Friday's Weekly Challenge from Bloggers Challenge

Yes, it is already Friday and time to unveil my Friday's Weekly Challenge from Bloggers Challenge! This week we were challenge to use a wonderful sketch from Lisa Sommerville one our very talented artist and designer. I actually print out next months sketch and started to work on the card...and this morning I got a minute to look at a few blogs to see some of the idea other members use for the sketch...and realized...I was designing with the wrong sketch. Needless to say, I came home from work and sat down and came up with this card for the challenge! This card was created with a dear friend's daughter in mind. She will be graduating from high school in a few weeks! Thanks again to Lisa for the wonderful sketch and I hope everyone enjoys the card!
Enjoy a cup of tea and enjoy the other members blogs, see the wonderful work they created for this challenge!

Friday's Weekly Challenge from Bloggers Challenge

Happy Friday! I am always thrilled when Friday comes and I have my project completed!!! I completed this card early this week! The challenge from Bloggers Challenge this week was a color challenge. The colors we had to use for this challenge where red, teal and curry! This was very difficult for me. I think color and sketch challenges are the most difficult for me! I find these challenges limit my creativity and they make me work so much harder then a theme type of challenge. Anyway, I started out with three different pieces of colorstock... the card style was looking southwest and I thought that may be the way! Then I slept on it and woke to with an a bell going off!! It was more like a creative chime! Then I dug through my papers and came up with this beautiful black and white floral paper....grabbed some copics and something wonderful came together! I hope you enjoy the card! Please, take a minute and check out all the awesome projects that the other bloggers from Bloggers Challenge have created for this challenge!

Same Card Different Look..

After I posted my last post, I went upstairs and enjoyed a movie with my other half! While watching the movie, I was thinking about the card that I posted... and thought... I think it would look better with one of my favorite papers behind it! Well, I came downstairs and made the change and thought I would also share this version with you all! I really wanted to use the technique for the background layer on this card...but I also like it with this paper...what do you think?

Weekly Challenge from Bloggers Challenge

This is my card for the weekly challenge from Bloggers Challenge. It was to be posted of Friday, so I am a little late! The theme for this weeks challenge was Emboss It. I chose to use the dry emboss technique and I inked my embossing folder with Vera Mark's Frost Dazzle to get the effect that I got on my glossy paper that I brayer with kaleidacolor ink. This was an easy technique that I used and the results are very stunning! Please take the time and visit the other members blogs at Bloggers Challenge and see the beautiful work all the members have submitted for this challenge!

Friendship Album

This is a little TP Friendship album that was completed after Kristen from ScrapBookNook taught a class showing everyone how to put this sweet album together.

I designed by album to be a Friendship Album for my darling daughter. I am hoping that this book will bring many happy memories for years to come!

I enjoyed using the colorful pink papers and added a little bling and fibers to the album!

The inserts are tags that I cut with my cricut and I just used photoshop to adjust the size for the tags. I used some flowers that I punched for the little pull tabs.

I searched through all my stamps for my friendship stamps!! I never knew I had so many until I was working on this project!

This project was a simple project that I really enjoyed to do! I can easily see myself making more in the future!! I hope everyone enjoyed seeing the album!
