Card Recognition

Sunday, May 1, 2011

hello


Hello!  I've got a blog birthday to celebrate and I've got a few fun prizes up my sleeve.  Since I'm still playing with my blog candy list, I think I'll borrow Emily's idea and just hide the prizes in the next week's posts.  So, please become a follower and check back with me this week to see what I've got in store.  My first hint is that this post will be connected to a small Two Peas Gift Certificate.

Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #7 had me grabbing Lawn Fawn Just My Type.  And I had in the back of my mind that I wanted to try to play along with Kristina's Finally Friday Challenge, make your own banner. This week's Wee Memories Challenge is paper piercing and I've cut out the typewriter and sheet of paper, so let's add this little card to their challenge.  Since I'm celebrating my blog's one year birthday it's fun to look back and see that I've entered Jenny's challenges 47 times in the last year and the first one was exactly one year ago, click here to see my first Wee Memories cards.


Materials: Lawn Fawn Just My Type typewriter, Studio G alphabet letters, Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper, Verafine Black ink, Tim Holtz Distressing ink Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 1, white gel pen, Baker's Delight twine
