Is that even a word, "threefer"? What I meant was three challenges in one, like two-for-one, only with three, get it? OK, I should probably be going to bed, 'cause I'm gettin' a little goofy! I was away on a little holiday last week, so when I came home yesterday with some new goodies, I was just rarin' to go. I love this stamp set from Tim Holtz with the bird, swirl and handwriting (which you can just barely see in the background there), don't you? I think I'll be using it a lot. Anyhoo, my 3 three challenges are these:

CPS 179 Part 1: a sketch, never tried one of their sketches before, but I love it. Of course, I had to flip it around a little and change it up some, but the idea is still there.

Design Dollies: colours this week are yellow, white, and kraft. LOVE it, may use it again for a layout, stay tuned!

Stampin' Royalty: make your own background paper. I used two different background stamps to make two different backgrounds. Must get more background stamps, very versatile things, they are!

And there you have it, a nice little birthday card for my Auntie Judy, whose birthday I missed by about 3 weeks, more like 4 by the time it gets to her. Oops!

Supplies (all Close to My Heart): card base, White Daisy cardstock, ribbon slide, and flower brads, Intrinsic Backgrounds My Acrylix stamp set, Exclusive Inks stamp pads in Creme Brulee, Desert Sand, and Cocoa

Other: Tim Holtz Urban Grunge stamp set and Tea Dye Distress Ink, unknown ribbon and paper flowers, staples

  1. What a pretty card! Nice background! Thanks for playing with us at Stampin' royalty.

  2. yeah, well i'm glad you dug the colours, girlie, and it TOTALLY shows here - this card is HOT! thanks for playin' again with the Dollies! (enjoying some good Canadian music here, too - woot!)

  3. This is very pretty! I love the bird image! Thanks for joining us at CPS this week!!


  4. Hey Roxy, I love your music and I bet a lot of others do to, got the first one on now, it sounds really like my style of lyrics, I love your new Tim Holtz stamp, I love it and I think you are so right it will just be a very well used stamp, gorgeous with the flourish, I keep waiting to go and buy some of his stuff, but by the time it hits over here with dollar exchange etc. just too exy. I have heard of the book you are reading and it got fantastic reviews. I am reading my 3rd Lesley Pearse at the moment, I seem to like her style and the op shops seem to have alot of hers, so yay. Have you heard of Bisous, I just love their gorgeous stuff and they are Canadian. ps. had to laugh re: referee the kids, I only have one and 2 poodles and still referee here too. ps. really liking your choice of songs.
