Don't Hate Me...

Hello! Thanks for stopping by - hope you are all ready for a nice weekend.

As tomorrow is Friday, and I'm not sure what DH has on the calendar for us to do, I thought I'd post a few cards this evening!


Studio 313's challenge this week is a fun one! We were to create a card based on a Top 10 Best Selling Album. They listed several albums for us to choose from. We could use a Studio 313 image, or an image we had on hand. I chose to use one of theirs. I thought this card could actually fit in two albums: "Man, I Feel Like a Woman", by Shania Twain, or "Uptown Girl", by Billy Joel. Hope you like it!

I will also enter this card here:

Colour Create: Pink and Blue (A bonus was to use something soft - the pink ribbon is VERY soft!)

The second card is made with strips of paper, that are pieced together to resemble a hand stitched quilt. I'm not at all crazy about the card, but it fits a few challenges...

The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink.
I will enter this card here:


Crafty Creations Challenge: Black, White, and a touch of Red



All Sorts Challenge: Black, White, and one other color



Creative Inspirations: Sewing, or Faux Stitching

My last card is for the Simplicity 'One Layer Wednesday' Challenge.

The challenge was: Repetition (I think this will work :)

The stamps are Gina K. Designs

Have a great day everyone!

I had to come back. I noticed a link to "Paper Temptress" and it says that is cardstock for printing digi's ??? I haven't ever printed digi's on colored cardstock. Have you?? and do you know anything about it??
