I missed it!

Hello blogworld

I missed my first blog birthday!  It was yesterday!  I sat down tonight with a really snappy post all about what I was doing this time last year, asking you to guess and all ready to sing myself happy birthday - bet you're glad you missed that one!!! - and light the candles on the cake and I missed it!!

Typical of me, I'll be late to my own funeral is a phrase that that springs to mind and is ringing in my ears from my childhood.

You know I've had a great time in blogworld: - I've got onto Design Teams (something that I never would've dreamt was possible with my lack of confidence in my cards) meet wonderful Teamies and made some great friends and none of this would've been possible if I'd kept on saying to myself one day, maybe, sometime I'll start a blog!  Still never won a Lili of the Valley challenge - the main reason I started blogging but there you go I won others!!  They don't know what they missed - eh!

So another one of my averagy cards to share.  This one has a purpose, it's one of Emily's little friends' birthday on Monday and this is her card.  She's having an after school party at her house (well her parents are having it for her!) first time we've been to a party after school.  Hmmmm, wonder how that one will work with a half-dozen or so tired 4 and 5 yr olds - will report back!

So waffle done, here's card:

 Close up of image - you'll have to excuse that the ice-cream smudged.  All was fine and then I went and added Stickles - the colouring ran!!  Damn
I used:

Pollycraft digi image: Kiki ice-cream, coloured with my Promarkers, Flexmarkers and a white gel pen.
Cut out with a nestie circle and mounted onto a nestie circle scallop
Papers are all scraps so I've no idea whose they are.
Ribbon, chiffon and pearls from my stuff
The 5 is an American Thickers sticker (soooo old!) and covered in Glamour Dust
Craftwork Cards: card blank and sentiment

So hope you all have a weekend and see you soon,

Oh and I know I've loads of comments to catch up on, I'll try over the weekend otherwise it will be next week before I get a chunk of 'puter time.
