The papers are freebie ones from this months Crafts Beautiful, those were on my desk and already co-ordinated (tip #1 for quick cards find papers that are already co-ordinated!) the card size was dictated by a pink envelope I had that went with the paper. I tore out two squares of the papers, layered them up and cut the happy birthday bit out of another of the papers and used it as a greeting/boardery bit. The embellie is made from a plastic flower I had on my desk hanging around and I just added the glitter Thickers, those I'd just got through the post so those were hanging around my desk too. The buttons are out of my button sweetie jar, I just fished out ones that went with the papers. Glued it all together, bit of doodling around the edges and it's done! The slowest bit was getting those glitter Thickers off the sheet , I've not had those ones before they're a nightmare! It's annoying because the foam ones are a dream to use so I was assuming these would be the same but nope.
So anyway there we go super quick card. And like I said my top tip is defo find papers that match already and stick with them for picking out your embellies and you can't go wrong. :-)

OK here goes.......
The "rules" of the game: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
Ten years ago:
I would have been at school and doing my A-levels! I did fashion design, fine art and history. I suppose I would have been doing some kind of mock exams this time of year,yep, I vaguely remember the world cup being on and an England game going on in the common room underneath where we were doing a mock history exam so yep would have been doing that. :-D
Five things in today's 'to do list':
1. Edit website 2. Get food shopping 3. do some card samples and photos 4. Message back my bro about hair cutting 5. Find out why Sky TV stopped working Project cat walk is on tonight! - nightmare. :(
Snacks I enjoy:
Anything! Ice-cream/frozen yogurt is a biggy, I love Ben&Jerry's! The yogurt one that tastes like cheesecake is mega yum!
Things I would do if I was a millionaire:
That's easy, I'd pay my debts off, spend a bit of it on craft goodies and give some to mum and dad for everything they've given me over the years and then give the rest away to the CPL. I wouldn't want to be a millionaire for long!
Places I have lived:
I'd love to say I've lived in loads of cool places but I've lived in the same place for pretty much all my life, in a village in the north of England that was founded by the Vikings and it's still got it's Viking name as far as I'm aware.
I need to tag some other people now so I'll do...
Deb, Lou, Enjay, Kathy and Pat.
