A good reason to celebrate!

Hello all!
I'm hoping this scheduled post will go out on time as I'm not actually here today!  All being well, we are looking at an early start and waiting for the gates to open at the Hershey Fall Meet 2012  - a combination car show and giant flea market with 9000 spaces, no that isn't a typo, I do mean 9000 flea market spaces!!!  I don't think we have a hope of getting round everything as there are also 1500 classic cars on show.  This event was tailor made for us as we are both huge classic car fans and we love junking - what more could we ask for?

                     Anyway, on to the card which is for today's challenge at The Outlawz (Copics/Promarkers group).  The theme is National Desserts day which is on October 14th - I can't think of a better reason to have a national day :) 
         I inked up a Whipper Snapper stamp for this and actually made the card with my niece in mind  - she'll be 2 in November - which is why the card is very girly :)  I'm just going to add a glittery "2" to it before I mail it.

I would like to put this in for the following challenges -

Thanks for popping in!

Your card is so sweet Dawn. Oh I hope you have some good walking shoes on today. Have a great time. I bet you find something you will dress up to a masterpiece with your cameo.

Beautiful card. I love WS images and this is one of my fav's. Love the design you've used and as always your beautiful coloring.

Too cute! That little mousie is adorable. She'll love this card. We have Cruisin' on the Coast going on right now and I think they said they have 6000 cruisers registered this year. Everywhere you go there are classic cars driving around. Hope you enjoy your outing and find some cool stuff. I bet we'll be seeing some cool new altered piece from you soon. :-) Hugs!
