Feeling so Loved and Friday Challenge #14 , on a Saturday


Sorry I'm a little late in posting the Friday Bloggers Challenge!! You see yesterday was my Birthday and I was very very busy being pampered, flattered and loved!!!! I woke up to find this cute Birthday Banner on my Bathroom door ( I couldn't figure out initially why Jonathon was insisting that I get to the shower so quickly!) I was served a Scrambled Egg and Toast Breakfast compliments of Chef Jonathon!!!! I DID have to go to work, but received lots and lots of Birthday wishes there as well as flattery!!! (most said I didn't look a day over 35...........I wish!!!!).

Later in the evening, I was joined for Martini's and Dinner with a few good friends and of course I enjoyed a beautiful cake made by my Mother's friend Colleen!

So, here I am 43 now and looking forward to many more Happy Birthdays!!!!!


And now for my Card!!! The Challenge this week was to use a Spectrum Pad in our Project. I used the SU! Cotton Cotton Candy ink pad. Techniques included emboss resist (Stamp the images in Versamark ink onto glossy cardstock and roll the bray er through the pad and onto the cardstock. Take off excess ink with a paper towel). I then embossed additional images from the Snowburst set (SU! Holiday Catalogue) using Sterling Silver embossing powder. I embossed the Angel from Heavenly Tryptich in Silver onto Pretty in Pink Cardstock and added additional colour with my Aquapainters and watercolour crayons. The winds and cuff are filled in with white gel pen and I added diamond stickles to the wings. I used the Corner Rounder to create a scalloped border and the Cropadile to add eyelet holes to the middle of each scallop. I layered this onto Metallic Silver Paper that I had run through the Snowflake Cuttlebug. Pink Organdy Ribbon, crimped with the heat gun completes this project!
