A Fun Friday Challenge


Who is glad it is Friday?  I know I am!!!  What is everyone doing this weekend?  Any scrapping plans??  I am going to my monthly crop.  I can't wait!  However, I don't know how much scrapping I am going to be doing.  I have tons of work at the store to do.  So I know the first hour or so is going to be working on getting all the Christmas lines photographed and ready to post on the blog for my November posts.  Once I have that done I need to create 3 double page layouts for my December sketch class.  I am really excited about this class.  I am using the Crate Paper collection. Then I can finally get working on my stuff. I have 2 challenges I would like to work on so I am pretty excited.

Have you heard about  Card Cupids  This is such an awesome organization.  They send cards to children in need of a little pick me up.  I have been wanting to participate for the longest time but have never had the time and when I saw this challenge I new I had to try.

The challenge is to create a card using your favorite punch.  You know I love punches and currently my favorite punch is the  EK Success postage stamp border punch.  I know it is hard to tell from the angle of the card (sorry about that one) but the green border above and below the brown strip has the postage stamp border.  

paper-3Bugs in a Rug
twine- the twinery
buttons-paper trey ink
stamp-hero arts, some odd girl
marker- copic
tools- ek success border punch

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I will be back on Monday with a sketch challenge for Burlap and Buttercups.  I hope to see you there!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
