Round and Round

Next week it is my son's 17th birthday and in the uk that is the age when they can take driving lessons, and that is all he speaks about just now who we can book for his lessons! so have been wracking my brain to think of a card for him and so went looking at my favourite challenges to seek inspiration and found it on the Less is More site with their challenge ROUND and ROUND and I shamelessly CASed both of Chrissies ...they do say that copying is the highest form of praise remember Chrissie :-) and I totally agree and thanks for the picture tutorial  for a spinner card ...though mine is more a slider card!, which I managed  no bother (well when I unstuck my fingers from the tape that is ) Did originally think of a car then realised it would roll sideways so went with the SU motorbike instead, and  computer generated the sentiment to make it  a bit more personal.
Now off to seek inspiration for a get well card for a friend who is in hospital just now.....
p.s was updating  the blog when I noticed that for some reason blogger has decided to add a pink cast to my card ! Honest the real card and the original post don't have it ...ah the wonder of blogger!!

Dessert and tags

When I saw this weeks cue card for CAS.ology the first thought was dessert cocktails!!
Not an obvious choice I must admit but when we were in Glasgow not long ago on the menu for the desserts were dessert cocktails , so we just  had to give it a go and went for the raspberry cheesecake and all I can remember was it included a raspberry liquer called chambord as one of the ingredients.  When it came it was in  a glass just like the one on the card with cream floating on the top (how do they do that??) and it was delicious....just wish I had taken a photograph at the time.
My card is made with with a die and stamp set that I bought a wee  while ago and for now the name escapes me...sorry (and of course to save space have added it to another set so no longer have the packaging!) Decided to stamp the bottom layer in black and then to stamp the tag (which is the from the same set ) in Melon Mambo and align it so the words match ...which was remarkably easier than I thought it was going to be ,and popped the cocktail glass up on dimensionals .
It will also be perfect for the challenge over at the Friday Mashup as the challenge there, is to add a tag to your project,as too is the current challenge over at CASon Sunday (Tag it)
Thank you so much for taking the time to look x
