Hello Friend

Happy Thursday, all!  How have the past couple of days been!  It feels like it has been CRAZY here...even though it has mostly just been crazy for Josh.  The BBY is making some changes, and he has spent the past 24 hours pretty much on the phone.  Ha!! He also has to be in Portland when we are supposed to be flying out for Texas...so we've had to get THAT figured out too.  We pretty much have it all taken care of now, so that is a good thing!  Tonight we are going to watch the Griz play Syracuse in the big dance...hopefully they will have a Cinderella moment!!

I have a fun and easy friendship card to share with you tonight!  It features some of the new Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection {which I LOVE!!} and an adorable Lawn Fawn stamp that matches perfectly!!  I put this card together in less than 10 minutes.  Oh yes- I did!!  With stitching and all...I was pretty proud of myself!  Here is what I created:
Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from kraft cardstock.
2. Layer circle sticker, green paper block and scalloped papers trip to the card front.
3. Wrap twine around the top seam.
4. Stitch along the bottom of an ombre tag, then layer to the front with a chipboard circle.
5. Stamp the sentiment bubble to white cardstock, adhere to chipboard circle, then accent with a heart.
6. Tie a double bow from twine, add a wooden button to the center and adhere to the tag top.
7. Add a diecut arrow to the bottom of the card, then accent with sequins & a pearl to finish.

Challenges:
-Moxie Fab World Card Creations Week challenge - Ombre
-10 Minute Craft Dash #14 - Colors (9 min, 52 seconds)
-Charisma Cardz #11 - Diecuts
-Lawnscapings #54 - Stitching











Nicole Rixon, the owner of Sweet Stamp Shop, had mentioned on Facebook how she got this big package of sequins...and these colors were in it!  I was coveting them like crazy, so I headed out and picked up the same pack so I could have some too.  I love them...and I LOVE this card!  This Dear Lizzy collection is a fantastic one!!

Well, that is all I have for you tonight!  If you are watching basketball and aren't a Syracuse fan...give a little GO GRIZ shout out!  Tee hee!

Until later,
~L.

  3. I'm with you, I LOVE the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection. I have the 6 x 6 paper pack and cannot stop using it!

    I surely do love this card, Lea. If you weren't such a crafting superstar, I never would believe you could finish this within 10 minutes. However, since you are a crafty pro, I don't doubt you. :) This card rocks on so many levels!
