Little Tangles #57/The Crooked Stamper, Colour Q #293, SSS Wednesday 3/6, Simply Create Too #87, Seize The Birthday 4/6 … and a Winner!

As promised following my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Finale, I’m back today to announce the winner of the US$30 Gift Card that Julie and Shay generously gave me.  Thank you so much to everyone who left me such lovely comments after each performance, I appreciate you all!  I won’t keep you in suspense any longer … the randomly drawn lucky winner, who can now go on a Winnie & Walter spree, is Claire A … congratulations, Claire … I’ve emailed you!

While you’re here, how about a card … my first ‘just because I can’ one for a looooooong time … it was good just to play … and make this …

N&T 57, CQ 293, SSSW 3-6I was inspired here by the sketch at Little Tangles (which is a joint challenge with Leslie at The Crooked Stamper) and the colours from Colour Q.  The Neat & Tangled ‘Happies’ were stamped onto white card, cut with a Papertrey circle die, edged with a black Promarker and clear embossed to add some shine.  I cut a chevron border into a white panel using a little diagonal die from Papertrey, and stamped/heat embossed the ‘Birthday’ (from Technique Tuesday, thanks to my lovely friend, Darnell).  The base card was covered with black card, the ‘Happies’ were popped up on foam tape over the chevrons, and the finished panel was popped up onto the black.  I pondered over dots/gems … but as this will eventually be heading to a teenage boy, I thought better of it … don’t think bling would go down too well!

I’m playing along with …
