Hey there.....

it's a new week and lots of things happening. Well, let me show you a little something first and then I'll let you know what is happening :D:D:D. Last week, well, Friday, Sharon Johnson asked to make a card for the Stamp Simply challenge # 99 that had the word "Friend" on it somewhere. Because I have not been able to participate in a few weeks, I just had to get some of my new Basic Grey June Bug paper out and go to town. Sharon always asks to make "SIMPLE" cards and she does not have very many requirements, so her challenges are always fun. If you want to find out more about it head on over to Sharon's blog . If you did not know it already, Sharon has this super cool ribbon that she sells in her Stamp Simply Ribbon store. It is May Arts ribbon and let me tell you, you will fall in love with this stuff :D:D:D. The colors are awesome for all of them but I just love her silk ribbon!!!! It is soooooooooo soft and the bows look always great.

Anyhow back to my card. I am usually not a very bright color kind of gal, but when i received some more Basic Grey paper last week it had also the June Bug Pad in it and it is so fun. Needless to say I used some of it and you'll have to be sure to get your sun glasses 'cause this is a bright one,LOL!!!!

For my Friend.......

Paper: PTI White, SU new in color crushed curry, Basic Grey June Bug

Stamp: SU Elegant Cheer

Ink: Chalk Box Yellow Cadmium, Blush Rose

white grosgrain ribbon, Nesties Scalloped Circles, Prima Hydrangeas, Dew Drops from the Sunflower Mix, Foam Tape, double sided tape

Very simple card, but perfect for Sharon's challenge ;P.
This would absolutely be a card that you throw together last minute. I think it took maybe 15 min. if that.

All right now, on to the news. Make sure you guys come back tomorrow because I will be having a "Sneak Peek" for the August release over at Innovative Stamp Creations. It was so much fun this month. Some really cool images and boy oh boy will you be thrilled on with how many stamps you'll actually get with each sheet. For those that have not yet tried ISC stamps you just have to give them a try. So, make sure you'll come back tomorrow to get a look what Betsy has in store this month.

Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you all tomorrow.
