Queen For the Day-SCS

 Gosh, Fridays sure come around fast and it is time to case a card again for the newly crowned queen on Splitcoaststampers. This week's queen is Taylor aka stagccva and this is the card I cased. I made a one layer card as Taylor did but made mine an A2 size instead of a square card.

My computer is acting goofy so things may be out of whack. Just ignore it. :-) I'll make this short and sweet.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'm going out of state to a wedding. My youngest son is in the wedding so I'll get to see him and my daughter-in-law. Yea!

CCEE Stampers - Vintage

I think vintage is the hardest type card for me but that is what Kathy of CCEE Stampers  asked we do this week. I had won this stamp set by Crafty Individuals (the background and lady) a while back and thought it would be perfect. So, I colored her, gave her a glittery waist bow, cut her out, and popped her on some white wash paper.

My flower, doily, and sentiment were added and that completed my card.

Hope you'll hop over to CCEE and join us this week.

Buttons and Bows-FOSTV

 The FOSTV challenge this week is Buttons and Bows.  I added glossy accents to my Marianne Creatables Tags and Buttons to give them a 'real' look. Then, added the brown and white gingham bow for a finishing touch.

I'm using a Mark's Finest Papers Pussy Willows stamp set for the image and the sentiment is from
MFP Flaps My Wattles.

Paper: MFP Old World Gold, white cardstock, unknown matching designer paper
Ink: Memento Potter's Clay

My sketch is from Splitcoaststampers, SC239.

We would love for you to join our challenge this week. We will be giving away this fabulous set from Mark's Finest Papers called Daffodil Greetings. So, just make a card for the mentioned challenge and link up. Maybe you'll be the winner.

I'm entering my card into the Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge to use buttons.
Also, Simon Says Stamp has an Anything Goes challenge.
