Blogger Challenge - Wedding

Happy Friday!
 
Today is Blogger Challenge day over on Lisa's Blog,  Splendiferous Creations where the theme this week is,  Wedding/Anniversary cards.  I tried several different ideas yesterday and none of them were working out the way I wanted them too.  Then I remembered a stamp that I had that I thought would make a "different" sort of Wedding card and before I knew it my idea became this card:



Stamps:  Linked by Love -  The label on this stamp says, Inkadinkado but also has K&Company and Basic Grey listed on it so I'm not sure which one actually made 
    the stamp.  It's dated 2005 if that helps.
 
    Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black & Whisper White, SU.
    Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
    Punches,  Hearts (SU) and Chain Link (EK Success)
    Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug - Anna Griffin line-Rose
    Pearls - Zva

Blogger Challenge - At the Beach

Hi and Welcome to my blog. -  Today I'm joining in on the fun of Blogger Challenge where the featured theme this week is,  At The Beach.  This is pretty much where I'd rather be today then watching it rain outside again.  The cold, rainy weather is messing with my sinuses something awful and I'd much prefer a nice sunny beach to relax on then being cooped up inside but alas it is what it is.

Don't forget to stop by Lisa's blog, Splendiferous Creations and check out the other beach themed cards.
 


For this card I used Stamps from Amuse Studio's,  Life's a Breeze stamp set.
Card Stock - SU - Cherry Cobbler, Groovy Guava*, Brocade Blue*, and Whisper White.
Designer Paper - Three Bugs in a Rug
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Brocade Blue*, Dusty Durango*
Other: Prisma Colored Pencils, Pearls (Zva), Toothpick, Nestabilitie Dies, Punch (Fiskars) and foam mounting tape.

Have a fabulous weekend.
