Strawberry Fields Forever 46

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 18, 2010 @ 7:00 PM | , ,




Hello Friends! I need to shake my pom - poms & shout HURRAY from the rooftop - its' another football weekend in the Pendleton's home! That means while my hubby, Scott is in football Heaven, I am in papercrafting Heaven ;)

I was inspired to create this card for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenges, FTCC84 by several of my blogging friends. My dear friend Heather recently asked me if I had any Flourishes stamps in my collection - I was embarrassed to admit to her that I have owned some for several months now, just haven't inked them up but if you browse through my blog, you will see I have been a wee bit busy. I know excuses, excuses... My dear friends Silke, Kathy & Beate feed me with a weekly serving of Flourishes eye candy! These girls can color like nobody's business! I just drool over their cards...sigh...

The FTCC84 challenge is to incorporate the Spotlighting Technique when making your project. If you would like to view an awesome Spotlighting Technique tutorial written by Beate, click HERE. I am also entering this card in this month's SCS Dirty Dozen Totally Trendy gallery which focuses on all the latest trends in papercrafting. It seems Crinkled Seam Binding has become quite the rage & I confess, I am addicted myself.

I would like to share a few blogging awards I have recently received from several dear blogging friends. Both June & Ros passed this Friendly Blog Award on to me & I would like to offer them to all of my fellow bloggers as a lil' thank you for all the inspiration & encouragement that you continually share with me :)

This Beautiful Blogger award comes from my dear sweet friend Heather.

Thank you so much ladies for thinking of me - I cherish all the incredible friendships that I have made around the world all over the love of papercrafting ;)

Thanks for looking! Hope you have a lovely Sunday & find some time to enjoy yourself doing whatever you please :)
