Three times lucky...

So I am super excited today, Hubby and I are off to our first live Basketball game since we moved to NYC...can't wait and we have great seats :)

As I am loving a challenge right now I thought I would enter 3 challenges with my card today...

Daring Cardmakers - Birthday Bunting and Banners

Stamping for the weekend - Anything Goes

I combined the sketch from RS with the Daring Cardmakers theme..I love the little bit of bunting around the beach hut and reminds me of a birthday party that was thrown for me when I was at Uni..The sentiment makes me want to open the card, which is always a nice touch.

Following on from yesterday's post about my obsession I have used another one of the Pink Petticoat Beach Cottage images :) Coloured with Promarkers and glitter glue. The orange paper is by Michaels, I used a Martha Stewart loopy border punch to create the border and the Heart paper is by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts and I used a Candi, to embellish the tag.

Love this card, I am thinking it might go in the growing pile of 40 for 40 :)

I'm also very pleased with my photo, as it was taken late at night using my new photo tent - thanks Hubby!

Have a great day.



  1. Oh that is a very lovely card indeed. Such a happy colour combination and I love the heart paper down the side. Fab!
    Thanks for playing along with our bunting and banners dare! :)

  2. Love that loopy punch - that rarely gets an airing and it should get used more often. That heart paper is adorable, I need to find me something like that on our Black Friday adventures :)

    1. OMG OMG Black Friday adventures :) I am saving...Yes you are quite right the loopy punch should be used more...I will take note.

  3. Super cute card! I am loving that cute little house and the tiny heart paper :) Great take on this week's sketch! - Katie :)

  4. Fab card! I love the cheerful colour combo. Thank you for playing along with the Daring Cardmakers this week!
