A Rockin’ 30th!! And some news!

Friday, 19 August 2011

I’ve been a busy girl since my last post, the weddings are looming ever closer and I have the stationary for one of them officially finished and the other one should hopefully be finished very soon – I’m just waiting on the last bit of information to get them finished.

I have lots of other projects on the go though including the greetings cards for the 2 weddings and some cards for a swap on the MAC forum – I’d better get a move on to get them done as they’re supposed to follow a summer theme and it’s not looking overly summery out there! Lol

The other thing I’ve got going on now that I’m very excited about and is the news I was referring to, is that I’ve joined my very first design team!!  I’m now part of the fabulous design team on the Alphabet Challenge Blog!  I’m so looking forward to the challenge of being on a DT and meeting so many fabulous people.  So, the challenge is up to the letter O and the challenge this fortnight is Only 3 embellishments.

My best friend recently celebrated her 30th birthday.  I bought her some rock concert tickets for her birthday, so in honour of the tickets, I thought I’d make her a suitably rock chick card!

My 3 embellishments are the Diamante “30”, the diamante strip and the swirl.

And guess what?...  I made a twisted easel card!...again!

But then they are fab, so I’m letting myself off with it! Lol
I used the fantastically rock chickesque Kenny K digi “Star”, which I coloured with copics and shaded with prismacolour pencils.

I used a couple of Whimsey Stamps tickets – cos I got her tickets, see!!

The papers I used are Basic Grey, Scarlet’s Letter.  I got the diamante 30 and the blingy strip from a local craft supplier, and I added a few Swarovski crystals to the Marianne design swirl, cos I thought there just wasn’t enough bling!

So why not pop over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog and have a peek at the other DT’s fab projects, and have a wee go yourself!  You know you want to!

My card fits the following challenges;
