FRIENDS ARE LIKE FLOWERS

{DT Project Lady Anne's Paper Crafts: Challenge #4 - Friday Sentiments}

We are flying to Port Elizabeth this morning with British Airways from OT Airport here in Johannesburg.  Looking forward to taking the wedding pics for a family wedding tomorrow morning and then setting up {Doing Life} shop, tomorrow afternoon, at Evergreen just outside of Port Elizabeth.  I will be teaching a scrapbooking class on Sunday morning at this 2-day scrapbook conference. I will be MIA for a few days, but will be back at full steam in blog land next Tuesday.

Our theme for the next fortnight Challenge over at Lady Anne's Paper Crafts' Bi-weekly Friday Sentiments Challenge is Girlie with a twist to add Flourishes & Swirls (but always have a sentiment).  How much easier can you get.  So I really hope you will play along.

The Uptown Cutie digi is from DigiStamps4Joy and you can find her here  The flower embellishments were created with Scalloped Square Punches and here is the link to the tutorial on my blog.  She was coloured with H2O's.  and its a tent card design. 

Looking forward to seeing you play along over at Lady Anne's Friday Sentiment Challenge #4.

  


I would love to try the following challenges with this:

  1. One Stitch at a Time: Use a digi (3/3 entry)
  2. The Squirrel and The Fox: Use a Ribbon
  3. ABC Challenge: New to You (first time I have used this DS4J digi image)
  4. Lady Anne's: Anything Goes
  5. Make it Monday: Anything Goes
