To A Dear Friend!!!

Hi everyone,

I have made a card or actually a double card, lol, which i have never tried, so please bear with me...., 1st some background for you to understand where this is coming from, LOL

I have been friends with Mary for what seems forever and even tho they have moved several times, each time further from me, yikes, we still stayed good friends, never missing sending xmas/ cards and even valentine too, she is my BFF, not so..........:))
Well, when i got the e-mail the other day asking why i missed sending her a xmas card last year, boy did i know i was in trouble, lol, so just had to make it up to her, right!!! And that is why my card is double.............hehehehe, xmas and just because/valentine ..............

Now the image i used is one of Sassy Studio Designs - Valentine Honey, which i recently won over on PCP with the FFF Challenge, simply adore Lindsay's images, sweet/ sassy and super fun to play with!!! The new Dare To Be Sassy Challenge is to make a christmas/winter holiday card and this fitted so nicely into what i wanted to do!!!

I came across the challenge blog CR84FN Color Challenge Blog and their challengge was to use pink/red and light blue, ok, can work with these, will be different, but i like!!

Sooooo, the front of my card came together this way........
Pattern paper as bg , another strip of pp across, another square of pp over the strip, rounded my corners, the image was cut out with a circle cutter and placed on two other circle's a little bigger each time, you see, that's a lot of layering,lol.
Then i added a snowflake with gems, a die cut leave bush( sorry, not sure what the die is called), a chipboard bird which i colored blue and added some white lines with a gell roller and a small gem for the eyes.

Ok, you still hanging in there for me, lol, hold on tight, a bit of a bumpy ride..........hehehehe

Next i added a little bell with bow, some flowers, ok , a lot, lol, a greeting with some gold pearls, love them, and finally my buttons and a bow with flower in the last corner!

2nd Page i have my pp, adding two strips of ribbon, still staying with the colors pink/red and blue,another piece of pp on which i mounted a piece of plain cs, added a rub-on flair with a sentiment( Just(because) saying Hello) , tehn another heart were attched here with a brad with a Butterfly, so lovely, added another bow and some gems!!!

WOW that was a lot said, also the 1st time that i have put it out like that, yikes a few first's for me, lol,would love to hear what you think..........:))
Embellishments used were from my own stash and from PIZZAZZ APLENTY and MEI FLOWER , do check out these stores, they are stunning, fab service and yummy goodies!!

OK, now for the last( think it will def be my last in doing this,lol) 1st, to take on the challenge at Pile It On - Just Because and to see how many challenges can i pile on here, wish me luck!!

Pretty in PINK!!!

Hi there again.........

Over at the Scrapbook Stamp Society , they have a challenge that is so right up my alley, lol, pink, yeah, love the color, so i had a ball playing with one of their images, such a cutie , you have to check out the rest of their images, gorjuss, i love the Lil Ragmuffins, ooohhhhhh lovely , ok, getting side-tracked here .........

Here is my entry in so many different shades of pink, love how it came out, hope you do too..............:))

Have a TIP for you here:
When you would like to place your pearls in a pattern, but battle with getting them in line or even out, do the following:;
Take a piece of acetate , trace the pattern you want to use, say a heart, take your ruler and mark dots at intervals, this will depend on how big the heart or other pattern is, take any sharp point tool and make large enough holes in the 'dots' , place the acetate pattern over the space you want to have it, make dots with your glue in the 'holes' , gently lift the acetate and place your pearls/gem on the glue dots and voila, a perfect pattern! Cut this pattern out and keep for next time!!

Would love it if you can stop by and vote for me, you can also click on the link on top of my sidebar, thanks so much already............:))
