Some Firsts Plus A Double - But Is It Right? xxx

After the challenge fiasco of yesterday, I thought I'd try again!! And it was even more of a fiasco when I realised that the Cuttlebug challenge was to do a mainly WHITE card.

It clearly wasn't and I'm clearly very dim (either that or I've lost the ability to read lol xxx)
There are a few 'firsts' here, with possibly the biggest one
being that I have got it right lol xxx

The stamp I used is a LOTV Moggi stamp - oh sooo sweet -so this fits nicely into the LOTV challenge which this week is 'Anything Goes'. I think I'm right in saying that this is the first time I have had a go at this challenge but there is a nagging doubt in my befuddled brain that I might have done something with an eskimo once (ohh matron lol xx).

But no matter!!

This is also my card for Cute Card Thursday which is to use something you got for Christmas or if not, use something you bought over the holidays, so in this case, the stamp, and this is it's very first outing.

I coloured it with Pro Markers and there is a liberal sprinkling of glamour dust there today, and the old fave MSBP punch has made yet another appearance (that babba has to be my buy of the year 2008, dontcha think???) The spotty-licious ribbon is Poppicrafts and those cutie lil heart buttons are from the very depths of my button stash which is now almost as big as my ribbon stash.

But not quite lol xx

There is a first with the paper as well cos the pink dots and frames paper is from Willow Designs. This is the first thing I have ever bought, but it won't be the last for sure, cos they are beee-you-tiful :))

Of course, I couldn't do a card without something PP, hence the fabulous black and white doodley border paper which is from the Rainbow Doodles collection, and again this is one of the very first PP things I bought but I use time and time again, cos it is sooooo doodlicious lol xxx

Have a better look xxxx
(I'm not sure why I started doing this funny angle thing but I kinda like it so I might just stick with it).

So that, my lovelies, is that for now. Possibly I might see ya later, but it's our Kyla's birthday tomorrow and being the disgraceful grandma that I am, I haven't even made her a card yet!! Shame on me!! But I will get it done.

I cannot believe she is 3 already cos it only seems like yesterday when we were washing all the teeny tiny clothes (ohhh those ickle vests and socks) ready for her to be born.

Have a fab day and stay warm xxxxxx

Hiya Dawny
Oh this is gorgeous - I got some of these images from Amanda and haven't used them yet - Now I'm itching to get it coloured!!!
Well have a great weekend and hope Kyla has a ball as I'm sure she will at 3 years old - all that excitement!!


Sharon Caudle said...

This card is just too sweet Dawny! Love that paper and those cute little pink heart buttons you used on your border punch! Yes, I think that was your buy of the year! You have definitely gotten your moneys worth out of that one. I still love that punch just as much as I did the first day! I am NOT growing tired of it! I've gotten into taking angular pictures of my work too. Sometimes they come out, sometimes they don't. Anyway, I've rattled on enough. Love your card, and have a great weekend!

Who cares if you have mistaken the challengesbecause the CARDS LOOK GREAT!

cats whiskers said...

Hi Hunny,, you do find it easy to spend my money, after seeing this card I had to go and order the papers and then I saw another CD I wanted, no will power!!!. Thanks for your good advice, we must be so alike hun what you recommend is exactly the way I managed to give up last time, I just kept putting off the first one in the morning until it got to the afternoon and then I didn't want to give in. Will have a go next week.
Big Hugs dear
