Can You Case It #113 Colour Challenge - Pedal Pusher

Wow what an exciting week we've had!! I'm currently celebrating my birthday by crafting in the Closet, while hubby and the kids cook roast lamb for tea... Yum my favourite!!

So while they are busy at work, I thought I would share my latest design for the Can You Case It team. This week we have a colour challenge for you all!!

Now, these colour make me think masculine card and that's kind of where I went with my design, but I just had to use the Pedal Pushers stamp set, as I'm super sad that it will only be available for 4 more days:

Is it me, or does it look like the bike is flying in the sky, a bit Mary Poppins-ish?!? I really loved how this card came out and just couldn't help but make it again but change up the colours slightly

So all I did was changed the Basic Gray to Early Espresso, the silver Glimmer for gold and the Balloons are Rose Red and Blushing Bride, rather them Soft Suade and Night of Navy.

I adore this new "girly" version, but not sure which one I like best. How about you??

So because it's still technically my Birthday, I've decide I will also throw in one of these cards in to the pack of the other birthday cards that I'm giveaway for my Birthday Giveaway. So now there will be 8 cards up for grabs!!

And you still have time to enter too, just place a $90 (plus postage) order using my hostess code: QDBFNAE6 and you'll go into the draw to win all 8 cards, plus choose a sale-a-bration item and I'm also adding a little something from the Occasions catalogue too.

And while you are shopping in my store, why not pop over to the CYCI blog and take a look at what the other Design Team members have come up with for the challenge!1

Hooray for Birthday Week: Day 7 - Botanical Builder

Yippeee, we made it to day 7 and today is my Birthday!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much for all the blog love that you guys have shown me this week. It's made this week extra special!!

Today's card I actually made for myself. Now I know this sounds a little weird, because who actually make's cards for themselves, but it all started after a conversation I had with the hubby the other day.

We were in the car talking about my birthday coming up, when I suddenly couldn't work out how old I was going to be. After doing some very poor maths, I suddenly realised that I had told everybody I had turned 35 last year, when in fact I'm 35 this year?!?!? And so I had to make a card using this sentiment:

Of course if I am making a card for myself I'm going to use all my favorite colours too and so I picked out all the beautiful mints and aquas in our ink collections.

I was really pleased with how I got the two tone look on my numbers. I had tried inking straight from the pads, but the look was way too heavy and wet, so I decided to get out my trusty finger daubers and I sponged the colours directly onto the numbers and then stamped them.

Wow, that's it! a whole week of Birthday cards all finished and are now waiting for their new owner. Who is that lucky person who gets to keep all these cards, I hear you say. Well it honestly could be YOU!!

There is still time to enter my Birthday Giveaway and earn yourself some freebies to boot. Place a $90 (plus postage) order using my hostess code: QDBFNAE6 and you will go into the draw to win all 7 cards that I have blogged this week, plus because it is still Sale-a-Bration, you order entitles you to an item from the sale-a-bration catalogue. Also, to celebrate my birthday I'm sending out a little extra something from the Occasions Catalogue to you as a little gift.

But don't wait too long to place you order as this special is only on until tonight!! So be quick guys and get shopping!!

Hooray for Birthday Week: Day 6 - Little Letter Thinlits

Hooray for day 6 of my Birthday fun week. Today's post is just a quick one as my crazy crew had spent the whole day out fishing yesterday and so today the house needs a little bit of loving. Oh and after a week of card creating, I can't even begin to explain what state my craft room or The Closet as we call it, is in.

So for day 6 I have something that is super quick and easy to make using the Little Letter thinlits, which I hadn't used for a while:

It's funny how you use a certain item or stamp set over and over, until something shiny and new comes along and then it gets forgotten about. Well that's kinda what happened to these awesome little thinlits. I forgot how much fun they are.

With this card, I drew three lines with a pencil and then used my magnetic platform to line up the letters to spell HAPPY. It looks tricky (and would probably have been easier if I had an extra 'P') but it really wasn't too hard. I got them all done on my first attempt.

I used my aqua painter to water colour a piece of Shimmery White which I then stuck underneath. Finished with a sentiment and a little bling and that was it.

So tomorrow is my Grand Finale!! my last card from the Birthday Week will be posted and by tomorrow night the winner of all 7 cards will also be revealed. But there is still time for you to get your entry in for the card draw plus get a little extra something in your order. Just remember to place a $90 (plus postage) order using my Hostess Code: QDBFNAE6. You have got to be in it to win it!!

Happy Crafting,
