Speedy's Friends Challenge #2

Today is Speedy's Friends Challenge, to use corner punches. I couldn't resist doing one last card, even though I have put most of my supplies away to take on vacation.

What you see here is NOT going with me, except for the stamps. I got out my crimper, which doesn't get a lot of attention, to give a little texture to this paper pieced flower from MFP. This set, called Camellias and Apples will be released this summer.

Please join us in the challenge. Link your entry to Mark's Finest Papers blog, and you may win a stamp set of your choice!!

Bye all. See you on the 24th, when we return.

Inspiration Challenge

The inspiration challenge today at SCS takes us to a site called HUSET, a Scandinavian store selling items for home and family. I found a wonderful RED candelabra to use for this card, and just had to surround it with my Dala (Swedish horses).

I actually combined this challenge with the QFTD08, which was posted yesterday. The chosen queen was Lynn (allee), who has the most beautiful gallery, and she is known for her layered images. Her card that I cased however is CAS one, that I felt really worked with this Huset one.

Today I am packing for our vacation. We leave early in the morning. I'll be picking up Mom on the way with her stuff (mostly crafts like me!), and we'll meet DH at a restaurant for lunch. He'll have a computer so I can upload, but my comments will be few as we will be off and running. Be back home on the 23rd. Happy Mother's Day to you all!
