Prickly Birthday Wishes!!

Good morning, what a gorgeous weekend we had.... hope you did too :0)
Not the best weather to craft in... much better to be out enjoying the sun just like the prickly little characters on my card today!!!

Have you seen these cute cacti in the new Paper Smooches set called Southwestern Charm??  Not only are they great for making a landscape or scene but they make great houseplants too, ideal for housewarming/new home cards or even a birthday card for the Mother in Law.... *wink* !!!!   
After a quick search through my Paper Smooches sets I found two suitable containers..... the base of the sewing machine and the thimble from Needle Little Love :0)

These guys (or gals) are so much fun to colour and I just had to add that smiley face and some prickles too. I went with a good old general 'Happy Birthday' this time from Birthday Sampler  but I'm sure you could think of some funny puns to use alongside the cacti and print them out on a computer of use Lawn Fawn alphabets to spell them out!!
