C4C52, IC247, CTD107 Happy Birthday....

Happy weekend everyone!!!

Thank you so much for sharing my excitment on my new job and for all your sweet comments!!! You guys are just the sweetest blogging friends e-v-e-r !!! Thank you!!!

Are you ready for another fun Crazy 4 Challenge ~ C4C52 ??? Frances has thought of another awesome challenge idea...she is challenging us to add *LATTICE* related items to our cards like stamps, design paper or anything else that fit the theme!!! Please make sure to stop by the C4C blog for all the info and on how to play along!!!



I really didn't have much crafting items to choose from :( ....I found a Martha Stewart Punch and added a border on the left hand side of my card. The main image is from a retired SU Hostess Set called God's Beauty. The inspiration for my card came from this weeks IC247 ~ ModCloth. I chose THIS pretty butterfly top for my design. I switched the colors to this weeks CTD107 ~ Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.

The main images were inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ G0000, G12, G24, Y0000, Y02, Y21, R0000, R00, R32, YR09 and Colorless Blender. The DP in the background is from the SU Welcome Neighbor Collection. I finished the card off with some Ribbon and the Silver Pearls.

As always, we'd love for you to play along :) !!!  For more inspiration check out the C4C Team ~ Angela, Barbara, Cindy, Frances, Jessie, Joanne, JoycelynLyndaMaria, Silke K. and Vicki.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a fabbo weekend!!! I'll be back tomorrow with a cute MTME Sneak Peek project!!! Hugs ~S~

Thank you for your beautiful cards! You have amazing talent! I was wondering if you know a website that would have the curley nestabilities. I have not found them anywhere. If you can help me, thank you!
I start my day looking at your site! Thank you for sharing your talent with everyone!
