I just loved this trigger

It's been a busy couple of days and generally it was a really difficult week at work. Yesterday night was really needed, my work colleagues and I got together for a few drinks, laughs and great music at a friend's place, it was lovely catching up outside work and we are going to try and do this more often. My job might be difficult but I love the people I work with :) :)

I think there are going to be many late nights with the Olympics,  for those of you who watched the opening ceremony I am sure you will all agree it was just great. I am really looking forward to watching the sprinting, weight lifting, boxing and the list goes on :). I have now found out that one of my favourite hip hop band's which is De la Soul will be hosting my favourite music show so I think it's going to be a night filled with great music and lack of sleep, thank goodness it's Saturday.

Anyway,  now to my card, I got the inspiration from this weeks trigger at Moxie Fab World. I knew exactly what I wanted to make when I saw the trigger, I am happy with the way the card turned out, it's a design  which I can use up scraps of paper. The birds are a digital image and the sentiment has been computer generated. I created the heart bunting with twine and punched out  hearts that have been attached to the cardstock using my much used self adhesive dimensional foam squares.

I am planning to make a few cards tomorrow, hope to post them tomorrow evening. The challenge is very challengeing and what I have decided is that I have to total 30 cards within the month, it's near impossible for me at times to make a card everyday especially when I got home last night at about 3am.

The crafty bloggers network challenge blog-Anything goes
Lia Stampz-Anything goes
