3 challenges in 1 card !

Wow have impressed myself here ! 3 challenges completed in 1 card and it wasn't deliberate . . . I promise.

There is a fab sketch over on the "Just Magnolia" blog and the fabby Katie had sent me this image which was just perfect to use for my Nephew's birthday card. Now my nephew has an unusual name and I always like to include it on his presents / cards etc as I don't think I could find a personalised card in any shop . . .

. . . . . which nicely fits into the "Cute Card" challenge this week (to use letters & numbers). Finally the "Simon Says" challenge wanted us to make a card for the "boys / men" . . . yep another challenge completed. Yeah me!

Papers: Shabby Princess
Image: Edwin (Spring collection)
Stickers: TLC

Stamps: SU Whimsey Garden
Other bits from stash

Love this SU sentiment stamp which reads "the time to be happy is now. the place to be happy is here".

Now got to get a move on as have to prep 30 butterfly masks ready for decorating tomorrow . . . eek and also MUST photograph my DT card for the NEW POLKA DOODLES challenge on Friday - I hope you didn't forget and we can't wait to see.

Take care,

x x x
