And Just Like's August!

It's definitely true, when you get older that clock does seem to move faster!  Maybe, not to sound morbid, but we perhaps acknowledge our mortality, and now we realise, gosh, I better do those things I had always put off for another day before there is no other day.  Anyway, just a thought I had out loud.

Ok, I went looking for some challenges that would fit in with some cards I needed to make I decided to go with The Birthday Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World which can be found HERE.  This is the sketch that was on offer:

I rotated the card around for this one.

I've also decided to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is Anything Goes, just can't pass that up!

This is a card for a special little girl, my friends' daughter who turns 8 tomorrow.  And here is what I came up with:

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah
Ink: Hero Arts; Versafine
Stamps: Hero Arts (Long Branch; Howl Are You)
Other: Stickles

Oops, and as I type this I just realised that Cath said either a card with "all stamping" or "no stamping", so I guess Stickles is a problem.  Oh well, c'est la vie.  I had fun, that's what counts.  I like that I could represent our family with the Owls, just the three of us.

I think I am starting to "feel it" again, you know, the excitement of crafting, so perhaps you will see me around a bit more.  Off to make this little girl's brother a birthday card as he turns 10 on the same day!  No pressure!

Have a fabulous day!
