Hello again, friends!!
I know, I know . . . I’ve been MIA. But it’s totally for a good reason!! I’ve been enjoying spending time with our oldest grandson for the last several days – we took him back home this morning. Boy is it quiet around here today! LOL But I have every intention of getting into my craft room this weekend – so look out!!
I do have a project to share for this week’s CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, which is: Create a CLEAN AND SIMPLE project and include some kind of bling – rhinestones, glitter, stickles (whatever you have in your stash that sparkles!) – in your design. Super awesome (as my two year old grandson would say, with the cutest little lisp), right?!
As is always the case for the first challenge of every month, Simon Says Stamps is once again our sponsor extraordinaire – and if you’ve never shopped with them before, you really MUST do it sometime soon! Their customer service is outstanding, and they carry just about every kind of crafting NECESSITY known to man – NO JOKE!! Not only will this week’s TGIF Winner win a fabulous prize provided by Simon Says Stamps (you’ll have to click on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is, though), but he or she will also get to be our Guest Designer. Thank you Simon Says Stamps!
I have to confess that I kind of cheated on this one. I happened to have a publication reject that was just sitting on my desk, waiting to be shared, and low and behold it fit the challenge – BONUS!! LOL I used Geo-Graphic from Paper Smooches (designed by ME!) for the hexagon layer. I then adhered some Stampin’ Dimensionals (because they’re shaped PERFECTLY to fit inside the stamped hexagons) randomly and sprinkled three different colors of Doodlebug Sugar Coating Glitter. The sentiment is from Year Round Sentiments from Hero Arts.
STAMPS: Geo-Graphic (Paper Smooches), Year Round Sentiments (Hero Arts)
INK: Black Dye Ink (Memories/Hero Arts), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER: Blue Raspberry CS (French Poptone), Solar White CS (Neenah Classic Crest)
OTHER: Sugar Coating Glitter (Doodlebug Designs), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Black Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts)
Well, that’s it for me today, friends. I have a stampy friend coming over to crop with me today – perhaps I’ll actually get something done! Thanks so much for stopping by today. Before I go, I’d highly recommend that you click on through to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog, as the other Girl Fridays, including our Guest Designer for June – Piali Biswas – have some TERRIFIC goodies to share with you! Have a great weekend!
