Faster than a speeding Beetle Challenge #114 at 613 Avenue Create

Oops, I have been babysitting our two daughters little baby girls, one overnight Saturday and then the two of them together Sunday. We had to drive up into the hills after church and drop the 11 month old off to her other grandfather and then bring the 51/2 month old back home to be collected. The older one has a cold and I have a cold and I didn't sleep well as I ended up putting her in with me because after an hour of her crying between midnight and 1 p.m. she finally dropped off but as soon as I put her in the cot she started up again and I was pretty tired by then. Luckily she slept all night but I slept badly because I was aware of her beside me and she is a bit of a wriggler so I didn't want her to manage to fall out of the bed.
I'm backdating this post because it should have already been posted and I completely forgot to do it. I went to bed early at 9 last night, woke at 11 p.m. when our son and DIL came home, drifted off again, was awake again at 3 and then that was it for me. I ended up sitting in the back room at 6 a.m. having coffee then back to bed again about 7 and woke at 9 a.m. It's a public holiday here and I've only just popped onto the computer and was surprised to find that I had not posted my card for the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create , so here I am furiously typing away to get up to date again.
We are an Anything Goes challenge with an optional twist - this challenge's twist is: Use the March Birthstone colour ~ Aquamarine in your creation.
Our sponsors are A Day For Daisies and Doodle Pantry

Here is my card using a Doodle Pantry image

I did colour an image myself and one of my Copic Markers decided to give up the ghost and I thought after I put it all together that is was a bit streaky. I went to the craft shop and had it refilled and came back home and thought I would just touch it up. Bad mistake!!!! I got over near the headlight and the blasted thing leaked all over it - yep another overfilled marker. I really need to save up and get some more refills of my own, I'm fed up with colouring something and getting to the last little bit and then ruining the lot. Does anyone else have that problem? The craft shop need to train their staff better so this doesn't happen!

SU Tempting Turquoise for the basecard and matte
SU Peach Parfait cardstock for the matte
DP is from Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad -
Image is from Doodle Pantry - Classic Bug & Gas Can (this comes with several pre-coloured images, line images,  a few of sentiments, several papers and a gas can - this is a pre-coloured image)
Sentiment is from the same set
Happy Birthday image is from SU
Punches - large oval and wide oval
Memento Black inkpad
D/S tape and Foam Dots

I am entering my card into the following challenges (back later with some)

  1. This is a fabulous male birthday card Sandy, great image and background.

  2. Super card Sandy. Love the image.

  3. Love your background DP and it is a great card for a male. I have had my copic blot. but only once, after that I try not to fill it as full!

  4. Fantastic the background paper. I have made a list of refills I need for my copics but that is as far as I have got. I have two colours and is handy to be able to use when I like.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate it and if you leave me with a link back to your blog I will pop on over and visit you too.
