Anything Goes

Good morning everyone! Today sees the start of a new challenge at Wags 'n Whiskers and the theme this week is Anything Goes!!  Here is my card:

I have used Wags 'n Whiskers Sip 'n Sun available here an coloured with Copics and Chalks.  The papers are Heather Roselli  'Under The Boardwalk' digi papers.  Dies used are Cheery Lynn Burlap Border and Tags 2, Memory Box Petite Umbrella (I chopped the end off to make a parasol), Joy Crafts Summer Lovin' and SB Rectangles.  The sentiment is PC generated and gems from stash and some glossy accents on the drink!

The lucky winner will receive a Wags 'n Whiskers rubber stamp.  You don't have to use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp/image to enter but if you do you will be entered into a separate draw for a free Wags 'n Whiskers digi!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Clear it Out - Anything Goes and 2+ DPs (Stash - gems, cardstock)
Cuttlebug Mania - Cats and Cuttlebug (I used mine to cut all the dies out)
Get Inky - Die Cuts
Incy Wincy - Animal Antics
One Stitch at a Time - Summer Fun

Well my die has still not turned up! And I think I am loosing the plot completely now.  I told you the other day that I was thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer for the Mayzy May Blog Hop which starts at midnight tonight.  Well for some reason I woke up at 1:20 this morning convinced that it was Saturday morning and I hadn't done the post!! I ran up to my computer which took ages to come on and started writing my post, I kept thinking I can't believe I forgot!!!  Then when I was linking back no one else had their post up and I kept thinking this is awful everyone has forgot.  Then I saw the date in the corner of my computer and I thought that was wrong too!!  It was only when I googled an on line calendar and saw that the 17th was actually Friday it dawned on me that it wasn't Saturday.  My goodness how do these things happen, I'm sure they didn't happen when I was younger!!

Thank you so much for coming around to see me today - its always a pleasure!  I will be back at midnight for the Mayzy May Blog hop so see you then! Take care xx

What a lovely summery card Susan, I love your adorable image and pretty papers.
I think most of us have a funny five minutes sometimes - I have to agree that they do seem to happen more often as we get older though!

Craftychris said...

I quite often don't know what day it is!! Such a cute card! xx

Carol said...

A gorgeous sunny card Susan, love it. Your post did make me laugh...glad I'm not the only one who loses the plot occasionally. Carol x

~Tammy~ said...

You're so funny! I make things way in advance and I have tired to take the time to write the post then and there, but on occasion I don't get to it, so I panic about what has been written and what hasn't. Or I go and write a post and forgot that I already did it. I swear I am losing it, but I like to call it Mommy brain and that I have a lot going on up there I am trying to manage!

Your card is so cute! I bet that is one happy cat! Love the polkadot umbrella!
