CR84FN22 SOME EXCITING NEWS!!!

Happy Sunday everyone!

As I mentioned yesterday, April is a fun stampin' month for me. I have a few new gigs coming up and today I'm thrilled to share that I'm this months Guest Designer for Mona Pendleton's fabulous Color Challenge *CR84FN* ....YEAH!!! I'm so excited to hang out with the entire team and I know if you haven't meet them yet, you will love them as much as I do!!!


Today's colors are again just fabulous...CHECK THEM OUT!!!


Here is my take on it...


I was in need of a *thank you* card and I used the sentiment from the beautiful Flouirshes Many Sentiment Set. The DP in the backgroud is from the Prima Madeline Collection. My flowers were created with the awesome MFT Small Rolled Rose Die (sold out right now). I decided to *distress* and *ink distress* the edges a bit. Next I embellished the my card with some Brown Satin Ribbon, some Cotton Lace, a MS Butterfly and some Silver Pearls.

Now it time to hop on over to the CR84FN22 post to check out all the fabbo cards the team has created or swing by their blogs ~ Mona, Heather, Stephanie, Sue, Andrea, Suzanne, Deborah and Lisa.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you again on Tuesday with more fun news...hugs ~S~
