Imagine

Those of you who visit my blog on a regular basis know that I love patterned paper. I think I could count on one hand the number of cards I have created over the last year that did not include some piece of it. That's why I love today's Blogger's Challenge! It is to create a project/card using PP. No problemo.

I combined the BC # 81 with kwernerdesign's Color Challenge this week. Aren't these fun colors?

I worked with paper from several companies: Bo-Bunny, Martha Stewart, Chatterbox, Basic Grey and Stampin' Up. I also decided to use a rub-on this week instead of stamps. I don't know about you, but I have a huge supply of rub-ons that never get touched. I love how this sentiment fit so well with the design and color scheme. Oh, and I almost forgot! The design comes straight from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #44, but it came via Nancy's iSTAMP site. While visiting her site recently, I was reminded of how much I too love this sketch. Thanks Taylor and Nancy!

Please take a few minutes to visit my fellow challenge bloggers. You'll find a list of their sites here.

TGIF!
