Been a while since I did a Friday Mashup ...
so I thought why not give it a try...
so here is the challenge
make sure you stop by their site and give it a try.
Sketch by: Erica
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the "Sketch".
  2. Create a "Birthday" project.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Birthday project using the Sketch"
so here is my try ...
I used a clear piece of plastic to make the square
then pop it up and then I cut the flower that match the one below
then pop the flower on the plastic...and cut two little flowers
and did the same to them ...

Ok Nina put up another challenge for us ladies....
Cuttlebug Embossing with wax paper...
so here are my attempts and ladies
let me tell you this was a challenge ...
I had to borrow wax paper from neighbour
that's right ..bought some from the dollar store ...really no wax to speak of
Bare the went to Safeway for me and got some was microwavable...
then I talked to my neighbour ...who said come see me if you can't found the good stuff.
So over I went ...she gave me a few ideas...
and a piece of really wax paper here are my tries
I must say the dark ink looked good..
you can see where the wax  marks are and how nice it showed up..
had to give some other embossing folders I had
a try
then in
and this like the first two ...but done in red ...
I have to say the red was my first try at the challenge
just did not seem able to put it into a card
but I will try ...with the others I made to create something...
all paper used was Recollections card stock
Misc ribbons...flower on green card..from Nina
Now make sure you stop by
Nina and Barb
