T G I F! Thank god it’s FRIDAY! I am so ready for this week to done! It is still freezing here, the overnight low was 12 degrees and tomorrow they are saying a chance of snow. I’m still hoping they are wrong! I believe that snow should be reserved for ski resorts not metropolitan areas! I had my SU! meeting last night and it was fun as always. I love seeing everyone and getting the swaps which were really neat! I’ll post my swap card soon and the ones that I got too! Are we ready for the weekend?? I sure am!
Friday also means that it’s time for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week the ladies have given us a color challenge…
Funnily enough when I first looked at the colors I envisioned holiday, must be the cold weather! A second glance and some advice from a friend helped me think flowers. The base of the card is Pretty in Pink Card Stock. The background is a piece of Very Vanilla and I stamped the greeting from the Wacky Wishes Host(ess) Stamp Set and the stem in Lucky Limeade. The flower is one of the new single stamps called Boutique Blossom. I stamped it in Raspberry Ripple and cut it out with my Paper Snips. The butterflies are from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set and are also stamped in Raspberry Ripple. I used the Bitty Butterfly Punch to punch them out. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them and the flower to the card. I like the simplicity and the large flower is great. I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card for this week. Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful FRIDAY!
