I haven’t participated in the Fab Friday Challenge since before Convention so I figured it was about time I checked them out. This week was a color challenge and I loved all the colors they picked. The problem is that I got a little carried away with my Framelits in this card. I used the Circles Collection Framelits, Secret Garden Framelits and the Deco Label Framelits! That is a lot of Framelits but I love them! They are just so easy to use. No more cutting out tedious shapes like flowers or leaves. You just stamp and run it through the Big Shot. It can’t get much easier than that.
The stamp for the sentiment is from the stamp set called Really Good Greetings. I knew I had to have this set the second I saw it because of this exact stamp. Whenever my boys leave after a visit we send each other this message by text so it has a lot of meaning for me. It also has another stamp that says “Everything will be OK, even if we can’t see what OK is yet”. I love that!
For the Fab Friday Challenge this week, I used the stamp set called Happy Hour with a couple of the new In Colors. What other colors could you possibly use with this stamp set but Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana? Both of them definitely go with an umbrella drink!
My mother bought me (oh yes, she is 88 so she is forgiven) a card and I thought it was very cute so I made one similar to it. I found the colors of this week’s Fab Friday Challenge to be a challenge! Here are the colors:
How appropriate that I decide to do my first Fab Friday Challenge when it is Fab Friday Challenge 13. If you have been reading my blog you will have noticed that I am starting to participate in Challenges. It is a great way to get different ideas for layouts and colors. Here is this week’s Fab Friday Challenge:
Fab Friday Challenge 13
For this challenge I decided to man a masculine card using The Open Sea. This set was supposed to retire a year ago or so and so many people requested it stay that Stampin Up brought it back. It is a great set to use for the men in your life.
