make a wish...

Happy Friday!!!

I have a couple cards to share today...first up is this seemingly clean & simple card..


The card base is some wonderfully textured Gmund Savanna cardstock that is 111 lbs of goodness...The damask is not just any damask but A Muse's Shimmer Couture Damask in Robin's Egg...talk about elegant....the shimmer is something that just doesn't show up in the pic but it's gorgeous....the damask panel has been matted with Stampin' Up Basic Gray...used a snippet of a doily...the sentiment is SRM and I glittered up my favorite Schossler Designs bird...

This is a multi-tasking card...I stumbled across Jay Gee's Nook....check out her inspiration challenge:


It's been on my mind since I first spotted it over on Courtney Baker's blog who happens to be the Guest Designer for the challenge!

I managed to combine it with the current EBTKS challenge:


AND this card is for the Moxie Fab World Diggin' on Damask Challenge...gotta love that!

Next up is a Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather project:


I gotta be honest, if you scan through my blog or my flickr, you won't see a whole lotta purples so this is a definite challenge for me BUT I'm always up for a challenge:)  What makes everything better?  BLING!  The ZVA flourishes add such a festive touch, dontcha think?  Did you see the new powerhouse ZVA design team...woot woot girls!!!



....yup, this is another project for the Cosmo Cricket December GDT...project #2!  There's a contest during the month of November to use Mitten Weather...You can enter as many times as you want but the December GDT spot will be random draw.  So I'm going to use up all my Mitten Weather goodness this month to see if I can possibly get picked for the GDT and if not, I'll be lucky to have that many more Christmas cards already done...win-win situation:)


Just a reminder that you have a week to link up for Flashback Friday 4.0!!!


The Flashback Friday winner will be a random draw on Saturday, November 13th.  I will contact the winner that day and if they accept the Guest DT spot they will get to pick the Flashback Friday 5.0 Challenge that will post on Friday, November 19th!
Our wonderful sponsor is Torendi...you don't want to miss out!!!!


Thanks so much for making your way through my ultra long post but psssttt.....I'm going to be celebrating my 3rd Blogaversary tomorrow and for the next 2 Saturday's....I'll be slinging out candy so you'll want to pop back tomorrow...
