Fabulous You!


Happy Fabulous Friday everyone!!

My family has had a super-terrific week, and I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow during my mish-mash post 🙂 Right now, I’ve got something just as fun to share!

As you know, I’ve discovered all these fabulous online creative card challenges.. and today, I’m entering not one, but two!! I know… it’s soooo fabulously exciting that I just had to share!!

The first is a sketch challenge by The Paper Players.  I really liked the simplicity of the layout and I had the perfect stamp set for it, Fabulous You, by Stampin’ Up!  I just love this set.. and it has absolutely nothing to do with my love of fabulous shoes!! 🙂

The second challenge I’m entering is a colour challenge by colourQ.  Raspberries, vanilla, and espresso — what isn’t to love about that combination??  We all know my love of coffee and chocolate.. mmm chocolate.. chocolate and raspberries.. chocolate, raspberries and vanilla — but, enough about that, I must focus!!

Don’t you just LOVE this colour combination??

Click on either image to visit their websites.  You can play along in the challenges, see all the rules, AND see lots to inspire you to get your own creative juices flowing 🙂

And now for my creation!!! *drum roll, please*….
