bored and tired of winter.... Hello Sunshine card

Hi there! Welcome back!
I hope you are all having a great week!
I've had time to make another card... thanks to long baby naps!! I really cherish those few hours when Alaia is in school and Aisha closes her eyes for a little nap.... First I make myself a cup of tea, relax for a bit and then I start crafting!

This card is for one my friends in Spain, whose birthday will be really soon.... Hence the Happy Birthday sentiment in Spanish.

The digital stamp I've used is call Pip and it's from Emerald Faeries. I've had it for such a long time (I won her in a challenge ) and I haven't had the chance to colour her until now...
I have so many stamps (digi and rubber) still waiting to be coloured and be used in a project... I seem to keep on buying and buying.. impossible to use them all! but they are so pretty I can't resist!
I will hopefully have more time for crafting and use them...
