Favorite part of my week

was making a card for the Loonie Stampers Challenge! I have been working an extra job this week laying tile on the floor and walls of a new nightclub opening in town and boy am I exhausted. I am also still working my website job in the evenings and my DH has been out of town the whole week as well. But it will be so worth it because the extra money is going in my vacation fund as the loonies are planning another get together!!! I am SO excited

Anyway, this weeks challenge was selected by Char and LOVE how these colors look together. I don't have smokey shadow or a whole lot of gray anything so this is my version of the color.

I stamped my new medallion stamp with spring moss onto moss and accented it with greyish bling from the paper company. Then I used my pink thickers and some super lovely ivory satin ribbon...LOVE this ribbon.

Shall we go see what everyone else made?

Loonie Stampers Challenge #80

ETA: My post was scheduled but I didn't do the date correctly. I apologize for my tardiness :(

Welcome to my week!! It was my turn to select the colors for the challenge and I decided to take inspiration from a website I am currently working on. It is for a dance studio and we used these colors. Here is a screeen shot of the website (that is not yet open)

Aren't these colors amazing together?? Love them very much...not to mention my boss did a smashing job with this website layout. Anyway here is my card that I had a blast making.

Dont forget to go visit my ladies!!!!! I cant wait to see what they did.

Floral Embellishments for my BFF

So today over at Papertrey Ink, Nichole introduced a set designed for paper crafters and talked about making your own embellishments. She then issued a challenge contest to make our own embellies and make a card with them along with a 6 pack for a friend. That is exactly what I did. My Bff is newly introduced to Card making and she is gonna LOVE these!!

I made my card using the turning a new leaf designer paper and spring moss cardstock from papertrey. Added a little ribbon and the book print fluffy flowers that I made. Then I made a matching 6 pack and used the scraps of DP to make it look packaged. I hope she loves them as much as I do.

Loonie Stampers Challenge #79

This was a super fun Challenge to do! Thanks for popping in this week to see it. Wendy selected for us to use a Martha Stewart Punch, Papertrey Ink Designer Paper and Stampin up ribbon.

In all fairness I have to admit that we were supposed to do it in a love theme and have sewing on it. I forgot both, but added faux stitching. Oops!

Check out what the ladies did and have yourself a GREAT weekend.
