Fabulous Friday

Good Morning!  Actually as you're reading this I am on way to Michigan visiting my cousin.  Please pray for safe travel for me.

Anyway, I got to cheat a little... my daughter participated in my friend Joni's challenge blog Raise The Bar and was selected to be a Guest Designer.  Yay for Hollyanne!  She was so excited.  But since she's the Guest Designer and I'm her Mom, I got to see the challenge a little ahead of time.  I'm so glad, too, because I rarely get to play.   So here's what I did with the sketch...

Continuing my week's orange theme, I pulled out one of my favorite stamp sets - the Spring Kit from All That Scraps and did a little paper piecing.  I am totally loving this card!

Please head on over to Hollyanne's blog and leave her a little comment love.

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pumpkin Pie
Paper:  Orange polka dots (Recollections)
Copics:  E00, E02, E29, Y17, YR16, YR20, YR23
Embellishments:  twill & grosgrain ribbons, flower (Recollections), button (my stash),
  embroidery floss

I had so much fun making this card!  I hope you enjoy it, too.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Melissa, this is gorgeous, love the orange colours on your card... I should try this. Congrats to Hollyanne too.. must take after her mum :)
PS Please tell Gabby that I'm thinking of her, and hoping that whatever it is, will be ok for her soon. I had sent her a thank you card, for sending me her adorable card and when I didn't hear from her had wondered if anything was wrong and then I saw your note in the blog.
Hugs xx
