Birthday Wishes


Happy Birthday Treak
I was dilly dallying yesterday on SCS, and sorting photos getting them ready for this blog etc and I started to get things ready for this post......and then I looked at the time and realised that in my hand was the card I am going to show you today....and the post was going to be collected from the post box in about 45 mins....and if I didn't get it in that box there was no chance that Treak would get it in time for her birthday! The air turned blue, I turned into a sprint runner (not a pretty sight!)....and made it just in time


There is a thread on SCS about people who are like me and collect lots of dp and don't urm use it...so I decided I would make a special effort in honour of Treak and use some dp I had never used before.....this is so spangly and new it was still in it's wrapper...and I used 3 different dps from the collection...

The layout is this weeks sketch challenge on SCS SC234, I stamped and coloured the image, adding a bit of extra glitter on the sea to catch the light.



I used my American Craft Glitter Marker but I found that it rubbed the card, I would say almost to the point of going through the card, has anyone got these markers and had the same problem?


I used some of the dp from the front on the inside to carry the theme through.





So what do you think?
