Free 4 All Challenge 76

Hello & Happy TGIF!!!

Finally, the weekend is here!
No special plans here but I know each week that passes we get one week closer to our vacation back home! :) Do you have any special or fun plans this weekend?

Well, today is the Free 4 All Challenge over at SCS and our hostess Jeanne themed it "Itty Bitty Flowers". Again, my mind went wandering off to Christmas!! LOL
I grabbed an old punch from my drawer called Spring Flowers Bouquet and punched 2 of them in Cherry Cobbler cardstock to make 1 poinsettia flower. I thought this process would be a quick & easy card but low and took me almost 2 hours to get this all worked out! LOL Then I punched out the leaves with my Fern punch from Martha Stewart and it decides to break on me and my glue gun just did not wanna heat up. I hope the rest of my day doesn't go quite like that!

Free 4 All Challenge 76 Card:

Stamps: PSX Sentiment
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Kraft/Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Neenah White
Accessories: MS Loopy Border Punch, MS Fern Punch, Spring Flower Bouquet Punch, Oueen & Co. Gold Beads, Glue Dots, Glue Gun, Gold Cord, Scor Tape

So, after 2 hours of making this card, i'm very happy with it! I'm really hooked on the Kraft/Crumb Cake cards this year! I know you'll be seeing more in the coming months! :)

Well, that's all I have for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day, friends!
