Finally....

...I got time to play!! I have used this card for 3 challenges. The sketch is from Ismaki with the option to use stars, the cupcake is for the food challenge over at CCT and it is a chocolate cupcake for the Tilda & Co. challenge. AND it is my baby's 4th b-day card!!! I cannot believe that Baby Rackle (as her sisters called her for years) is almost 4!!! I think I added alittle too much glitter and stuff but that is right up my 4 year old's alley!! I was also lucky enough to obtain this image from a friend who knows that I love Tilda!! (Thanks Sandy!!) I really wanted to use the Willow with cookies but apparently my irish luck is not with me as I believe my order was lost in the mail!! UGH ~ AND the stamps I ordered are sold out so I won't get them for like a month!!!! I think this really put a damper on my creativity!! I just wanted the WOJ stamps. But I put on my big girl panties and stopped whining long enough to make this card!! (LOL)

Paper: DCWV Sweet collection
Stamps: Magnolia, Candy ~ SNSS, Sentiment and hat ~ CTMH
Ink: Gamsol and prismas
Accessories : Ribbon ~ chatterbox, buttons ~ stash


Well thanks for reading my vent I feel slightly better now!! I hope everyone has a great night and a fabulous week-end!!!

Your little one will love it! Sorry to hear that the stamps has not arrived. I got mine very fast. Maybe you should drop Katharina en email and see where they are. Could also be that they have ended up in customs - since it's from Europe. So hang in there!
