Party Hearty and Ice Cream Parlour Fun

Good Morning! Well, its certainly been a busy week for us around here. I've had a few nasty migraines, which has kept me from doing anything exciting, but that's the way it goes I guess. At least there are some good meds out there for migraines, helps a person get through the day!!  :) 

We are experiencing more cold weather (again!) although its supposed to warm right up again in a few days.  At least the sun is shining today, its been quite gloomy this week.  I can handle the cold quite fine if the sun is shining!

Anyways, you didn't come here to hear me contemplate the weather now did you? :)

This card was alot of fun to make. Its a hybrid card!! Just love My Digital Studio Program, there are so many possibilities within. I know I say that over and over again, but I have enjoyed this program even more than I expected.

The Birthday greetings and stamp are MDS Party Hearty, the dsp is the Ice Cream Parlour (wow, don't you just love the gorgeous bright colours in this collection?? its so yummy, if I can use that word to describe paper!) 

Cardstock is as follows: Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Pacific Point.  The embellishments I used are: the Photo Corner punch, Oval Punches, nesties for the matted image, a Glimmer Brad (you're going to love these Melody!!!!) along with the beautiful new seam binding. I just love this ribbon, its so easy to pull and gather, as I did in the card above. Its so soft and really pliable, very easy to work with if you are at all challenged in the bow tieing department! :)

I also just noticed that the dry weather is effecting my cardstock, as you will notice in the picture above that the cardstock is a bit rough along the folded card edge.  That's an easy fix, if you experience this: just take your block sander and run it along the edge a couple of times (gently of course!) and you'll be able to "sand" the roughness away.  We have a humidifier on our furnace but no matter what, Alberta is pretty dry in the winter, even with all the snow we've had!!

Well, thanks for dropping by and be sure to check back tomorrow, I'm working on another hybrid birthday card, along with some sweet Hedgie images.

Have a great Thursday!
Deb :)

Great job Deb, love the colors.. Sorry about your migraine, I suffer from them as well. So I honestly know what you are going through.. Have had a headache for the last two days, one of the ones that are just there and won't go aWay...
