Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  I hope you're all having a great week.  I had a super fantabulous day yesterday.  Yes, it was my birthday (ssshh) and I had a lovely day off from work.  I did have to go to the DMV first thing to renew my tags and surprise surprise, I was in and out in 10 minutes.  I then came home and created my card to share with you today.  And then after that I took the kids bowling.  We had a blast!  After all that, I did colored up some images for this month's challenges for Delightful Challenges and had a great time and then wrapped up the day with a lovely dinner out with the kids and my Mom.  Good times!!

Oh, and I did receive a really fun birthday present from my sisters.  I got chocolate martini mix, vodka, a martini shaker and super cute polka dot martini glasses.  Really fun gift!  I am a very happy girl.

OK - here's something that made me very happy, too.  This week's challenge at Delightful Challenges is...

Fabric, Fiber and Trim

My card features fabric and trim (ribbon)....

I went to Joann's last weekend with one idea in mind.  I was thinking with this challenge that I would get an iron-on transfer to print the digi out and then putting it on a little tote bag.  Well, I never found the little tote bag but Hollyanne spotted this really fun fat quarter on sale for $0.99 that I could use as background paper.  I love the results.  I did use the sketch from Mojo Monday which worked perfectly.

I hope you join us this week at the Delightful Challenges blog to play along.  Enjoy your day!

Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday! Love this cute card, and the fabric looks beautiful. I need to try that sometime. The texture of fabric vs paper really makes a difference.
