I can tell you the awesome news!!!
I was asked to be on the *Friends of Flourishes* Blog Team!!!
How fun is that??? I still have to pinch myself now and then....LOL!!!
Of course I had to get crafty right away with my new Stamps and show off two cards I made for the special occasion!!!
Please stick with me...this is a longer post and you don't want to miss all the fun at the end!!!
First I want to share my fabulous Teammates with you - I'm surrounded by so much talent - Becca Feeken, Betty Wright, Christine Okken, Cindy Haffner, Dee Jackson and Kimberly Crawford!!!
Here is a little info about my cards - I used the Pacific Point Patterns DP on both cards as well as the Pacific Point, Bashful Blue and Whisper White CS.
The flower on my first card is from the gorgeous *Thank You* Set. I inked it in Black Stazon and colored it with the Peacock Blue (PM-125) Prisma Marker. The Sketch is from the WSC15. To dress it all up I pierced a double row on the left side, added a White Sheer Ribbon and some Silver Pearls.
My second card is so to speak a bonus card....I used the gorgeous Silhouette image from the *Spring Ephemerals* Set. I inked it in Pacific Point and the sentiment in Bashful Blue. I actually trimmed the sentiment and raised it with Stampin Dimensionals. The layout for this card is from the WSC19 Sketch. I added some matching flowers I've found at Walmart and added a new *Filigree* Brad in the center. If you look closer I pierced right below the flower & DP!!!
Now - here is the fun Challenge that inspired me to make my cards!!!
Don't be so "blue" this holiday season! Join us for week three of the *Festive Flourishes Friday* Challenge! The theme is just as it sounds ~ "You'll be doing alright with your Christmas of white but I'll have a blue, blue Christmas!" Grab your favorite Flourishes stamp set and dress it up with a dose of blue! It doesn't have to be a Christmas card! Any style will do! Remember, you can join into our challenge at any time and, if you make up past challenges and complete all four - your name will be thrown into the hat for a free stamp set of your choice! Link your card to the *Flourishes Blog*, to a blog post or your SCS gallery. Don't forget the keyword *FFFC3* on Splitcoast! Of course, we'd love it if you added the FLLC keyword too so that your work shows up in the company gallery!!!
