Rockin' 50's

I had my eye on this image from Faery Ink for a while and finally got it after winning a challenge. 'Gabbie 50's Girl' just reminded me of Grease and the Pink Ladies and TV shows set in the 50's that I used to watch. 
I've been a bit naughty, after wanting to make all my DT cards for specific people this year, and not made this for anyone in particular. I just couldn't resist colouring up and making a card though, so I'm sure I'll find somebody to give it to eventually!
This is such a great scene, so I've made a very CAS square card and luckily had the same font Amanda used for the diner to create my sentiment. 

Products I have used to create my card:

  • Papermania Cardstock
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll
  • ProMarkers - Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Oatmeal, Saffron, Rose Pink, Raw Sienna, Mustard, Tulip, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Carmine, Baby Pink, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Cool Grey 1-5, Black, Arctic Blue, Powder Blue, Mulberry, Cerise, Pink Carnation, Warm Grey 2-5, Aegean & Cyan

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Brown Sugar - #243 AG
  2. CCC Digi Creations - #69 For The Girls
  3. Colour Crazy Craft Challenge - WK12 AG
  4. Crafty Creations - #337 AG
  5. Creative Fingers - #126 AG
  6. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - #54 AG
  7. Passion for ProMarkers - WK387 Girl Power
  8. Polkadoodles - WK12 AG
  9. The Corrosive Challenge - #3 AG

Friends Frame at Club KennyK

Our March challenge at Club KennyK is underway and this time the DT theme is 'Anything But A Card'. This really is a fun theme as you can get so creative with different ideas.  
To join in please hop over to Facebook and make sure you fully read and follow the rules. This is very important if you wish to be eligible for a prize and claim the challenge freebie. 

Today I am sharing a frame made using the fabulous freebie 'Texting Friends' and the following products:

  • Wooden frame & paper flowers from Michaels  
  • Ribbon & brads from my stash
  • Cell phone brad from Eyelet Outlet
  • Kaisercraft acrylic paint in Wisteria

I actually had printed and coloured the image before I bought a frame, so I was lucky to find this one as it fits perfectly! I painted it with two coats of acrylic before attaching the image and embellishments.  The little cell brads I bought on a shopping trip not for any specific project, but I knew I had to have them and it goes so well with this image.

A Sweet Sundae

Do you have a favourite ice-cream? Mine is mint chocolate chip. When I saw this cute Ice Cream Sundae Sprite from Aurora Wings I knew that's the flavour it had to be. I'm not really fancying ice-cream at the moment though as after most of the snow had gone, we woke up to a white-out this morning.
