Fashionably Late to the Party!

OOOH I'm SO late to the party, Crafty Secrets should be giving me demerit points! AAAACK! I'm blaming this one on the bad party girls that camped out at my house this weekend and dragged me kicking and screaming (NOT) to Grand Old Day in St Paul for live music and AHEM, merriment. It's certainly what inspired these three cards tonite. The Crafty Secrets design team challenge this week was to create BIRTHDAY cards. I pulled my Crafty Secrets "Glamour Girls" stamp set, specifically for the cool martini glass in it! I paired the martini stamp up with some fun vintage images from Crafty's "Girlfriends" creative scraps.


For this card I HAD to use this funky purple paisley paper, and cut out a circle with my Nestabilities dies. I just got my large round pinking nestability dies in the mail from Spellbinders, and HAD to use it to mat my paisley paper!


I LOVE this little housewife chickie, kicking up her heels and sipping on a green martini! (We didn't have any green martini's this weekend, thankfully.)
The talented design team chickies have outdone themselves on this challenge, so be sure to check out all their EYE candy on the links below! Anna is having a gift certificate drawing too, so you're gonna want to ENTER!
