Happy Saturday!

I was tidying up my pictures file and realized I never posted the projects from PCP's 3D-151 and 152 challenges (the current challenge is 154).

Challenge 151 was to create a milk carton. I used the template that was provided in the challenge thread.

Supplies used: Barely Banana, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limade, and GP White CS, Calypso Coral Ink, Fruit Punch Stickles, EK Success Flower Punches, MS Butterfly, Fence & Grass Punches, Marianne Designs Dies, and Purple Daisy Designs Flower Stamps (bought them at StampFest).

Challenge 152 was to create a shaker card. I made a side-step shaker.

Supplies used: Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, and Naturals White CS, Versafine Onyx Black, Satin Red, Smokey Gray, and Vintage Sepia Inks, SU Sentimental Journey & Vintage Labels, and WPlus9 Guiding Light Stamp Sets.

A 50th Birthday Card

Happy Saturday!

My friend, Lucy, so loved this card that I sent her for her birthday this year, that she asked me to make a similar one that she could send to her sister for her 50th birthday. Lucy requested purple and fuschia, with lots of bling. Lucy told me she gasped when she opened her card and wants the same effect when her sister opens hers.

The card I made for Lucy was 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Today's card is 5 3/4 x 5 3/4. I think the sentiment (created in Word using RGB values for Melon Mambo) should be on the front, but Lucy wanted it on the inside.

Supplies used: Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, and Rich Razzleberry CS, Basic Grey PP & retired SU PP DSP, Pink Pirouette & Rich Razzleberry Taffeta Ribbon, MS Border Punch, Sizzix Daisy Die, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Flower Garden Embossing Folder, & Swirls Sizzlit, Spellbinders Scalloped Oval Dies, and lots of Rhinestones.

I had to mail the card to Lucy in NY, who in turn will be mailing it to her sister. So, I decorated a box, placed the card inside with pink tissue paper, and sent it in a padded envelope.

Chocolate lovers may recognize this as a Godiva box. Gotta love recycling/repurposing!
