Happy Friday my stamping friends! I've got a busy weekend coming up - Kent and I are going to a play tonight at the Lyric Stage Boston call The Tempermentals, then out to eat at Not Your Average Joe's with my college roommate and her husband Saturday night - and celebrating Palm Sunday at church on Sunday where our organist will be playing on our brand new organ (our very old organ died a slow death over the past several years!)
Today I'm sharing 3 cards I made for challenges this week over on Split Coast Stampers.
This card was for the Tuesday Teapot Challenge - where the theme was Paris. I also used the Sketch from last week.
Paris 1908 Set and the sentiment is from the Floral Silhouette set. The pretty papers are from Pink Paislee Vogue Collage Paper Pak.
My next card was made for the Clean and Simple Challenge where we had a lovely inspiration picture of pastel frosted cupcakes.
I used little gingerbread men and a sentiment from the Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy set from Waltzingmouse instead of cupcakes, framing them with a line frame stamp from the Frame It set. I used a Fabriano card that has a distressed edge and is textured almost like watercolor paper.
And my final offering today was made for the Color Challenge - to use Concord Crush, Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo (I substituted some colors here not having all of the SU ones - but that's allowed!)
This beautiful egg is from Nestie Eggs from Waltzingmouse and the papers are Pink Paislee Vogue Collage Paper Pack.
I'll be back on Sunday with my card for the Sunday Stampin Sisterhood challenge - hope you'll check back then and join in on the challenge!
AND Jacquie has extended the deadline fo the stampin Sisterhood Mother's Day blog hop to tonight (Friday) at midnight EST. So if you haven't hopped yet check it out here! There are stamps to be won! The winner will be announced Saturday at the Stampin' Sisterhood blog.
Happy Weekend everyone!
