Two Challenges Again!

Edited: I have added the picture I actually took with my camera and not my cell phone. I think it looks much better!

First off I need to apologize. My card is a tiny bit blurry. My daughter had to borrow my laptop this weekend because she is off to guard duty for the Air National Guards this weekend and needed it. It is the only computer I can load my pictures on at this time. So I took this picture on my phone and emailed it to myself.

Anyways, I found a new challenge to participate in. Its called Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. You can find them at I included a picture of their sketch above mine. As you can see I had to change mine up alittle. I had to put the top layer along the edges. Mine wouldnt fit on top. Also for my three mine things are connected. It is a teapot, creamer and sugar bowl. The flowers I put on them hide that a little I think. They are diecuts from a cricut. My good friend Joyce (hi Joyce!) came over and cut me out a bunch a few weeks ago. I have been thinking of ways to use them. I stamped them with a really old discontinued Ivy background stampin up stamp in regal rose. Then I ran it thru the cuttlebug with the swiss dot embossing folder. My favorite!!! It seemed a little plain still so then I sprayed it with my new favorite Memoires Mists Iridescent. Then I put the card together. It still seemed to all blend together so I applied pink liquid pearls to define them. For the rest of the card, I used a martha stewart bubbles punch and the teatime sentiment is on a tag I used with a nestibilities.

I sponged the edges of it and the card with regal rose ink. I also had to move the ribbon to a different spot. It just didnt fit at the bottom either.

I hope the girls over at Fussy and Fancy Fridays dont mind too much that I changed it.

The second challenge is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. This week is polk dots. So I used the black paper that is dotted with flowers and the swiss dot embossing folder and the bubbles all fit with polka dots. You can find them on my side bar. Just click on it and it will get you there.

I have the house to myself at last half of today. I am excited. It is so quite right now. Except every once in a while the kats tell me they want it but I say you have to wait. They dont like that much. But one of our kitties has a little problem every once in awhile and I dont want to deal with that this morning. And since its raining (AGAIN!) I cant put them outside. It sure was nice to have a sunny day yesterday.

Well, Happy Stamping!
