29 Again! OSAAT #259

Good morning friends.  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Mine - quiet, but that's good. I'm just about over whatever it is I had last week. Still dealing with the arm. I don't know if you have this in your area, but last year I joined Instacart. They work with a few different retail stores such as HEB, Whole Foods, Costco, Petco, and some others where you can shop online and someone will do your shopping and then deliver the items to your home. Yes, it does cost, but in the time that I've been a member, I've had enough occasions to use their services and it's more than paid for itself. I've had about 99% good luck with the service. I don't use it all the time, but for times like these with the broken arm, days you don't feel well, the weather's bad, it's great not to have to go to the store.

Anyway, I'm just a little late getting my card posted.  I was dealing with a noisy neighbor who was having a wild party in their back yard. They were finally told about 9:30 to turn the noise level down which they did. So, here's my card for this fortnight's challenge over at One Stitch at a Time where the theme is Anything Goes With Distressing!

Materials Used:
  • Image - Stitchy Stamps - Birthday Girl
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up 
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Summer Starfruit; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Ink - Tuxedo Memento Black; Tim Holtz - Distress Ink, Wild Honey
  • Designer Paper - Stitchy Stamps - Grungy Girl from Panda Bear Designs
  • Accessories - Bling and Violet Flower - Recollections; Yellow flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts; Spellbinders - Classic Oval Die and Lacy Oval Die; Distressing Tool
  • Copic Markers - E23, E25, E27; E50, E51, E53; V01, V04, V06; Y06, Y15, Y18, Y28
Now, it's your turn.  I hope you'll come join in the fun. Our sponsor as usual is Stitchy Stamps and they are providing a $10 Gift Certificate for one lucky winner.  You could also be named as one of the Top 3, so I hope I see you over there.
