Numbers are Fun, DCM extra


I stuck with the fun element for this one. Having been in a shop recently looking at cards, I noticed that once you get passed 16, the cards go serious. Yes you grow up, but we all still have a child inside!
so I thought at 21, you still want a fun design.
The 1 is on foam pads to raise it ever so slightly above the 2.
Today, is coloured square stickers I picked up somewhere, might be papermania & I adore them for adding colour. They work fabulously straight onto photos. I am using them in my Happy minibook which is a year long project.
The cake was a 3D sticker.
Papers were free with Scrapbook Inspirations a few issues ago & I thought they were quite good for quick cards.
I inked the card edges to give dimension.
I don't know about anyone else but I'd love a card like this instead of a boring "key to the door"!!!

Paula the latest cards are fab ... I've come to TAG you, you ROCK, but I see you've already been tagged!!! LOL !!! Doesn't matter, you doubly ROCK!!!

BTW, this weather can't be enjoyed, temps are up to 45*C in the shade. Walking outside is impossible, and after 10 minutes you feel like you can't breathe.

I just want today to be over, tomorrow it will be back in the normal temps ... ;)
