Joy - Filled Stockings

Hi,

We had a fabby weekend up until 6pm yesterday (but more about that in a minute) - i did my class at The Glitter Pot and we made 2 Dotty cards and i learnt a new ribbon idea too, OH took son swimming and he swam underwater on his own and 4 widths on his back with a woggle (and he hates going on his back too), then yesterday we took Whisper for a 1 and 1/2 hour walk round the river bank and in the afternoon we met up with 1 of son's friends to go round a lake on his new scooter - then at 6pm son decided to put Daddys mobile phone that he got 1 month ago into a glass of juice and if phone company can't help him out or he can't claim on the insurance, then it's going to cost £400 to buy a new one - to say OH was less than impressed would be putting it mildly !!!!

Right todays card - i have used an stamp that i've had for about a year, but which is a such a cutie and i also had a rumage and found an old Sizzlits die, that i've had for about 2 years and don't think i've ever used !!! i bought the papers in The Glitter Pot sale on Boxing Day, but was a little disappointed, as when i went in there Saturday they had reduced them again - oh well i guess that's how the cookie crumbles, some you win and some you loose !!!

Right on to the Card and Challenges :

Pile It On Challenge  - where Challenge No: 3 is 'Anything Goes'

Dare To Be Sassy  - where Challenge No: 55 is 'New Years Resolution / Using It Up' - my die is 2 years old and the ribbon about the same !!

Gorgeous card! Love the bright papers and the 3-d image x
Try putting the phone in a bowl of rice!! We recently had a huge water leak and hubby's phones were soaked, a phone shop suggested this to dry it out slowly and it worked :)
Fingers crossed for you!
