MAWTT - Only Girls Allowed

Hello! it's time for another challenge over at 
Moving Along With the Times
This week the lovely Pami is our hostess and she has chosen the fab theme of .....

'Only Girls Allowed'

So we want to see creations with girls... so lots of scope.. I think this will be a very popular theme! I have gone retro with this cute little lady... and I made a Congrats Card for my daughter who has just got her first full time job!! Woo Hoo!! I'm so pleased for her...  she has been trying for a while to find is really hard nowadays.. as so many applicants.... this will be a big step on the employment ladder!

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Kenny K...

and this week's lucky winner will receive 3 digi images from in-store!!! how cool is that!  

and we were kindly given some fab images to work with....

I chose Happy Hour Digi Stamp - isn't she gorgeous! she would be fab for lots of occasions...

It's a very simple layout... I'm really into embossing at the moment and loving making cards without papers... which is not good considering how many pads I have!!! LOL ... I have just bought a load of embossing folders that were in sale!! so I will soon have some new ones to play with when they arrive ... I bet you will be getting fed up with this Mesh one... I do love it though... it gives 2 great effects depending on which side you use!! Open-mouth smile

I'm not usually one for buttons as embellies but this one seemed to look perfect in centre of flower.. I've added some glittery twine from stash.. Sentiment was made on computer...

Card - Coredinations
Brown Mount: Bigz Die - Ornamental Tim Holtz
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug - Mesh
Flower: Embosslits Die - Wild Flower

I've coloured the gorgeous  Happy Hour Digi Stamp with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and added Star Dust Stickles to the spots on her dress and also to her glass of bubbly!

Don't forget to pop on over to MAWTT for more details of this week's Challenge and to see my Teamies gorgeous creations!

I'm scheduling this Wednesday evening...  hope I have done everything correctly... I'm in a lot of pain today with my spine... I threw my duvet off in the night (hot flush LOL) ... and must have got cold... as it hurts SO bad today... I've even fitted in an extra dose of painkillers but they only take edge off... ah well... I'm going to lie flat and read my Kindle.... hopefully I will feel better tomorrow... think I will sleep with my jumper on tonight though... won't be able to throw that off so easily when I am asleep ... hee hee!! Winking smile
Love and hugs

Stunning image and card Sue! I'll have to get that to make my cousin's birthday card as it's just the sort of thing she loves.

Congrats to your daughter! I feel so sorry for young ones trying to find work. My son graduated two years ago and all he can get is part-time temporary jobs. How do you plan your future like that!
