Two Birthday Cards and Fabulous NEWS

So I have two cards today ... and some news, but first my cards...and lucky me got both the digis for free.

For this card I got the stamp after Kellie, from Tickled Pink Stamps sent out an email this week to all her customers and offered a free digi to the first 50 who answered... woo hoo I was one of the girls who got the free digi and I chose this darling Birthday Cherrie stamp.

I coloured Cherrie with my promarkers, paper was a free gift in a magazine, sentiment from Hero Arts stamp set, Card Candy and flowers with my CREAlies die cut.
My challenges
- Tickled Pink 22 - ANYTHING GOES
- Birthday Sundaes 12 - ANYTHING GOES
- Craft Your Passion 61 - ANYTHING GOES

Stamp Something - JUNE DIGI DAY

And now I have a boy's birthday card. Last week or so I was one of the girls picked for the Top 3 at the CardmadFairy Challenge.. well lucky me again, I didn't know, but I had won a digi as well :)) I didn't take much to decide as when I saw this lovely stamp, Zac, I immediately thought of my youngest son Kevin, who, upon his request, is very happily learning the guitar. 

The fantastic papers that I used to do my card today were freebie ones from Bearly-Mine and I did the stars with my Die-Namics stars die...

... using some lovely shiny card which I had forgotten I had.

Quite a simple card, but I am sure he will like it. ... hoping that he will still be playing the guitar in October, that's when his birthday is ha ha am I finally not getting good preparing my cards SO EARLY :)

This is the sketch that I followed to do my card today
And these are my challenges
Bearly-Mine 12- ANYTHING GOES

Fussy and Fancy - FOR A MAN OR BOY
The Stamp Man 24- BOYS and MEN

And now MY NEWS ...... my exciting news ....  Remember me some time ago saying that I went to apply to be an Extra in Brad Pitt's newest film World War Z?  WELL ....... I GOT CHOSEN .. woo hooo hooo hooo squeal ....... I couldn't contain my excitement when I got the telephone call today and even now I still can't keep quiet with the excitement. I will be going for rehearsals tomorrow and then on Monday for the costume fitting!!! First time for me doing this, so I am really looking forward and we get paid too...  So tomorrow morning, when you see my Crafty Sentiment DT Card going online, I will be ......... rehearsing........  I wonder if I will be rehearsing for how to walk like a zombie     : )
