Let's Taco About Your Birthday!

Good morning and welcome to a random in-the-middle-of-my-holiday post when I have more free time to actually craft! It's the Easter holidays here in the UK and being a teacher I get the whole 2 weeks and 1 day off, although I do have some school work to do, like planning and making lesson resources! But for this week I am actually having a holiday and am catching up on some of the fun (and not so fun) stuff that I want to get done, but never have the time or energy to do! First on the agenda - crafting and entering a few challenges that I never get round to doing!'s a fun birthday card using the new Year Nine from Lawn Fawn with the taco stamp! I actually love tacos and we eat them all the time at home and often go to our local Mexican restaurant and have them there too.

I used some old retired Stampin' Up papers on this card, but kept with the red, green and yellow theme to represent the tomatoes and salsa, lettuce and guacamole and cheese that I love to smother over my minced beef tacos!
