Celebrate Good Times

Friday, 1 March 2013

Come on!!
Did I just get a song stuck in your head?  Cos it's stuck in mine!

I hope everyone is well.
I hurt my back yesterday, I think it's just cos I've been sitting at various desks for so long and I have a terrible posture so it has aggravated my whiplash in my back :(  Hopefully a few stretches etc will sort it out.
It didn't help that I went to see a comedian last night and the whole show was rubbish!

But on a lighter note, it's time for a new challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog!  It was our lovely Avril's turn to choose the theme and she chose...

B for Bottles!

So you can alter one or have one in an image.  I chose to go the image route and here's my card:

My image is an oldie - Fizz by Sugar Nellie.  I coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E57,55,53,51. Bottle; Y15,13,11. Dress; YR04,02,00,RV34,32,10.

The papers are also oldies, Papermania, Diagonal Dots.  I used a Spellbinder circle die to cut out the image and then layered it over two Crown Circle die cuts, one in pink and one in peach.  I also used a Lea'bilities 'Frame Swirl' and a Cherry Lynn Designs 'Princess Tree' carrying on the fizz out of the bottle!
The "Celebrate" is a metal tag I got a couple of years ago in M&S in their gift wrapping department.  The ribbon and button are from my stash.

The inside, as always, compliments the front.

So go and check out what the rest of the DT did at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and join in with this fab challenge!
