Oops!

Hi guys!

I knew going into it that this week was going to be a busy one... lots going on at work and all the fun stuff going on here at the blog. And I was so proud of myself for getting cards made ahead of time, feeling all prepared for each day. That is until I sat down to write up a post for today and realized that I had completely spaced creating anything for this week's new Tickled Pink challenge ... talk about an oops moment! Oy!

So instead I've got a card featuring the digi version of the original Kellita that I made a few months back which was actually featured in the Aussie Copic mini mag, Copicendium. Sammi is a total sweetie and I was really excited when she asked me to contribute a couple cards to the first edition of her magazine. :)

Today lets just pretend that I did some ripping and tearing on this card 'cause that is the challenge over at the TP challenge blog. And if you head on over there you are sure to find plenty of actual inspiration by the rest of the lovely challenge team!

Hehe, I love making Christmas cards, which means I'm often (too) late with creating and sending birthday cards, esp. male ones. Great card, love how you placed Kellita on the foreground. You did some amazing ripping and tearing here. It's so neat it appears to be cut instead, LOL!

hallo amy
wat ik zo leuk vind aan deze kaart is dat het papier heel zacht van kleur is en de afbeelding prachtig fel van kleur is en er zo mooier uitspringt
