Anyway, I remembered just in time but then couldn't find the Dimension Fourth Alphabet stamps I wanted to use. I spent a good 2 hours searching through all my loads of stamps at least 6 times with no luck at all and I was so mad at myself because I thought I had lost them. In the end I had to come up with a different idea and it ended up being well into the early hours of the morning when the card finally got finished. However, when I went to my daughter's (Isabella's Mummy) with said card and pressie the next day, I mentioned the much searched for stamps and guess what ??????? I loaned them to Jenna several months ago!!!!! Grrrr, I wasted all that time because I have such a terrible memory. Still at least I haven't lost my stamps and this was my finished card.
I apologise for the poor photo but it was quite early in the morning and the light was very dreary. I didn't have time to set up how I normally take my photos either which would have helped. The papers I used were all from a DCWV stack called The Linen Closet and they are all absolutely gorgeous. Many of them are highlighted with glitter and have beautiful designs all in this colourway. As you can see there is only one tiny bit of stamping for the sentiment. I had just received my brilliant Tim Holtz/Sizzix rosette die so had to put that to good use didn't I. I used a Martha Stuart lacy ribbon punch, a Sizzix leaf flourish and Sizzix 'Hugs' die. I don't think I got the balance quite right when positioning the rosettes but it was about 2.30 in the morning and I was too tired to see straight I think. That's my excuse anyway, Lol!
Well, Hubby's back to work tomorrow and I start my normal child minding duties with my other little granddaughter Alexa. It's her 3rd birthday in March so I'd best not forget that too and leave her card until the last minute. Rushing takes all the fun out of it. I hope you've all had a really good New Year weekend and I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for a happy, healthy and peaceful 2011. I'd also like to thank you all for your visits and the lovely comments you left me over the past year. I really do appreciate every last one of them.
Love and Hugs
