It’s time for Scrap it Girl’s Favorite Things Friday!

This week, it’s washi tape!
Here are my “go to” favorites, the MOST fave being the pointing hand.

I love washi because it’s easy to use and adds such fun elements to my cards and scrapbooks.
Do you have a favorite washi? If so, share it with Scrap it Girl
Thanks for stopping by, and God bless!

I’m always excited for the Scrap It Girl Favorite Things Friday! It gives me a challenge to create something fun.

Today I’m blogging from my tiny crafting corner in my RV, somewhere on the east coast just steps away from a long pier where manatees and dolphins frolic in the sea. It’s a sweet spot, if only for a while, then it’s back to reality!
Speaking of reality, let’s get back to it!
This Friday’s assignment is to use our favorite embossing folder.
Mine is Beautifully Baroque from Stampin’ Up!

It adds such elegance to a card.
I used it with Graphic 45 paper, the Place in Time collection.
Here’s my finished card.

Hope you enjoy it and maybe get a bit of inspiration to join the fun! If so, just click HERE and add your creation!
Thanks for stopping by, be blessed!

It’s time for the monthly challenge for Scrap it Girl!
The May 2014 challenge for SIG designers is to create a layout or card using a choice of Mother’s Day or Mother Nature. I had this card in mind and decided to give it a whirl.

My mom as well as mother in law have both passed so I’m hoping a friend might need this little card.
I used all Stampin Up products to make the card and lined envelope. Here’s the list:
Whisper white card stock
Ink: Pistachio Pudding Crisp Cantaloupe Summer Starfruit Coastal Cabana Island Indigo
Stamps: (retired, but you can choose more here!)
Blessings from Heaven
Delightful Dozen
Best of Butterflies
Chevron Embossing folder
Spiral flower die (FUN!!)
Big Shot
Rhinestone jewels
5/8 organza ribbon
Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper
I did notice one boo-boo, and that is the pretty envelope- this card really needs a handmade box due to the 3D rose! Oh well, it’s the thought that counts, right?
With two grown kids, two in-law kids and 3 grandLittles, I’m looking forward to Mother’s Day this year.
I hope you have a happy and blessed Mother’s Day too!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless,
Kathy Bo
