One In A Million

 Before I start with my card I just want to say how proud I am of my granddaughter Amber.  For her exam results this week she got:

1 A* (A star is top marks) … 4 A’s  and  4 B’s

Can you guess what she got the A star in … yep her … ART    yayyyyy … How cool is that and she actually rang me to say thank you for all the help I have given her over the years … awwww!!!!

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a terrific theme of  “A Birthday Card For Someone Special” which was picked by our wonderful DT sister Dot.

That’s a stroke of luck I managed to combine yesterdays class card with todays challenge at FSC.  When the girls arrived for the class you could hear the sighs of relief that there was no distressing or inking just lots of yummy stamping and masking.  They do love making kinetic style cards so I combined both for them.  We had a real scrummy day – well I say day it is actually only a 2 hour class but by the time we have had coffee and cake it is more like three hours.

Showed the girls how to make a tag card which was made by using the new Stampin Up tag punch and only one sheet of A4 card.  If you haven’t seen this punch already then you don’t know what you’re missing.

None of that ole malarkey of having to join four tags together, you can make the four tags from one sheet of cardstock.

Nothing was wasted from the A4 sheet.  With the left over slither I even managed to make a band to go around the card.  When shut the card folds flat for posting.

Most of the stamps used are from Stampin Up but the little girl images are from Crafty Individuals.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.
