You Rock! Birthday Card

Morning everyone!

I made this card very quickly last night for Adele to give to her new boyfriend
as it was his birthday.
Kids! they never give you any notice, it's I need it now!
So I had twenty mins to throw it together.

I kept to black, white and a bit of silver.
The stamp set comes from Inkadinkadoo

Got to run, prep in for more classes.

My day at the NEC yesterday was fantastic!
We all had a great day, saw lots of demonstations so I picked up a few ideas.
As usual spent to much but hey you can't take it with you!
I don't drink or smoke so this is my pleasure and I am pleased to say
that I never used my plastic little friend. I was tempted at one bit, it was a new machine
like the craft robo which connects to the computer and can cut chip board but it was over £400,
I thought no way, I have a Cricut Expression and I will stick with that.

This is what I bought!
8 pots shimmering iridescent watercolour paints
pallete of pearlescent watercolours
3D crystal lacquers
labels one nestabilities
6 sheets of unmounted stamps
4 woodmounted stamps

and the following I did not photograph!
5 sheets of Penny Black stickers
7 rolls of the red backed doublesided tape
5 tubes of photo glue
box of card
3 magazines
and a craft mat for heat embossing which protects your work surface.

see you tomorrow!
