Who's Counting Anyway!?!?

These Emerson gals have got it all together, I love this comment...we think of it as birthdays...but really it is such a truth - we can take life for granted and forget that each day is a blessing! Thank you to Sharon (Aka *Doris* on SCS) for the Emerson images she sent me - I am having a lot of fun with them, and have a few birthdays coming up...so look out friends!!! LOL!

This card is for a new challenge I found through one of the followers of my blog (I love to find new blogs) it is called The Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog where it is all about buttons and bows - now I have to say here, I made this card without double checking the challenge and used ribbon and a button, but it was only AFTER I had finished the card that I realised that I had no bow - I am hoping that that gorgeous ribbon with 'Hugs & Kisses' over it will be fine....I would have lost that sentiment if I had made a bow!!!

The image was chalked and then I added the BLING - Kindy Glitz on the dress and CE on the cup and saucer, which I had already coloured with a red glitter pen, along with the flower on the hat! IRL this card is BLINGY and shimmers like crazy - it is so hard to capture it on camera!

This other card is the same image (you had already noticed that hadn't you!?!) but I did a different layout but added the same amount of BLING and shimmer!! Just thought I would use up some of those offcuts that build up - I think I can nearly see my desk now...LOL!! Hopefully I will actually get it tidy once I have made a few more cards...I am trying to get ahead with birthday cards, there are a few birthdays coming up in the Twisted Sisters and I want to allow for posting oversea....which is so unpredictable!!!

Thank you for visiting and for all the encouragement you have given me with your comments, I love seeing that you have been!! I hope you are having a great day, or for those of you who are about to go to bed - sleep well! God bless you!

  2. A really pretty card - no bow is fine the idea was to use up our buttons and ribbon and you've done just that. Thanks for taking part in the Kaboodle challenge and hope to see you taking part again.
