AMYRS73 & Simon Says Challenge

Hello everyone. Another busy week here in Dundee! Can’t believe it’s already Friday, the kids have been SO busy at school this week, so for all of our sakes I am glad it’s over! 2 days of relaxing ahead, Yahoo!

The card I am posting today qualifies for 2 challenges. I based the card on Amy’s Friday Sketch, and the theme is based on the challenge over at Simon Says – Christmas in August. What the Simon Says Challenge made me realise is that I am DESPERATELY short of Christmas themed stamps!!! I have about 5 Christmas stamps, but only 1 Christmas sentiment. Needless to say, the sentiment I have used on this card is a touch on the big side. Sorry!! It’s the only one I have. LOL. I had better remedy the situation soon, cause Christmas is just around the corner.

Anyway, here is Amy’s Sketch:

And my card & closeup:

The stamp I used is from a South African company called Best Rubber Stamps. I am not too sure if the company is still running though. The pp is Basic Grey, and the Copics I used are : E00, E11, E21, E31, E33, E51; W3; R20, R46; G21, G99; YR23, BG10. For those that are new to Copics, the YR23 is a great colour to use as Gold. I also added a bit of gold glitter to the cute angels wings.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend. I am hoping to make a card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge over the weekend, so hop on by to check it out if you get a chance!

Oooooh so cute. I see I am lacking behind on the Christams cards!
I will try in the next few days to stamp out new images for you. But I see there is still a service delivery issue, my post office was closed yesterday due to protests.
