Time to Celebrate

Good morning hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I would like to extend a warm welcome to my latest followers:  Designer Diva, Patrice and Marianne.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Hobbycutz and the theme this week is:


Here is my card:

I used Happy Hour by Kenny K one of this week's sponsors - thank you.  She has been coloured quite simply with Copics to match the paper, I added some Glossy Accents to her glass.  The paper is Echo Park Hybrid "Happy Days".  I used Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax to cut the image out and their Fishtail Stax to mat the sentiment which is by Cheery Lynn.  The beautiful heart is a lasercut from Hobbycutz which is available here.  I painted the heart with Acrylic Paint then painted it with Glossy Accents so it is nice and shiny like a lacquered one in real life.  Here is another view:

We have three wonderful sponsors this week:  Kenny K, Whimsy and our very own Hobbycutz.  Please go over to the challenge for more details.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Pattie's Creations - Spots or Dots
KennyK's Krafty Krew - Anything Goes

Well I didn't get any housework done yesterday, by the time I got back from dropping Dave at the train station and shopping I wasn't in the mood.  I have to do it all today! Hopefully it will leave me some crafting time before I go pick Dave up at the station at 6.  Have a wonderful day whatever you are doing and thank you so much for looking! Take care xx
