It's only a number ......

Happy Friday 13th folks ........

Are you superstitious? ..... fingers crossed, touch wood and all that.
Is it going to be one of those days ....... should I just go back to bed now, or will it just be like any other Friday ....... it's only a number after all!

As it's Friday, and the second one of the month, it's time to remind you about the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge
The challenge is to Take a Stamp and create something fabulous.  It can be anything you like, a card, a journal page, a piece of home decor ....  the choice is yours.  Just remember to include some actual rubber stamping on your project somewhere.

Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Rubber Dance

And the challenge winner will receive this stamp set ...... which is actually featured on the front cover of the February issue of the magazine

January is a busy month for us .... lots of birthdays, so I thought I'd make a start on the cards ......

Here's a really simple design that can be adapted to suit any age
Using the large number dies from Stampin Up! I simply die cut the 25 from the centre of a piece of black cardstock  and again from a piece of coloured card from my stash.
I then inlaid the coloured numbers into the black card .... easy

The sentiment was then stamped underneath and heat embossed with a silver powder

I then die cut more of the numbers from black card and attached them randomly around the edge ..... gives the look of an embossed piece of card I think

A few dots of glitter glue adds a touch of sparkle .....

As I said this can be done for any age, and in any colour .... great for kids!

Check out the Craft Stamper blog for all the challenge details and more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day and have a cosy weekend.
The weather forecast is not great.  I hope it's not too cold and wintry where you are ..... I know that parts of the UK have got snow.  We did have some during the night ..... it wasn't half coming down at about 3am this morning! But ..... it's all gone now, from Douglas anyway. Not sure what it's like up on the mountain though ..... I haven't been out yet.  It is blowing a right old hoolie out there!

We're off to look at some houses this morning ...... not the best idea we've had.  Let's hope Friday 13th is a lucky day for us.

Cheerio until next time ..... stay safe and warm
