I'd give up cupcakes but I'm no quitter!

Hello all!
     Back with my usual Friday posting for the Alcohol Markers DT over at The Outlawz and this week our theme is 'Something Sweet'.   You can interpret this theme however you choose but you must, must, must use alcohol markers as the main medium for your card as that's just the kind of group we are!!
             This month we are fortunate to be sponsored by Elisabeth Bell , the digital collection and the lucky, random winner for March will receive 2 digis, which you can preview on our challenge page.

             I've been sorting out the hoarder's delight that is my craft room this week, in preparation for our big move and I think I may have packed up my mojo as I really struggled to come up with anything I liked!  Do you ever get like that with a card?  I can't put my finger on it - it's a perfectly nice card but I'm just a bit 'meh' about it.......  The fab digi is from Bugaboo, coloured with Copics and I used my Cameo to cut the mats, adding a stamped sentiment, a chipboard heart and some gems.



           Entering this into the challenges at Addicted to Stamps and More ,  Aud Sentiments ,  C.R.A.F.T ,  Creative Knockouts ,  Crafty Creations and Through the Craftroom Door.

                                        Thanks for stopping by today!  Please do take some time to check out the fabulous creations from my team-mates - Linda , Penny , Kathi and Carla .

Such a fun, cute card! I love your image and that sentiment. Thank you for joining us at ATSM.

Penny said...

Yes, Dawn, I do feel that way about some of my cards. But you have no reason to feel badly about this one--it is just darling! The image and sentiment crack me up; love your coloring, as always! Great design, love the DP, and your die cuts & bling! (Maybe that's what you don't like--it isn't CAS, lol!)
Hugs, Penny
Have a great weekend!

Haha, that is so true and one thing all women agree on, birthday calories do NOT count!! Of course, it's no fair that she can eat cupcakes like that and have that teeny waistline! A really fun card for ATSM, Dawn!! Hugs, Darnell

Terrific card and very funny sentiment - if only it were true! I totally get what you are saying about struggling to like what you make sometimes - but I'm sure glad you shared this card with us at ATS&M this week because I think it's great!
