January Card Challenge

My friend Phillane wanted to us to do a monthly card challenge.
What we do is every month, we are going to come up with about 5 things we should do on a card and then mail each other our cards that we had made.

For January:
File Folder Card
CC Design image to colour
Use Sparkle
Use our stash.
It is Phillane's Birthday this month, so I made mine into a Birthday card for her.

As you can see I have followed our challenge prompts to a tee…I am a stickler for the rules ;)

Here is this little cutie in a bit more detail :)
Look I even added lace to mimic snow…I hardly ever use lace on my paper crafts.

I made a video if you want to hear more about our challenge and see this card in more detail :)
I still can't get my videos in screen, so here is the link to my YouTube channel.
Tracy's Treasures 24

Today I told Wayne that he should have is Black & Tan that he has once a year.
He usually has it on New Years, but because he was so sick, he never got to have it.
So as he enjoyed his drink, I enjoyed mine….a frosty glass of Coca-Cola :)
This can of coke was in the back of the fridge for a whole week and it was partly frozen ;)
Wayne was so looking forward to his drink, he couldn't wait for the photo shoot to be complete before grabbing his drink, lol.

Just in case you are wondering, Black & Tan is Harp Ale and Guinness beer. The reason for the name, is when you slowly pour the darker beer in, if you are good, it will float on the lighter coloured beer.

I spent the day doing a bit of writing and organizing my flair buttons :) I will share that in another post though.
I hope you all had a creative Sunday :)
If you want to join me with these card challenges, I would love to see what you come up with :)
