Washi Fun - Happy Birthday & A Surprise

Hi all, I've been having some fun with my Washi Tape!
I love the stuff, it's just perfect for a quick CAS card.
You might recall I made a few cards using this at Christmas time!
Not much to say about this wee card really, it's A6, the flower is from my
stash, I got them in the pound shop ages ago & I printed the 
sentiment onto the base card which is Linen Embossed CS.
That's about it really!
I'd like to enter this card in a couple of challenges:
Clear It Out - Anything Goes

Oh yes & the surprise!
I've not had the best couple of days, nothing serious at all, just trivial things
but when I got home from work, I had a note from the postie
to say he'd left a parcel for me with a neighbour!
I am expecting a delivery but it's a pair of tweezers, so I was intrigued........
Anyhoo, I rang the neighbours doorbell & the man of the house appeared with a huge
padded envelope! I was mystified by this point!
I chatted for a bit as you do but I was dying to get into the house
to investigate further.
Well, here's what this surprise parcel contained!

How amazing is that?
It's from a very lovely friend, very lovely indeed!
This has totally made my day!
I'm sure my Mum & I will find this very handy for making our 
fundraising cards for Breakthrough!
Thanks so much Nikki! You're one special lady! xx
