40 Today

When things are not going right, you should walk away and come back later so why did I struggled on, no idea but I ended up with glue everywhere, usually I get on fine with silicone glue and cocktail stick but yesterday it went everywhere. The challenge on A Spoonful of Sugar was to have a number somewhere on your card so knowing someone is 40 soon I cut out the numbers on the cricut and Cute Card Thursday was Marshmallow and Chocolate, I think this card ticked both boxes, the papers are Doodlebug and the stamps are WOJ, the cute corners are a Quickutz die.

When my DT package came from SimonSaysStamps there was a set which I would call a more Arty set and I nearly needed Tena ladies because I can't do Arty.Don't get me wrong I love arty stuff as long as its someone else's. I've seen all the fab demo's, I've even had some workshops and I know basically what you have to do but mine still look blobs of messiness. The stamps are brilliant size for ATC, so to ease myself into using them thats what I've done.





The papers are College Press called Grayson and I'm not sure my ATC are really DT standard but at least I tried and I'm pleased with them
I've been asked about the stamp of the girl swinging in the tyre yesterday, it's two High Hopes stamps which you can buy from Dies to die for.

Oh Debby you make me laugh!! I loved the comment about needing Tena ladies - you sure don't - your work is gorgeous!!! Your challenge card is fabulous and I love what you did with your 'arty' stuff! I know the feeling tho' - some people are just incredibly talented at 'collage' stamping - it's quite a different form altogether from cutesy but you did an awesome job!!
Have a very Happy Easter!
Hugs, Dnaielle

Sue said...

Great ATC's, Debbie, you've done a fab job.

I love Arty too but don't seem to be able to create anything decent, the demonstrators at all the craft shows make it look so easy.

I love your 40 card, I've got on my wish list a machine to cut shapes, I'm toying between a Silhouette and Cricut.

Nicole Bailey said...

Oh Debby I LOVE all your cards! Love the forty...so cute and the ATC's are just beautiful.
