Is it 5 o'clock???

Good morning bloggers hope you are all ok today!

I recently was fortunate enough to win 7 Bugaboo images which I really like - they are so funny and great for cards for friends who don't like cutsey.  So as I have a few birthdays coming up I thought I would put the images to good use, here is one I made the other day:


This image is JJ Tequila and Shoes "5 o'clock" and the sentiment comes with her.  I have coloured her with Copics and added Glossy Accents to her glasses and glass.  I have embossed the white pearl card behind the image and added some paper from Nitwits.  The image has been cut and matted with Spellbinders as has the sentiment and I used Edgeabilities die for the border.  Just some card candi coloured with Copics to finish off.  I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Catch the Bug - Dry Embossing
Catch the Bug - Stella Says Sketch
My Mum's Craft Shop - Embossing
Whimsy - Spots and Dots
Craft Room - Emboss It
Crafty Sentiments - Spots or Stripes
Shopping Our Stash - Girly (Stash: Candi, paper)

I am off for the day today to meet a friend for some shopping and lunch and a chin wag!!  I hope you all have a nice day whatever you are up to.  Thanks for looking and please leave a comment so I can visit you too - take care xx

Hi Susan, what a great card and a lovely image.
Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog, Susan I am in the UK too and I buy the papers from Dies to Die for, here

thought you might like to know.
Have fun! Hugs Teresa xx

Teresa said...

Hi Susan, I don't think they do actual pads of papers only separate sheets, they do sell out quickly too. You will love them, the hard part is actually cutting them, they are too precious lol. hugs Teresa. xx
P.s. I always buy the 12" sheets and make two cards from one sheet.

Carol said...

Teresa said...

Hi Susan, me again sorry, I've just looked on Dies to die for and there's lots of the Pion papers, you may have been looking in the wrong place, take a look here, there's lots of pages of them, if you ring Tracy I'm sure she will let you add to your order if you want to. hth, hugs Teresa xx
