TGIF, are you........

as happy as I am about that? Hello my friends, I hope you are all doing well on this Friday. Today I have a little something for y'all. Yesterday I had a look around SCS and the "ways to use it" challenge caught my eye. Julia asked to frame it, well, that can be done quite a few ways so for more info go here to find out WT214 and since I love when something kind of works itself out and I can kill two flies at the same time, I incorporated Sharon Johnson's challenge "Stamp Simply # 83" thread it through. To make these two challenges one I knew I had to use my Cricut Expression and my Accent Essentials cartridge for it. This cart has a tag/label on it that is similar to the Top Note and when you cut it out it cuts a positive and a negative. In this case I had my frame and a label all at ones ;P. To make that frame a little more interesting I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Script embossing folder, to add a little something I also wanted a flourish on my card so the same cart cut a 1.5" flourish for me. I love it when things work out that easy, don't you? Well, to get the "thread it through" for Sharon's challenge in there I just had to thread ribbon in and out the frame and to add a little umph (I know this is not a real word, sorry) I threaded some glass beads on some very narrow satin ribbon and weaved it in and out as well. Have a look and see what I did

Wait for the LORD

Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, recycled moss colored cs from , K&Company Blue Awning
Ink: VersaMagic Spanish Olive, Chalk Box, Creamy Brown, Chestnut Roan, Prussian Blue
Stamp: Unity Psalm 27:14
Accessories: Cricut Expression, Accent Essentials cartridge for the top note like label cut @ 3.5" and the flourish cut @ 1.5", Cuttlebug and Script embossing folder, off white sheer ribbon, off white satin ribbon, champagne colored satin ribbon, Ivory ornate heart button, pearls, shades of green and cream glass beads, handmade stick pin with some of the same glass beads, Kaiser half pearls, dimensionals and foam tape.

So, how do you like this one? Does it qualify for both of the challenges? I am sorry, but I have to run, I'll have to get ready to get my 7 y.o. from school.

I hope you all will have a wonderful and sunny Spring weekend. Thanks you so very much for stopping by!!!!

Sabrina this is beautiful. I just love all the woven ribbon. It looks so awesome. I just got home from out of town and I had happy mail from you. Thank you so much. I must say that having a sample (or many samples) I now know that I wasn't making the flowers right. I love them. Your little card and purse are adorable. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I love it all. Hugs to you....
