Get your drink on!

Ok, now that I have your attention...! ☺ Good morning and happy Friday to you! So I was playing in my craft cave yesterday and came up with this little gem:


the inside:


I know it's after New Year's, but I wanted to use these stamps! Also, this is a rare card I've made since it doesn't use ANY designer paper! I did try a new technique (to me at least). I used adhesive tape in two widths and poured glitter on them. {side story: If you've ever used glitter, you know how it gets everywhere, regardless of how careful you are using it and cleaning up after using it. Now keep in mind that I made this card before I had to leave for a doctor's appointment. Yeah, still had glitter on me. I can only imagine what was going thru the doc's head when she saw the glitter! LOL!}

Anyhooo, that's my story and I'm sticking with it! I'll be entering this card for a few challenges. Two are for the Drunken Stampers challenges: A toast to the New Year and challenge 112: All that Glitters. I'm also entering this for Simon Says Stamp's challenge: Something New, (my "New" is the New Year!) and for Unity Stamp's Friends With Flair.



Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a fabulous day!

Chris ☺

  11. I am NOT a fan of glitter, for the very reason you talk of -- it gets EVERYWHERE! I hope your Dr found the humor in it! Great card, BTW.
