I neva seen you look so good

Good FRIDAY morning all!! It's my favorite day of the work week and my 2nd favorite day of the whole week :) AND... only three more months until Christmas!!!!!!!
Challenge #1: This post is for Sami at SPCC :) Please go over and visit as there is a HUGE Blog Hop going on!

Here are the fabulous colors this week for the color challenge:



I didn't think I could do this challenge as I am pretty much out of anything nice in these particular colors. But I heard that Sami is looking for a Design Team member and I wanted to prove to her that I can do it!!!!! So I came home after work last night and got to business!

And here is what I came up with - I challenged myself, did my best, and in my eyes that is what counts the most!! The colors aren't exact now that I see them beside each other but c'est la vie!


Challenge #2: Candy Shoppe Designs has a "make your own patterned paper" challenge. So I took this opportunity to squish all my flowers together through my Cuttlebug and create my own paper.

I glued all the flowers on a piece of cardstock, ran it through an embossing folder, and then trimmed it to size:


Boy, my infamous flowers sure have come in handy!!!!


Just a couple more detail-a-roos:



Card Ingredients: Recollections cardstock; Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder.

Happy Friday!!! Please enjoy your weekend! I will see you all back on Monday!!! xo
