I can't believe the weekend is here already. The kids had off school yesterday and are off all next week, so I'm hoping that our warmer weather continues for them (and of course it is always nice to have warmer weather for the Easter Egg hunt, because looking for eggs while it cold (or worse yet snowing ~ which believe it or not, has happened before), isn't nearly as fun.
Today it's time for our weekly challenge at KLSNS. This week Kelly gave us a 1-2-3 challenge. 1 image/sentiment; 2 Designer Papers; 3 embellishments. These recipes are always fun, and as you can see, I took liberties with the 3 embellishments and used 3 different types of embellishments.
I had just received my monthly package of goodies from Kelly so of course I had to dig right in and get to work! I picked this sweet Stampavie Stamp ~ Isabelle with Puppy Coco. I already know this is one stamp my daughter will be using as well ~ she loves dogs and we had a dog named Coco until January of last year. I used some Basic Grey papers from one of their newest stacks, Green at Heart ~ and if you haven't seen these papers yet, you need to check them out ~ they are absolutely gorgeous! And did you notice that rose in the center of the larger flowers ~ this is one of the Mini Roses by Prima ~ they come in a pack of 24 with 3 assorted colors ~ love these!
Now quick question for you ~ when looking at pictures of cards, which view do you like better, the first picture where the card is slightly angled, or the second picture where the card is pretty much straight on?
Visit the KL Stamping N Scrappin blog for all the challenge details and to see some wonderful eye candy from the rest of the Design Team. We would love to have you join in on the fun and enter this weeks challenge!
