FTTC 101 Sweet Friend....and more!!!

Happy Tuesday!

*Thank You* all so much for playing our 100th Celebration Blog Hop last week!!! All of your entries were absolutely beautiful and I had so much fun seeing all of your ideas!!! We will announce the winners on Thursday...so please stay tuned and good luck to you all!!!

Today, Dee is hosting the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC101!!! She is challenging us to *GO BIG*...create a ~ 5" x 7" ~ card/project. Easy peasy right...have fun!!!

We also have some exciting news. Our sweet Barbara moved up to the Senior Design Team ~ CONGRATS Barbara!!! And we are having a new playmate....yeah! Please help us welcome Tammy Hershberger!!! Tammy we are thrilled to have you :) !!!

Here is my big and tall card.......



I used the beautiful Apple of My Eye Set. The colors were inspired by this weeks CR84FN11.


Making a large card like this wasn't as easy as I thought...LOL...but to the rescue came this beautiful apple image. The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with various Copic Markers ~ R0000, R000, R00, R14, R17, R27, YG11, G24, G0000, Y15, E27 and Colorless Blender. The DP is from an older SU Collection and I added a punched out Flower Border (Martha Stewart). The yummy Chocolate Satin Ribbon is also from an older SU stash. At last I finished the card off with some Silver Pearls, a Silver Button and some Brown Scrap Floss.  

Now it's time to check out the rest of the team ~  Cindy, Dee Maki, Betty and Tammy!!!

Thank you for stopping by today!!! I'm taking a few days off and see you again on Friday...hugs ~S~
