FM132 with some Connie & Mary!


It has been a crazy week in my house and I could use about 72 hours straight of sleep. I'm a day late getting my Friday Mashup project posted but that's okay Better late then never right?

This week our hostess is Liliana and she's asking us to use the Color Orange and/or some Leaves. I love the new Sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary so I had to use that as well.



I started with a Daffodil Delight card base and then I added a layer of Early Espresso Core'dinations casrd stock that I embossed with the Woodgrain folder and then sanded. I punched out a 2 1/2" circle on the left side. 


I stamped three leaves from Wonderfall in Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso & Early Espresso Then I fussy Cut them. I adhered them together with dimensionals and added a Designer Natural Button to the center with a glue dot. I threaded the center of the button with some twine. I ran a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock through the Big Shot using the square lattice folder, then wrapped it with some more twine. 


I stamped the sentiment "Thanks" from the new Photopolymer set Another Thank You in Early Espresso on Whisper White and then created a Banner and added it behind the button. 


Head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week and we hop you will play along.. The challenge is open until Wednesday Oct. 23rd at 6pm EST.. You can join the fun using the Create w/ Connie & Mary Sketch as well until Wednesday at 12pm EST. 

Here's a pix of my Photography assistant today...
