2nd card for BBTB contest

Good morning everybody !

my second card is actually a birthday card i made for my wonderful niece who turns 15 next month, i used the hanna stamps for this card and i used minimonograms cart for the scalloped circles which i layered at the back in green and white. I cut the circles at 4" and 31/2"and i inked them . I used prisma pencils and gamsol to colour and i highlighted with stickles. ! A small green bow finished it off ! thankyou all for looking !!

card for BBTB contest

well i decided to enter my card for the bbtb contest, i made this card using the card feature on the zooballoo cart cut at 51/2" i then layered the opening with scalloped frames cut from accent essential cart cut at 31/2 ' 4' and 41/2 ". i inked and stickled all the edges. I also cut another two frames at 61/4"but on blackout so they were solid squares and adhered the card to them so i landed up with a scalloped border. i hope you like it wish me luck !

Well i have to say both my hubby and daughter loved their cards ! funny morning though i gave my Dh his gift which was lindor heart choccies and harley davidson books, ( he really wants a harley ),my daughter i gave her lindor heart choccies plus a dvd and a heart book ! they were both thrilled, my dh handed me my gift and he bought me the exact same choccies too funny !! i also got a picture of a scor-pal in my card with a little note asking me to order it and he would pay for it ! bless he didn't know where to get it from and he knew i really wanted one ! well it's on it's way ! yeah !!

last night though was a disaster ! we went for dinner and it took well over an hour for our food to arrive, half the food was missing and what we did get was cold, they took it away and microwaved it, half of it was still cold and they still forgot my salmon lol !! we gave up in the end and left to go to the movies. So we parked the car went to go in and couldn't get through the door it was megga busy !!! we landed up at walmart bought a movie came home and chilled in front of the tv ! now why didn't we do that in the first place !!
