It's Friday - Ta Dah!

Hi there,

Just need to get a few birthdays off my chest before I start ..... today sees the following friends celebrating their birthdays:
  1. Sally - in Florida
  2. Kylie - in Australia
  3. Becky - surrogate daughter #2
  4. Maggi - trading card pen pal in the U.K.
That's a lot of birthdays on one day - don't you think? Hope you all have a perfectly SPLENDID day.

Next order of business ..... I'd like to welcome and thank new followers, Mags, and Chris and hope you'll both pop back from time to time

Now, on to the crafting .....

My bad shoulder has dissuaded me from doing too much crafting or blogging this week but I DID recently receive new stash from Inkyliscious this week (yes, Wynneth MADE ME DO IT!!! - cheers mate!) and just had to have a SEVERE tidy of the table of craftiness in order to have a play - here's a Christmas project using this fabulous Christmas tree image - it really didn't need anything else, other than a twinkly embossing powder.

Materials used:
  • 300 gsm white, deckle edged C6 card
  • 10 x 14 cm panel of deep red DCWV self adhesive card from a stack
  • 9½ x 13½ cm panel of white card
  • Inkylicious Christmas tree image stamped on to the white card panel using Versamark ink and Gold glitter embossing powder
  • Inkyliscious sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
I'm entering the above card for the "CASE the card" challenge over on the ABC Christmas challenge blog - I picked T is for TREE from their 2012 challenges.

But, since you can't keep a crafter down AND I had a new image land on my mat (this time from That's Crafty) I also managed a quick ATC yesterday ....

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • ATC sized piece of white card
  • Kaisercraft "ARTY" image inked using Versamark ink and pan pastel Violet tint sponged over just the stamped area
  • Close to the Heart numbers inked with Versamark ink and pan pastel Violet sponged the immediate area
  • Stampers Anonymouse random dots inked with Versamark ink and pan pastel yellow ochre spnged over the remaining area before setting the ATC with hairspray.
  • Sunshine Designs grass stamped with Versafine onyx black ink
Hope you like it - I am loving this weeks new stash - what a shame I can't have weeks like this every week?

I love the CASliciousness of that twinkly mod Christmas tree card! I'm sorry to hear you are having shoulder pain and hope it goes away soon! Just to be safe, you should lift your drinks with the other hand for a couple of weeks!
