Ismaki Challenge 1

This is the first Ismaki challenge of the year, and I really wanted to join in. I must admit I have cut it a bit fine with my timing but hey ho! The option this week was snowflakes, but I really can't face another Christmassy card just yet - mainly because I left 2008's till the last minute. I really must be more organised this year lol.
I've used my new Murray & Ethel stamps for this 50th birthday card. I saw them on C&C, but being a Northern lass, wouldn't pay the p&p from there. I got them from a fantastic e-bay seller, no p&p and they arrrived the day after I ordered 'em. These are quite large and stamp very nicely. I've finally got round to buying an anti-static bag and wow what a difference it makes - no more splodgy embossing powder!
The plain brown cardstock is DCWV self adhesive. I love this for using with the Cuttlebug - no more trying to put glue round scalloped edges - great!
I really enjoyed the challenge and promise to be earlier next week
