It's my party!

Hi everyone,

The weather here in the Netherlands is very wintery! It is very cold and slippery outside. Fortunately Simon Says Stamp and Show a new challenge for us to keep us busy and inside! It's one that makes you think a bit, at least that's what I had to do. The challenge is, "What I'm known for"? I had to dig deep to figure out what I'm known for, and I think it's my use of embellishments. Like the wooden stars, and jute twine. I use both almost for all my projects when I get the chance. In daily life I'm known as the lemonade girl, especially at work. I don't like coffee and don't drink tea often... I drink lemonade all day... Not the best thing for me, I know...



Anyway, on with the card that I made. It is the invitation that I have sent to my friends for my birthday party I recently gave. I started with a white background and made some spletters with Glimmer mist and Dylusion Sprays. Then with stamps and distress ink made ​​some texture. I love the Sew Stampers! Although the ink really stays wet for a long time, have you noticed that? And put a bunch of washi tape on it. The Memory Box Alphabet Dies are really great. Gorgeous font! Love that they are separable.









To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  2. What a fantastic set of invites. You didn't keep it simple with these did you!! I love how you use washi tape because it always looks like it needs to be there (rather than just for decoration if that makes sense) and you are never shy with colours. Love this and I bet the people who received these are going to treasure them. Hugs, Jenny x
