Forever Friends

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! We are having sunny skies here after a tough weekend. Luckily we never lost our power through the tropical storm though a lot of our town is still without power. I am hoping that a lot of the gardens in my yard "pop back" after all the rain and wind. This is the week I start back to school and will be happy to see all the kiddos again.

This week we have a really fun challenge for you over at
                                            Going Grey with Scrap-Creations

We would like you to Decorate the INSIDE of your Card. Now many of you may already do this if not give it a try. I made a card for a boy so I kept the inside of the card on the minimal side. I do have that cute friend saying and put the first half of it on the outside and the second half of it on the inside. The swirly circle that they are on is actually a ribbon slide. Don't you just love when you can use your craft stuff for multiple design elements.

Be sure to check out what the other ladies created to inspire you this week they are gorgous both inside and out!

Here are some other fantastic challenges that fit my card

2 Sisters Challenge #54-Boys and their toys
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C102-Male Themed Creations
Heart Song Inspirations Challenge #13-Anything Goes or favorite color combo, I picked Anything Goes
Send A Smile 4 Kida Challenge-Punches and Diecuts 4 Kids
Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #104-recipe, I used ribbon, buttons, and a circle swirl
Stamps R Us Challenge-Anything Goes
Just Add Ink Challenge JAI82-Something From Your Stash-mine is these buttons

These are all fabulous challenges so be sure to stop by and play along or just check out their wonderful inspiration they have for you!

Thank you for stopping by today to see what I have created. I really appreciate all the wonderful comments that you leave for me to read.

Happy Creating,
Mary C
