Party 2010

Just a quick post with the card I should have finished last night and posted! I have to go to work in an hour (or probably less would be better) and yesterday it took about an hour to get the snow off my car especially the windscreen. Then to crown it all I was heading out the track from our house to the very narrow back road that leads to the main road when all the snow slid off the roof onto the windscreen so I had to stop and get rid of that. I just love winter......not"!!

I'm hoping to enter 3 challenges with this card. I coloured this cute PB image with Promarkers and cut it out with nesties. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss "celebrate"which I then went over in silver pen as it wasn't showing up very well. I also used the bug to cut out the numbers which I decided to raise on foam pads. Not one of my best ideas as even the tiny foam pads are a bit big in places and I had to cut them. To crown it all the little paper covers were not too keen on coming off! I used some lovely Bo Bunny DP - it's lovely and bright and this is both sides of one sheet. The flowers were cut out from vellum and DP with a Martha Stewart punch and the card candy is from Craftwork Cards. And that's it really. Needless to say I did not get as much done yesterday as I had hoped but I have got some more tidying done and some today too. Still not really tidy though!!

The challenges I am entering are:-

Simon Says Stamp Challenge:- Party.
Truly Scrumptious:- Sketch and use vellum.
Penny Black:- Happy New Year.

Think I've just got time to post this and enter the challenges and then I really need to get a move on and go out and brave the snow!!!

    I have coloured a few of the ones you sent me, just need to get them on a card...
    I brought some stamp's from funky kit's yesterday, they have a sale at the minute, I got 3 half price and a couple of other's...I really liked the ones you sent me so had to get some of them in rubber...

    How's the weather there, we had 4 inches of snow yesterday, I am really glad I don't need to go out in it.
