A Step Card - Finally!!


Why have I put the word "finally" into my post title??? Several weeks ago I commented on the wonderful step cards Debbie M over at Hubby's Headache had made - I told her she had inspired me to give them a go!! Well it's taken a bit of time, and an occasional reminder - LOL - but I have FINALLY done one!!! Let me tell you Debbie makes them looks super easy - check out her marvellous creations here.

I confess I struggled with this - I have had this bit of Very Vanilla CS cut and folded for some time! I ended up using the fabulous new release wheel stamp Neighborhood with the Loads of Love and it's accessory set. I've coloured using my SU markers and Blender Pen - not a favourite method of mine so I need the practise - LOL. The DP is from the fabulous Urban Oasis set.

I'm glad I have finally finished this challenge I set myself - but will there be more Step Cards from me??? Your guess is as good as mine - LOL.

Such a cute card Debbie!

Thanks for thinking of us, I think the holiday will be really good for me, I'm looking forward to relaxing and laughing with my boys, and catching up with some good friends who I haven't seen for over 6 years.

This is SOOOOO cool Debbie! I only made one of these types of cards and it was tough! I LOVE the stamps you used on this!! Great card!!

Yowser, this is great! I love the theme... very clever! You did an excellent job with the markers and blender pen. I find that tricky, too.

Hope you're feeling better!

Love ya,
