Love and a Basket

Happy Friday!

I'm very much looking forward to the weekend! It's been a cold and busy week here. Tonight we have dinner with friends and a kid free evening and then this weekend we are celebrating my daughter's birthday with family and friends. I'm hoping to spend Sunday stamping, we'll see how that turns out. Hope you have a great weekend planned too!


Today we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Something. Our challenge is "Love Somethings" and our sponsor is Bunny Zoe Crafts. If you haven't been to Nikki's shop, you need to hop on over and check out her fabulous selection of crafting goodies!

I tried to use some products that you can find at Bunny Zoe Crafts in my card today. I've used my Whimsy Love You Mice stamp and some DCWV papers with sketch from Friday Sketchers last week. I used the Martha Stewart lace punch on the edging and embellished with Prima flowers, brads, and sticky gems, some stickles and a wire heart.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Charisma Cardz - I Love You
Cute Card Thursday - Spots and Dots
Creative Card Crew - Valentines
Papertake Weekly - Love Actually


Next, I have my Just Magnolia challenge project to share with you. This week is our special monthly challenge with a fab tutorial for creating a basket with designer paper.

I've used some Stampin' Up! paper and used the tutorial to weave a basket together. Then I embellished with flowers and roses, ribbon, and a dragon fly charm. I also used my Martha Stewart lace punch again. My image is Tilda with Tag and she's been colored with copics and cut out and adhered to the basket. To get a good picture I laid the basket on it's side, plus I was fresh out of candy so my basket is empty anyway.

Be sure to stop by Stamp Something and Just Magnolia this week to check out the samples my fellow design team members have created and if you have some time, we hope you'll join in the challenges too! Have a great weekend! Happy stamping!
