Clare Curd's quote challenge

Clare Curd's quote challenge
Originally uploaded by claire wright

Hello everyone!

Well, it's been a busy day today what with ballet lessons etc (my daughters' not mine!!), so I haven't got any cards made. Tonight we've got a babysitter and we're going out to dinner with some friends. Haven't done that for ages so I'm really looking forward to it!! We're going to a local restaurant in a converted church that serves tapas - sounds interesting!!

So, I'm cheating today and posting a card I made last week!!!!

This card was for one of Clare Curd's challenges over on DoCrafts. The challenge was to incorporate a quote in your card and I have to admit I struggled with this. I'm not one for putting loads of words on cards, Usually 'Happy Birthday' is about as far as I'll get!!

Anyway I searched the internet and came up with the following:

"We know we're getting older when the only thing we want for our Birthday is not to be reminded of it"!!

I thought that was quite a good quote. I'm starting to feel like that!!!

Products used on card:

Sugar Nellie stamp - Sweet 'n Sassy - isn't she just gorgeous!!
Coloured with brushmarkers and h2o's
Edges inked with Colourbox fluid chalk
Papers - Papermania
Ribbon - Anita's
Buttons - I think they were from a kids craft pack I bought from the Early Learning Centre!! Just goes to show you can get craft supplies anywhere!!!

Well, I hope you like my card. I'm off to give the girls a quick tea and get ready for my night out!!!

Bye for now,
Claire xx
