Celebrate Good Times COME ON

Today we have a super fun challenge for you.  

We are excited at Stampotique that our fans have helped us grow so much and that our stamps,challenges and Facebook page have become such a big hit.  In honour of our excitement, and our 150th challenge, our theme is CELEBRATION.  We want you to create with celebration in mind, whether it's celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding, graduation or new baby...let's celebrate!
You know when you have an idea in your head about how you want your card to look, and everything just goes perfectly? - yeah well this was that cards evil twin! After about 3 hours in my craft room I was surrounded by paper, dies, stamps and all I had to show was the base layer, and I wasn't even sure if I liked that. So I walked away, and came back to it the day after.
Once Twinkie and Chessy were in place I felt a bit happier. I've also used the 'happy' from Daniel's Happy Happy Happy banner, and the balloons from Maria's Upward Bound. It's been finished off with a Happy Birthday, and my nephew's birthday card is all sorted. Obviously I'll leave it until the day I post it to put an insert in - no good ever came of being too organised :-)
So please join in with our celebrations, and you could be the lucky winner of a $30 gift certificate. Thanks very much for looking x

  4. Sue, thanks for the wonderful comment on my blog post today. Reading what you said just makes it all worth it, so CHEERS TO YOU! And, yes, I do know that feeling when you just can't get what you see in your head onto your paper, or canvas, or journal. But, in the end, you won! Great card! But, then, anything with Twinkie in it is a big hit in my book!
