ATSM #111 - Anything Goes {Just for you Mrs P Ugly Bum Marie}

Good morning everyone! Today is the start of a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More! where we have an Anything Goes challenge but with an optional twist.

We are having a special linky party for my very, very, very good friend, Marie from baileyrosy

Marie had the good fortune to meet me when I was in Spain. Oh! Did I just say that?? I meant to say that I had the good fortune to have Marie fly from Greece especially for me when I was in Spain ;) We had an AMAZING time while staying with Florence and Freddie and made memories we will certainly never forget.

Now, Marie has been quite under the weather lately and still has a ways to go. 

Thanks to the amazing Darnell from djkardkreations for emailing me and talking about Marie behind her back... we love doing that! We colluded and colluded and decided that a special Get Well/Thinking of You party was required for Marie.

If you know Marie (or even if you don't) and would like to play along, just pop on over to ATSM and link up your project this week.

Here is my card

I have used heaps of goodies from Inspired by Stamping for this one.

I used two of the dies to create a frame for my shaker card. 

(Who knew I had purple sequins?? I didn't! Guess I know now lol)

Mwah! There are go, ugly bum Marie. I hope you like and have fun seeing all the cards that are especially for you over at ATSM!

Thanks so much for looking xx

  11. Beautiful card Kylie. Love the bright sequins ... fabulous for a shaker card! Marie will have fun with this. Loll xx

  12. Sniff,sob,sniff,sob, I can't stop crying !!!!! just got back from my summer house where I have been in hiding the past week of course the weather was rubbish so I had no internet and then I saw this !!!!!! Oh Kylie I'm so so touched I can't stop bawling, every time I go to write something the tears blind me. I was in such a bad place this week this couldn't have come at a better time . Im so glad you and Darnell have been talking behind my back. I will never forget you're kindness and sensitivity especially as I haven't been a team player for such a long time. Your card is amazing and I love those sequins and the beautiful bold stripes Sandie was right who doesn't love a shaker card.


  13. Such a beautiful shaker card, Kylie! I love the pop of color inside the aperture and that you chose patterned paper and a doily! Such a lovely sentiment, too!
    I see that Marie is really 'touched' by your thoughtfulness...and that's what it's all about, right? I think you and Darnell did a great job on this project, and I can't wait to play along!

  14. A brilliant card! I'm sure it will cheer Marie up!
