A new Monday Challenge

Friends of Speedy TV are Challenging you to make a Square Card or square 
whatever strikes you fancy!. Any size will do. We would love to have you join us
 this week! I used a border embossing folder for the center of the card then rubber
 a little of the color off.  After cutting a topper for my card I stitched it all together
. The dp was cut with a Spellbinder die as was the floral image and foam dotted 
on. The sentiment was stamped on a square and turned to make a diamond 
shape and attached with a brad .I have used the Blackeyed Susan image 
The ladies have lots of pretty inspiration so why not stop over and
join in the fun this week. You may be the winner of
the Stamp Set!!

How about

Pink Yellow and Green? That is the MFP Color Challenge this week.
 Every week we have a new inspiring or maybe a challenging color trio for you to try! 
My talented teamies have lots of wonderful creations to inspire you so stop over and 
join us this week. I have done another CAS as life is so complicated these days the cas
 seems to be a little soothing! My sweet friend Martha sent me several new embossing 
folders for my birthday and I love this one. I have actually only used half of it for
 the top of my card. A simple sentiment from the Today Tomorrow and Forever Set
 I found the perfect piece of dp that has all three of the colors in it.. I tried several
different colors and kinds of flowers, lace and butterflies but nothing looked 
right so a little simple black butterfly to finish it and its okay!

It's time for team B's Challenge this week. The theme for this weeks
 challenge is Family Christmas
 Our generous Sponsor is Stamping Boutique and I have used their Birds and Stockings Image.
Doesnt this cute little image make you think of family all hanging out together!! 
After coloring I added some background and plenty of sparkle on the stocking
 cuffs and the ground around the poles. After cutting out I used some 
SU Kraft to mat it on. The pretty sparkly dp is from my friend Martha. 
Matted the MFP sentiment on a darker brown and added to star
 button for a bit of a homespun look.
 Lots of pretty inspiration from my teammates this week so stop 
over and join our challenge this week.

Good Morning Friends....

Today at Friends of Speedy TV we are challenging you to
 use Blue & Silver. 
 Get you mojo stirring and come join the fun. I needed a few more Christmas Cards 
so I have two  simple ones to share with you today. I tell you I took a bucket load 
of photos and just couldnt get the silver to show up right and the
 blues look totally different in person, better that is! Oh well you will
 get the general idea!! The Snowflake and Joy
 were embossed with silver. The image is from the Snowflake Set 2014 and 
Joy from the Presents Set. The dark blue is stitched in silver and a silver ribbon 
added. How about that embossed border, I love it!!
. My sweet friend Martha sent
 me a Huge box full of all kinds of paper and papercrafting goodies for
 my birthday, and this was one of the folders!

The second card uses the Poinsettia from the Poinsettia Blooms Set
 stamped twice on vellum, embossed with silver and cut out. I then colored 
the poinsettias blue which doesnt show! The layers are foam dotted onto the
 Spellbinder cut base. The dp is edged with silver Stickles.
 Merry Christmas from the same set is embossed also.

Be sure to stop by and see all the lovely creations my teams have made!!

Hope you all had a Super Thanksgiving! 
We enjoyed ours with some of our family. Today starts a new TTSTV Challenge
 and it is water coloring with Gelatos.This is my first time using them.
 My small starter set only had 8 colors and purple isnt one of them so
 had to mix some up. I used them for the background swirling purples
 and aquas together on water color paper. It was stitched onto some
 Stampin Up purple. I love the lantern image from the Poinsettia Set. Colored 
with the Gelatos, cut out and foam dotted on the base. 
The Sentiment  is also from the Poinsettia Set added and a
 simple Christmas card is done!
