Friends of Speedy TV challenge


Good Morning morning..hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I went out of town and relaxed a bit and visited a good scrapbook store, picking up some goodies.

Monday is the beginning of a new challenge at Friends of Speedy TV located at Home of Speedy TV.  This week the challenge is to create a Memorial Day card. I'm using an image from Mark's Finest Papers called Fabulous Dogs.

I stamped my dog twice, colored him, cut out, and popped on. He is paper pieced with Mark's Finest Papers Old World Gold cardstock. The banner was made with a Fiskars scallop banner punch and the middle star was punched with a Fiskars small star pop up punch. I added the two sticker stars and the bar at the top and strip at the bottom are Creative Imaginations Liberty adhesive stickers. The sentiment is made with a Spellbinders Shapeabilities die called ribbon banners. I typed the sentiment.

The stamp set you could possibly win if you play the challenge at Friends of Speedy TV this week is Hello Trucks.


We would love if you came over to Speedy TV and joined us this week.
