Birthday card and a new challenge blog


I've taken a break from my dissertation to bring you this card. I'm entering into a new challenge at Stampin royalty where there is a birthday theme challenge. The card also fits Crazy 4 Challenges as their theme is birthday too. Finally it fits Polka Doodles song title theme - for which I have chosen the song "Happy Days" - remember with the Fonz -aaayh!

The border punch, stamp and sentiment are from SU - large flower from my stash with a die cut flower and brad over the top. Other flowers punched from the co-ordinating papers. Small flourish at the bottom is a rub-on from K&Co.
Only 13,000 words to go on the dissertation! But at least I have started it. It seemed so daunting but now I have put together the outline and started to work out what goes where I feel a tiny bit better. I need to get the draft of 15,000 words to my tutor by mid-Feb otherwise I will miss the deadline for graduating this October and have to wait til 2011!!! Glad to have blogs to visit to give me a bit of a break inbetween - trouble is 5 mins leads to................!
