OCCC Doddle This....., IC170, WSC71 Friendship....


Happy Saturday everyone!!!

This month -Kim Teasdale is hosting the OCC Challenges. Today we start off by adding *Doodling* to our card!!! For all the Samples and more info please visit the OCC Blog!!!

I'm a very bad *doodler* (sounds funny- huh??? I heard in the land down under it has a totally different meaning.....*blushing* - LOL!!!). Yep, my handwriting and my drawings are not my strong side - LOL!!! But that's where the fabulous *Doodle This* Set from SU comes to my rescue!!! I haven't used this Set in so long and I'm glad I held on to it!!!

I still had my stampin' stuff from the SC218 project out and I thought since it's so pretty I'll use it on this card as well...!!! Just in case you've missed my project the other day - click HERE to view it!!!

For this card I used the MOJO76 Sketch. The DP is from Simple Scrappin Kit *Special Delivery Girl*. The Kit came with the Textured Apricot Appeal and Groovy Guava CS. I inked my flower in Old Olive onto the two different CS and cut them out. Next I rolled the petals of the flower around a pencil to make them curl a bit. I used Stampin Dimensionals to raise the second flower up. For the center piece on the flower I punched out a little flower from the SU *Trio Flower* Punch and dressed it up with a Silver Pearl (Michael's).

On the center panel I have use my brand spankin' new EK Success *Dotted Wave* Punch - thanks for enabling me Dawn Easton and Laura Fredrickson!!! Michael's has a whole new selection of EK Punches - go and check them out!!! According to the Sketch I added the DS Groovy Guava Ribbon to center panel. At last I added the sentiment from the *Warmest Regards* Set and the piercing right below.

Hope you will join us this week?!?

For a close up on every ones project please visit the OCC ladies on their blog - Cindy Haffner, Jennifer Meyer, Kim Teasdale, Lori Boyd, Robin Willis, Frances Byrne, Jenny Gropp and Viki Garrett.

********************************************************
This is my card I made for the IC170 - fun, fun little store full of wonderful inspiration!!!


I was inspired by this darlin' little Summer Dress.

I combined the IC with Beate's WSC71 Sketch. Did you all know she is back??? I'm so happy to see Beate stamping again - I missed her awesome Sketches and her fabulous talent!!!

The base is 5" x 5". The CS is - White (PTI), Tempting Turquoise. The image is from There She Goes - *Nature of Friendship*.

The colors I used on the image are Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip.

The Ribbon is from the Raspberry Fizz PTI Collection. To finished it off I added the sentiment, the Silver Brads and the small Silver Pearls.

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you back here on Tuesday with a fun Flourishes Challenge!!!
