Good Morning!

Good Morning!
Here's a sneak peek of what the My Time Saturday Challenge girls have created!
This week Lauren is asking us to use one of her Timeless Templates and create a birthday gift that includes either a butterfly or is purple...or both...like I did! There are FREE templates available so give it a whirl!
For my sample I decided to use the FREE Recipe Wrap Up Template along with both purple and butterflies in my design! I'll be giving this to a friend who has an upcoming birthday...hope she will like it! I've used the Verve set called Beautiful Kindness.
Stamps: Beautiful Kindness; Cardstock: Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon, Vintage Cream and DP; Inks: Plum Pudding; Accessories: Oval Nesties, Scallop Edge Punch, Kaiser Rhinestones, May Arts Ribbon
Here is the inside. I printed off the calendar sheets and decorated each pocket with the Martha Stewart Layering Daisy Punch and a Kaiser Rhinestone.
Stop by to see what the others have created too:
Before heading out the door yesterday morning I took a quick peek to see what the Limited Supply Challenge was. I'm glad I did! It was to make a beachy card.
You had to use ONE imge that was beach related.
You could use ONE embellishment.
You could use ONE sentiment.
Of course you were supposed to limit the layers...if you could ;)
I used the super cute Sugarplum's Emma from All That Scraps and also AmyR's Beach Sentiments.
Stamps: Sugarplum's Emma, AmyR's Beach Sentiments; Cardstock: White, Saffron and DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Saffron Ribbon, Eyelet border punch, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
