Not Just For Christmas

Good morning to you. We arrived back from London yesterday afternoon. Had a good time at the Baby Show although I thought £15 to park was a bit OTT! Had a wonderful time with my gorgeous grandsons Harrison and Rafe so hard to have to say goodbye to them.

I have a card that was made for Sassy Designs as they are sponsoring the challenge at Crafty Girls which is Anything Goes.  Here is my card:


I have used Sassy Don't Open Til Christmas and she doesn't have to be just for Christmas I have used her for a birthday card.  I coloured her with my Copics and used Dienamics Pierced Rectangles to cut her out.  Papers are Hometown Proud Designs by Dani which are digital from The Sweet Shoppe.  I used my Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders and the pennant was made with Whimsy Pennant Greetings Stamps. Here is another view:


Challenges I would like to enter:

Incy Wincy Designs - Birthdays

It is my Aunt's 92nd birthday today so my Sister and I  are taking her out for dinner tonight to celebrate.  Hope you have a wonderful day whatever you are doing, thank you so much for looking. Take care xx

Happy Birthday to your Aunt, have a wonderful time together this evening.
Glad you enjoyed the show......yes! the price of parking is shocking plus the price of getting the show that's getting more expensive every time.
Oh! Better not forget your wonderful card!!! Love the image, the super colouring, the great papers and design.
Have a fantastic day and evening

Hi Susan - glad you had a great time with your family in London ... I'm afraid to say that parking down here at one our local railway stations is £12.50 for the day, so I don't think £15 in London is quite so bad!
Love the card, especially the fun image and the bright colours. Pretty pennants too! With my DT "hat" on thanks for playing at Incy Wincy Designs this week in our Birthdays challenge. Hope you, your sister and Aunt have a lovely meal and evening!

Fabulous card Susan - beautifully coloured image.
I know what you mean about it being hard to say goodbye to the Grandchildren - I had to say goodbye to Lola yesterday after her visit for the weekend - I wish she lived a little closer :o(
