No card today but I do have some exciting news to share - I am joining the wonderful TIME OUT design team.
TIME OUT is one of my favourite challenges - they do great challenges and have an amazing design team who have a diverse variety of styles. I was completely thrilled when Sandie and Nonnie asked me to join them - of course I said yes without a second thought.
Looing Looking forward to posting my first DT card with TIME OUT on Thursday! Hope to seeyou there!
Thanks for stopping by!

For some reason, I always think of my brother when I see garden gnomes (he has one in his garden) so this Studio Calico stamp set was absolutely perfect for the occasion. I stamped it three times across the top of the card, and coloured them with Copics. For the bottom of the card, I stamped Hero Arts Newspaper Background in SSS Smoke Ink before die cutting some "40"s using Lawn Fawn numbers dies. I added some fun foam behind the numbers before inlaying it all back together. The greeting is from Kelly Purkey's Happy Birthday set - it was white heat embossed on a strip of SSS Fog cardstock. Fishing touches were some Wink of Stella and a double coat of Glossy Accents on the gnome hats and a single coat on their belt buckles.
I will link this card up to a few places:
- Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating 200 posts this week!
- The Male Room for cards using newsprint
- CAS-Ology where the cue word is numbers

For this challenge, I decided to focus on one of my favourite summer foods(!?) - margaritas! I always keep bottles of tequila and Cointreau in the freezer - "just in case"!
I started off with the greeting from Unity Stamp Company, and then masked on top with post it tape. I then did lots of stamping and making with the lime wedge stamp from the SSS Adult Beverages set. I coloured with Copics and then die cut the banner using a MFT die. For the background, I used some white embossing paste with a Dylusions stencil - I added some Rock Candy Distress Glitter to it when it was still wet. I was trying to create the idea of salt around the top of a margarita glass... Finishing touch was a few sequins...
This card will definitely mailed to a friend a former colleague of mine in Montreal who shares my love of this particular drink!
I will link this card up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes this week.
As a final note, life at AAA Cards has been very busy over the last few week, and there have been a few changes in the DT. Unfortunately, a few of our team decided to step down ; it was hard to say goodbye to Victoria, Linda, and Kimberly but that does open up a few spaces for new members to join in. If you are interested, I highly encourage you to write DT next to your name on your card submission.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
