Sunday 20 January 2013


Good Morning,

I hope you all had a nice day on Saturday, I had a lovely day. I have a little secret to let you all in on..... I am turning 30 in a few weeks time! Eeeeeek! So to help soften the blow a little hubby took me shopping yesterday to pick my present! All I will tell you right now is that is sparkly!

Anyway onto today's card which is the result of many attempts at both the Dynamic Duo and also the CAS-ual Fridays challenge. I was trying to make two separate cards and somehow ended up with one card for both. Bonus!

Supplies Used:
Avery Elle - Lots Of Love
X Cut Nesting Die
White Embossing Powder
Cardstock from my snippet box

Challenges Entered:
Pixies Crafty Workshop - Snippet Challenge
Cas-ual Fridays - Long & Short
Dynamic Duos

Hope you all have a nice relaxing Sunday lined up.

Thanks for visiting
