Fussy and Fancy Challenge #163-"Birthdays"

Good Friday morning dear blogging friends!!

Well we are now into May and it seems that MAYBE we will finally get SPRING!!! 

Today at Fussy and Fancy we are celebrating "Birthdays" with out talented hostess Sasha!!  Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Live and Love Crafts!  Sandy has offered a gift voucher for one lucky winner!

So with Spring in mind...Spring cleaning to be exact...I've been going through my craft room...I have SO much stuff that when I'm looking for something in particular I can never find it...LOL (I have to laugh...the alternative being crying)!!  So some purging and organizing is in order...I've been giving a lot away to friends and their crafty children!! 

Okay so the point of that ramble was that I came upon these Wellington DO CRAFT...papers/toppers and stamps.  Now I'm not a huge topper user so I thought that I'd give it a fun...decorating without the colouring!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I used this cute little guy sitting by a wonderfully flower enhanced lazy stream...
added some ribbon, lace, pearls, stick pin, flowers of coarse, some natural fibers and  a couple of sentiments...

I sure don't know why I haven't used these toppers before cause it sure worked up quickly and the image is simply darling!!  Now I know that my talented Fussy and Fancy Sisters have some beautiful "Birthday" creations to show you so won't you please pay them a visit??!!
Until next time...thank you for taking the time to stop by!!  Your visits and comments are SO very much appreciated!!!
