Saturday is full of friendship!

Happy Saturday!
I've got a few things to share again today!
It's time for a new My Time Challenge. This week Lauren has chosen to do an inspiration which you can see below. Here is a collage of what the girl's have created!
Here is the Inspiration Piece:
I started off by selecting these colours....
Almost Amethyst, Sahara Sand, White and Black. I saw flower and a little bit of bling around the top of the dress.
So I decided to use a new stamp set from H & M Stamps called Seeds of Kindness.
Stamps: Seeds of Kindness; Cardstock: PTI white, Almost Amethyst, Sahara Sand, Black; Inks: Black and Almost Amethyst; Accessories: Nesties, Ribbon, Rhinestones, Eyelet Border Punch, Dimensionals
Stop by the My Time To Create Girl's Blogs:
I was so excited to see Taylors TECC67 sketch yesterday because I have been wanting to ink up the tie image from the Boys Will Be Boys stamp set. I've used the Father's Day Key Ingredient kit to put this card together. I LOVE how it all matches and takes the guess work out of making a card...lol
You can find all the stamps and KI kits at Taylored Expressions.
Stamps: Boys Will Be Boys; Cardstock: Buttercream, Prism, DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Black pen, Buttons, Linen Thread, Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals
The Limited Supply Challenge yesterday was called THAT'S a Holiday? Yep...you guessed it....we could choose any wacky holiday from the month of May and make a card about it. No other limits...which means there shouldn't be any rule breakers...right Denise ;)
I chose to do a card on the May 16th holiday called Love a Tree Day.
This Season of Friendship stamp set is a favourite of mine and I'll never ever part with it!
Stamps: Season of Friendship; Cardstock: Tangerine, Choc chip, WW and Hawaiian Papaya DP; Inks: Choc chip, Old olive, Kiwi kiss, Tangerine; Accessories: Mat pack and paper piercer, Curly label punch, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed what I had to share!

Wow 3 cards, again! YOu are good! I love the pretty colors of your first card. . .I haven't seen that Almost Amethyst color used in a long time. It's pretty!

Another awesome masculine card. Just perfect. . no frilly stuff. Everything is just right for a guy card.

When I look at your third card. . .it makes me feel guilty. You're so good at using your SU stamps. Whenever I drop by your blog, I'm reminded that I've been neglecting my SU stamps!! Arggh!!

As always your cards are AWESOME!!

Hope you enjoy your Mother's Day surprise!
