Young Love....

Happy Friday to you all!

Hope you have plans for a nice, relaxing weekend.  I'm thinking ours might actually be quiet - looking forward to that!

I have a very quick post to share with you today.  My card features "Young Love" by Mo Manning.  I created this for the challenge (use black and yellow) over at the Stamping Bella Blog.  This is my first time to enter, so hope I did everything right - never know about me!



Cardstock is all A*Muse, and all coloring is done with Copic Markers.  Hmmm...used a few dimensional squares by Recollections (Michaels). Hope it makes you smile - I just love this cute little couple!  Guess I'm going to have to add some Stamping Bella stamps to my wish list!


Next up - you know that I don't often 'brag' when I am lucky enough to have a publication.  Sorry, folks - this time, I simply must brag!  Several months ago, I saw a publication call for CardMaker Magazine, to create a project using a photograph.  Sheesh, I'm such a bad photographer that I thought there was no hope for me. Then I thought about our DD, who is a WONDERFUL photograper, and together, we came up with a beautiful photo of DD's to use. So...I submitted my card, with black and white photo, and it was not only accepted, but they asked for another with sepia tones and one with full color.  I'm sure by now you are 'getting it'.  It's not the publication that is SO exciting, it is the fact that it was a project that came from us both. So, as you are perusing your July CardMaker, check out page 39 quickly, and then turn to pages 66 & 67 to see Melissa's fabulous photograph!

Hugs and blessings to you all!

Check back tomorrow to see if you are the winner of one of Adela's wonderful templates!

Awesome card - imagine you two in a "few"years. Loved the photo layout in CardMakers Mag - I just couldn't wait until mine came in the mail. Great job to both you and DD.

A big congratulations on your successful publication. It is amazing that they asked for more. You should be proud!

Your Bella card is adorable. Love all that yellow. Good luck with the challenge.

I've got many SB stamps and every week I say I'm going to do their challenges. Good for you for getting out there and doing it.

Thanks for the welcome back. It is nice to be amongst friends again.
