I Am BACK.....
I have been away from my blog and stamping due to a family situation..I traveled back home for 3 weeks. It was so great to see my family. I got my girls all tucked in at college. The house is so quiet. I am hoping to get caught up because I have so many exciting projects I want to create.
I wanted to start with a card for the Flourishes Monthly Christmas challenge. This month Stacy's challenge was to create a mail friendly Christmas card. I cheated just a tad because I wanted to enter it in a few other challenges too. I used the beautiful set from Flourishes called Winter Bouquets. The designer paper I chose is also from Flourishes and it is the Basic Grey Origins collection.
The chocolate ribbon is the cotton linen ribbon from the Flourishes Ribbon Collection. I used my Copics Collection for the coloring. Flourishes has the best combinations of copics sets.
I used the CPS 78 sketch for my layout. You can find the challenge HERE.
I used 2 ribbons for the Christmas Stampin All Year Round: HERE is that challenge.
Over at the Crazy Challenge Blog the theme is: Never Too Early For Christmas..HERE
For the Flourishes Noel Challenge here are the deets:
Here's how to play: Now flat can be subjective so let's say mailing your card with one postage stamp on the envelope. When you wrap it up with a bow, just link up to the SCS challenge thread here and you'll be in the running to win a Flourishes Christmas stamp set of your choice!! Just think, you'll get a jump start on your Christmas creations AND have a chance at winning stamps to make even more Christmas cards! Oh what fun it is!! Please use the Keyword FLLCNOEL4 if you upload to Splitcoast. You have until August 31st 5 pm EST to submit your cards and Flourishes will announce the winner with next month's challenge!
One of the things I did was meet some of the Flourishes ladies at CHA. We had so much fun and left feeling inspired. I can't wait for you all to see all the new stuff to come. Flourishes is having a big sale right now so head on over and check it out. FLOURISHES
