FTTC110, CR84FN20 Thank You...and more!!!

Hallo everyone!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend? We sure did :) !!! We finally had nothing going on and I had a chance to clean my poor neglected home! Then Monday came around and unfortunately it was not a happy day at all...remember I was telling you about my supervisor Janice who was in the need of a heart transplant??? Well, our sweet Janice was taken home on Monday afternoon! Our Savior has lifted all the suffering from her and she can finally rest in peace! As you all can imagine our office is not a fun place to work right now. Janice was spunky, caring and the sweetest lady ever and I will surely miss her!!! If you find it in your heart please pray for her imitate family as they see through this sad time!

With all the resting this weekend I had a chance to stamp a card for today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC110!!! Our fabulous Maki is hosting this week and she is challenging us to add some *MASKING* to our cards/project!  HERE is an awesome tutorital by our own super talented Julie Koeber. Can you tell where I got my idea from...LOL??? To be honest with you I haven't tried this technique in a long, long time and I'm glad Julie has created this tutorial for us...thank you Julie!!!

Okay here is my take on it....




My main image is from the sweet Mix-n-Mugs Set. I stamped the images in Memento Black and colored them with these Copic Markers ~ RV00, V01, BV000, V17, BV06, C0, C1, RV000 and YG99. Next I embossed the Plum Pudding CS with the QuicKutz Striped Lable Folder. Next I added the Plum Pudding Ribbon, matching Button, Silver Cord and the Silver Pearls.

My entire card came together with the awesome layout from this weeks SSS100 (without the spin) and the gorgeous colors are from the CR84FN20.

Now it's time to check out the rest of the team  ~ Cindy, Maki, Dee, BettyTammy ideas. And please don't forget our fabbo March Guest Designer Amanda!!!

Thank you for taking the time to swing by here...as always I love to hear from you! Have a wonderful day! ~Silke~
