Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!
I'm glad it's the weekend but I'm not so happy about our weather :( This cold and snow is getting OLD...ugh!
This was the birthday card I made for my husband! I really like how it turned out. I've been wanting to use some big chipboard and UTEE ever since I saw Amy Sheffer do it on a card months ago!
The chipboard was covered in Not Quite Navy Ink and then two layers of UTEE were added.
Stamps: Happy Everything; Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, WW and Maine Blueberry DP; Inks: NQN, Old Olive, Versamark; Accessories: Chipboard, UTEE, Word Window Punch, EK success wavy border punch, old olive ribbon, Paper snips, dimensionals, silver elastic cord
Julee has the mojo sketches up each Monday but with the sneak peeks and a few other things this week I didn't have time to play along until yesterday morning. This card is a SU! only and made for Mojo76.
Stamps: Simple Friendship; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, WW and Washington Apple DP; Inks: Blacks, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie; Accessories: Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Paper Piercer, Paper snips, Dimensionals
Since I had the supplies out I thought I'd use the same basic ones to make an ATC card for the Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS. This ATC measures 2.5 x 3.5.
Stamps: Simple Friendship; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, WW and Washington Apple dp; Inks: Black, Pumpkin Pie and Riding Hood Red; Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Riding Hood Red Satin Ribbon, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Paper snips, dimensionals

These are GREAT! Your husband is going to LOVE his birthday card. Those big shinny numbers are too cool, and those papers are perfect.

Of course, I love the big butterfly on the other card and ATC...SUCH pretty colors.

You rock, girl!!

Dawn, the "40" card is really cool. I haven't tried Utee yet. I love the butterfly cards.
Sorry to hear about the weather.... today is going up to
16C AND sunny. Hope it gets rid of the rest of the snow. Think Spring.
