{DT Project Lady Anne's Paper Crafts: Challenge #7 - Friday Sentiments}

Its Friday yeah, and the weekend is ahead.  Hope you all got some nice crafty things to do, lined up for this weekend and of course some quality family time.

Our theme for the next monthly Challenge over at Lady Anne's Paper Crafts' Monthly Friday Sentiments Challenge is Anything Goes (but always have a sentiment).  How much easier can you get.  So I really hope you will play along.  The challenge will run from 22 February through to 28 March 2013.

I have used Alvin's Romance from Stamp n Doodle and you can purchase it here.    I have coloured them with Copic Markers and used dry chalks on the sentiment.  The sentiment is a freebie from TLC CREATIONS - Paulette.  The design papers are from FabScraps.  The paper flowers and buttons are from my stash.  I have also used an edge scraper to distress some of the papers around the image.

Looking forward to seeing you play along over at Lady Anne's Friday Sentiment Challenge #7.  The Challenge ends on 28 March 2013.

I would love to enter the following challenges with this:
Thank you again to my New and Faithful Followers for all the wonderful love you leave here.
Only 5 more Followers to go until my 500 Follower Give-Away!  Wishing you all a wonderful relaxing weekend with a bit of creativity on the side.

I became a follower. Now you have 3 to go. I love the way you do your center step cards. I've only done one or two of them. I looked at your tutorials and fell in love with the tri-shutter card you had for Dec. 24, 2012. I am definitely going to try that design. I did a bunch of tri-shutter cards for Halloween last year but I really like the additions of the extra layer. Glad I found your blog ( I was looking at entries from My Craft Spot Challenge; that's how I found you.)
