International Card Making Day

Today has been a busy one for me as its my little boys birthday next Wednesday so we have been busy all morning and afternoon preparing and having a family party for him.  However as it's International Card Making Day, and I haven't made a card for ages, I thought I would grab the opportunity to make a quick card this morning whilst he and his Dad went into town to get the free lego in the paper (which turns out isn't today at all! oh well).  Here is the card I have made for my OH's sister whose birthday is next week too:

I used up some Basic Grey Lime Rickey bits and pieces, a piece of washi tape (finally - whoo hoo!), Spiced Marmalade distress ink and a Whimsy Stamp for the greeting.

Even though its only a really clean, quick and simple card it still took me over an hour!  Hopefully I will get a chance to play a bit later and make DS2 his birthday card too!

This card is based on the sketch over at so I would like to enter it into their challenge and also I have spotted three other challenges specific to International Card Making Day so I would like to enter it into those too:, and

Thanks for looking - Party Girl from Solihull

Wonderful card. So lovely design. I like the colors and love the CAS style design like Plastic cards which make the card POP. Thanks for sharing.
