ooops ... this is a little blurry!

Added: Thurs 16th Feb …. Woo hoo! I am so tickled to be picked as the Festive Friday winner for this card!!! Even though there were only 3 entries … I am still just as thrilled. A surprise like this is always welcome! Thanks Nicole!

Hi bloggies!

By the time you read this … I will be packed up and ready to get on our way down the coast for a few days. Half the family is already there … and are staying for a week. But Gav, Sandy & I have 4 days break!!! Yay!!! Poor Sheree & Murray have to come back Sunday night for work on Monday! Anyway … I have to get packed … so I have to make this quick! I wanted to support Nicole’s latest “Festive Friday” challenge … and quickly put this together tonight … because her last challenge had NO ENTRIES!!! I felt so sorry for her … so I promised I would encourage all my blog friends to have a go at this challenge! The challenge is to use inspiration from one of the DT girls card samples. I chose Nicole’s … simply because the colours really grabbed my eye!

I also took the image from Nicole’s card … and represented her shimmer by adding a silver ornament! I have seen this idea to stamp inside the ornament all around in blog land … but haven’t any particular person to thank for this inspiration.

Well … off to pack! I am so frustrated at my lack of stamping lately … but I think that this will be my life for this year. With working two days a week for Gav … and minding Bree 2 maybe 3 days a week … it won’t leave a lot of time for stamping! 😦 Gotta fly ….. See you all again on Wednesday! (Unfortunately … I only had time for this one card … and so couldn’t prepare any more scheduled posts!) Sorry!! 🙄

DON’T FORGET TO POP OVER TO NICOLE’S CHALLENGE. SHE IS HELPING US TO GET A START ON OUR CHRISTMAS CARDS EARLY THIS YEAR … BY HAVING A CHRISTMAS CARD CHALLENGE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR! I hope to play along as much as I can! 😀

  1. Great Card Andrea! I linked it for you on my site’s link tool since you went away, otherwise it wouldn’t have been entered!
    Andrea adds: Giggle … I went to add it this morning before we left … and wondered how on earth it was already there!!! Thanks for thinking of that! Hugs xxx

  4. I am so v v bad that I have not entered any of Nicole’s challenges yet. for some off reason her posts stopped entering my inbox!!?? Dare I say this is now my 3rd pink pill in 3 days….;) (LOL). Great design for a Chrissy card tho. Something v v dramatic abt black. I too am v v frustrated by lack of stamping/creativity/commenting time!!! I think the universe is conspiring against us!!! Travel safe and have a ball. ooxx
    Andrea adds: I have hardly had an email alert at all … and then I get one with 8 posts!!! Not very efficient! No more for the last few days, either! I hope she might be able to fix the prob! I am so itching to have a stamping marathon … and make a stack of cards!!! I am at the point of not being able to blog … until I stamp!!! Sad situation! 😦 The universe is in a conspiracy for sure! Hugs xxx

    • Glad to hear that u are getting the BULK turn ups in ur inbox too….thought I was the only one. They use to come in daily…usually the day after she posts…but not now. I share the yearning to do some hard core stamping…but when the universe is ready…hopefully I will be too!! ooxx
      Andrea adds: Yes … I am not ‘overwhelmed’ with comments … but enough to keep me smiling and feeling loved! 😀 Gav is away Friday night / Saturday … perhaps some stamping will happen then … although … with a wedding to take a peek at … and some birthday shopping to do … perhaps not??? 😉 Hugs xxx
