Happy FRIDAY all!  

First off I want to say MAHALO for the FAB group of entries we had this past challenge!  We are so happy to have you join us, and to see lots of you who come every challenge!  You must be spreading the word because we have visitors from all over the globe, SUPER!!!

If you are ready for some relaxing time crafting over the weekend, here is a great challenge for you.  Over at Chocolate, Coffee & Card Challenges we have a fun theme for you, this great sketch:

I REALLY enjoyed this layout, I know I'll be using it again real soon!  

Our super sponsor this week is one of my absolute favorites, Bugaboo Stamps!  Their images never disappoint!  And so many great images to choose from.  I chose this adorable little gal called "Girl Flower Sitter".  (The wall she is sitting on is another stamp I have, and I decided to sit her on it to give it a bit more balance.)  She is colored with my Copic's, and I added the layers with a bit of solid background paper to give it some punch and zip!  The flowers were all done using paper punches, then I added pearls from my stash.  Also there are two layers of ribbon under the larger flowers.  All in all I was very pleased with this one.  I think it will be used for a Mother's Day card for my Aunt!

So grab a cuppa, relax and get your mojo working!  Have fun with this awesome sketch!


  1. Aloha, Joanne, hope it's not too hot over there for you today. It's pretty chilly here, I forgot to wrap up warmly when I went out earlier (well, it IS May so I automatically expected milder weather, silly me) and I was absolutely frozen! Mahalo for your super-nice comment the other day....i would gladly give you copic classes, cos crafting and colouring in Hawaii sounds pretty much like heaven to me, lol. I can but dream!

    Love your gorgeous card, the layout is certainly a nice one. The sprinkling of tiny flowers on the image is a lovely touch, I do like the dimension they bring plus they're so pretty, especially with the little pearl centres. I gotta get me a tiny flower punch!! Have a great weekend, it's our May Day bank holiday weekend, which means a long weekend for most people. CoB

  2. Awww this is so cute Joanne! I love that Bugaboo image!! Gorgeous colors, paper & flowers!!
    Hugs, Tammy
