Calender Girl

Well May was my Birthday month, so I thought I would take the opportunity to scrap the month and what I got up to, plus I really wanted to use the calender page from the Urban Lily Urban Cut collection - so here it is!
"May 2007" and the arrows are plain chipboard coloured with red ink.
The journalling is onto plain white paper in Word using Lucida Calligraphy font. The paper blocks were coloured with chalks.
The pictures and the journalling tell the story!!
By the way my birthday was the 21st!!!!

Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Use Acetate e.t.c

This weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge was from Kel:-

Kel says- Okay, this week I would like you to use some acetate, vellum, plasma or anything else remotely 'see-through' on your card. That's it!

So I made this! I killed two birds with one stone, because it is my Aunts birthday on Sunday and I had already decided to use the decoupage Kimono lady from Paper Nation, but had no plans to use acetate.
So the challenge prompted me to do that!

I printed the Happy Birthday (it is complete but I photographed it at an angle, just to prove it was acetate!!!) with my computer using Algerian font in Word.
I then decoupaged the lady and folded a little cut out fan that comes with her.

That's my card - and I have my Aunts party to go to tomorrow - I hopes she likes it!!

Daring Cardmakers - WOW my prizes

The reason I haven't had time to do the Daring Cardmakers challenges for the last couple of weeks is because I have had so many surprises droping through the door!!!
I was picked out from a draw from one of the challenges and ever since I have had lovely packages dropping through the letterbox.
So a huge thank you to Lythan, Gillian (with a pa
ckage all the way from Australia), Lynne, Rhi and Kathy for this:-
You have made my day (or several days!).
Will be back with this weeks challenge later!
