Stamptacular Sunday Build-a-Card Blog Hop.


Phew, SSC promised a fun event today & they certainly delivered with a capital F U N! A big Thank You to Priscilla & her amazing DT for organising such a great challenge. Basically it was a blog hop to build a card adding elements as you went from each blog you visited. I have to admit I nearly gave up at the second hurdle as the element was to add an oval. I do not have any shape cutters that will do an oval & have you any idea how hard it is to find something ovular of the right size to draw around? Eventually I used the jug I use to fill my iron!! After this hiccup though, there was no stopping me & I believe I have incorporated all the requirements to enter my card into the challenge. It has in all honesty been quite a strain on the old grey matter to get it done so quickly. I usually complete a card over a couple of evenings at a quite leisurely pace. But I've really beavered away tonight to meet the deadline, & have to say I'm pleased with the result. You'll have to believe me though, when I tell you the card looks better in real life. I did not start till relatively late & missed the daylight to take my photo. Well it's my bedtime now, so better go. Hope you've all had a great weekend. I'll be off to the post office in the morning as I have some packages to send, wink, wink, nudge, nudge!
Regards,
Andie xx

Hey there girl! Such lovely papers! I saw this challenge and thought it looked fun. Yours came out fantastic! I can't believe you don't have ovals!!! What!!! I really like the coluzzle ovals, no big machine to work with and fairly inexpensive. You have to get both sizes though because of the bordering. Have a wonderful day pen pal, chat with ya soon! Hugs, Dena
