FTTC105 Best Wishes...and more!!!

Hello everyone!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a nice Valentine??? Our weekend was awesome!!! Sarah, our oldest had her basketball playoff game on Saturday and her team WON...YEAH.!!!! The last few seconds of the game were so dramatic I thought I pass out...LOL!!! Of course we had to celebrate this happy event.....and my Saturday was pretty much done. All the excitement wore me out...as soon as I came home I took a 5 hour nap...!!! My girls are on Winter Break and thank goodness I only have to work half days this week...another yeah...LOL!!!

Okay, are you ready for a challenge??? Come and play this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC105 with us!!! Betty is our host and she is challenging us to add *THREE DIFFERENT PATTERN PAPERS*.

Wow, that was definitely a challenge for me...I'm *DP challenged*...LOL!!!




I used the gorgeous Humming Along Set and the sentiment is from the Fanciful Flourishes Set. The images were inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ YR0000, YR00, YR08, YR15, YR35, YG11 and G12, G21, G24.  The DP I used is from the SU So Saffron and Bermuda Bay Pattern Print Collection. The plain So Saffron DP was embossed with the SU Square Lattice Folder. Next I embellished the card with some White Satin Ribbon, a Silver Button with White Scrap Floss, my favorite Silver Pearls and of course some Glitter!!!

Of course I could not have pulled it all together without the fabbo CR84FN15 Color Challenge!!! This weeks colors were tough, but oh so gorgeous!!!


Now it's time to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, Maki, Betty, Tammy and our awesome February Guest Designer Laura Pryor!!!

Have a great week and I'll see ya soon! Hugs ~S~
