OCC Amy you are still hot!!!


Hey you all!!! Sorry I've been so quiet - this crazy weather here in the South has really been kicking my butt!!!

Today I feel normal again and of course I've been trying to catch up on housework, entertaining my girls and the dog...etc.

Couldn't stay away from the computer and blogs either...and as you all know the *OCC Girls* always have something fun up their sleeves...and when I saw today's challenge I couldn't resist to play along!!!

Well - Amy is turning the big *4-0* this coming week - WAHHHOOO!!! - and she is hosting this months challenges!!!

I've been a huge fan of Amy's - she started blogging right before I did. Not only was she an awesome stamper back then...oh no she has blown me away with all of her stunning creations over the last couple of months!!!

Plus I'm so flippin' excited that she became a *Dirty Girl* and I get to spent some time with her on the *Our Daily Bread Designs* Team....even though it's only a short time.....make a long story short - SHE TOTALLY ROCKS!!!

Back to the card - in order to keep Amy smiling on her journey to the big *4-0* we had to make a humorous card....and I thought I'd use my super duper fun *Still Hot Granny* Set from *Little Paper Shop*. (Here is another card I made with this Set.)

I used Whisper White, So Saffron and Basic Black for this card and colored it with Prisma Markers (PM132 Jasmin, PM211 Jet Black) and the Colorless Blender Pen. I added some Dazzling Diamond Glitter to the image. The Black Satin Ribbon is from Walmart and the Black Medium Brads are from Making Memories.

I also scored my base card every 1/2 inches - just to add a bit more interest.....!!!

Hope you will find time to play along and celebrate Amy's birthday?!? Watch out I'm right behind her.... as I'm celebrating my way to the big *4-0* next month!!! Hope you will stop by and celebrate with me too....until then!!!
