Anything Goes with My Favorite Things

Happy Friday!

Wow, what a busy week. So sorry I didn't post all week. I've been busy working and hanging at home with the kiddos and we've had company all week too. Hope you have had a good week.

Today is new challenge day over at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something! And both challenges are rather easy and fun, so no excuses not to play along!

First up is my card for the challenge at Stamp Something. This week the theme is "Anything Goes - just stamp something!" And we are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps! One lucky participant will win a $15 gift certificate to the shop and can use it to buy anything she likes!

I've decided to use a new KennyK rubber stamp on my card, this is Download Diva. I've colored her with Copics in some soft pastel-ish colors. The layout is from Sketch Saturday and was paired with BG Olivia and MME Lost and Found papers. I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then embellished with flowers and sticky pearls. The sentiments are from the Friendship Ticket set and were cut with the Whimsy Shapeology Ticket Die.

This card fits at:
AiFactory - anything goes
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - pink, green
Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes

This week our Just Magnolia and Hanglars too challenge is to use "My Favorite Things" and either a Magnolia or Hanglar and Stanglar stamp. I've used another Hanglar that I had in my stash from Deb.

I've colored my image with Copics and then add some Stickles for shimmer. The papers are Fancy Pants and have been distressed with scissors. I've also used the MS hearts border punch. I've embellished with flowers, a glittery heart and button, some ribbon, and a Love Letter Seals sentiment.

This card fits at:
Do You Stack Up? - distress it
Pals Paper Arts - Valentine
Stampin' B's - use a die cut
Stampavie and More - glitter
Oldie But Goodie Challenge - bright & cheerful

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a marvelous Friday! I will be back at midnight tonight to share my Digi Bells Blog Hop creation! The hop is showcasing a brand new Elisabeth Bell digital stamp! Hope you will pop back over later tonight or tomorrow!
