So that's pretty much why I've been out of blogland for the last 8 days. The next couple of months are shaping up to be in-and-out too...up next is grandma's drive to Madison to watch kidlets when the new baby is born! Grandchild coming by this time next month. I'm hoping for the 15th. My son, this sweet little family's daddy, was born the day before my dad's birthday, and I thought it would be nice to carry on that tradition by having this baby born the day before mine! One can always hope. After the new baby comes, we will be having visitors from Phoenix; Dauphin,Manitoba (hmmmm....I wonder who....??!!); and Minneapolis. It will be a blast!
And before I get too long winded, and bore you all to tears (or is it already too late to say that?), I'll get down to business. Now you all know I'm sure, that Neat & Tangled is celebrating their first birthday, right? Well, it's been one whole month of nothing but fun over there. Pop over and see for yourself! And I decided to join in once more, and play along with their "Let's Eat Cake!" challenge. They've offered a couple of free digis which I used on my card. Come on and play along!
I started with a Bazzill base, and used my new Wplus9 dies to cut a circle out then backed it with a scrap of aqua which had been run through my Big Shot using a LC embossing folder (that was a NBUS, Darnell!). I printed out the sentiment and cake on pink, yellow and white scraps, and then used MFT flag dies on the sentiments. The cake was done with a bit of paper piecing using the white, and some dp scraps. The flower is from HL, and the "glow" above the candle, and sequins are all from N&T. They make the most luscious sequins....And that's it for now. Happy dances everyone!!
