FTTC107, CRN84FN17 Good Luck...and more!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Gosh...time is flying by...it's March already! Yesterday we celebrated Sarah's 13th birthday! My *baby* is officially a teenager...HELP!!! I must admit it's frickin' me out...LOL! Before I know it she is asking for a driver's permit and so on....!!! But I also must admit that I have been very blessed with her!!! She is smart, beautiful and most of all she looks like me... :), she is a really good girl !!! Ha,ha,ha just had to throw that one in...giggle!!!

We have a really fun Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC107 going on. Dee is hour host this week and she is challenging all of us to create an *IRISH* card/project or a card/project that has *GREEN* as the main color!!! So show us what you got and join us!!!

Here is my idea.......



I was lucky enough...I just received the Flourishes *Irish Blessing* Set in the mail and of course I had to use it for today's card!!!

My color inspiration for this card came from this weeks CR84FN17 Color Combo. My main green color is from the SU Pear Pizzazz Collection. The background was embossed with the SU Square Lattice Folder. I added some SU Pear Pizzazz Pattern Print DP. The main image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ YG11, G12,G21, G24, R0000, R00 and R23. To finish it all off I added some piercing, Glitter, Satin Ribbon, Button, Silver Pearls and some matching Scrapper's Floss.


Please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, Maki, Betty and Tammy. Please help us welcome our new March Guest Designer Amanda!!!

Have a wonderful week and I'll see you again soon! Hugs ~S~

Oh no, are you going with skewed panels now too!! Help!! LOL. Hate the things myself and have had to deal with them in a lot of Verve sketches lately. Swear the Divas are out to get me! Your's look fabulous :) Lovely image and wonderfully coloured. Can't WAIT to get that SU EF! Could rival Swiss Dots!

As for the teenager thing, I'm only six months behind you!! Where do the years go??!!

So beautiful and in your usual clean, crisp style! Love all the green with just a tiny pop of pink! Ahhh...the teen years can be quite the challenge, but I lived to tell about it after having 3 kids all survive their teens. :-) Just enjoy every stage they are in...I know you will!
