it's good to have a hobby...

 Happy Friday!

Can you believe that it is almost mid-January?!

Here's a happy card filled with fun colors.


The sculptured flower is from the very lovely Karen Baker...The string is recycled from a Lawn Fawn order:)

My colors were inspired by the latest CR84FN45:


My bloggie friend li-bee-ti alerted me to a fun challenge over at Get Creative:


It's to design a card with a tag that is the focal point!  My card fits perfectly for the challenge!  Thanks li-bee-ti!!!!

I hope you have a FAB Friday!!!

Ooh, gorgeous! I LOVE that color combo. So eye catching with the pop of blue and orange. Love it mixed with the kraft and the embossed card base. :)
I was just thinking how quickly this month is flying by, too. Why does each day seems just a little bit shorter than the previous? Scary!
