Friday posting

It's been a busy week for me - I didn't get a chance to participate in the weekly OWH tutorial or Mid week throwdown, because I got caught up in organizing my craft space....again.  It all started at Staples where I found this wire bin.  It fits my Distress Inks perfectly and the bin fits perfectly into a 12x12 shelving unit I got from Target a few years ago.
That made me rearrange what I had on my desk and shelves and so I didn't have any time to make cards.  I discovered some paper that would be great for cards - that's always a good thing.
I used up the last of the papers from the May SSS card kit for this card:
Today's posting on the OWH blog was dedicated to Jane E, who passed away recently.  Her cards are posted on the blog and they're beautiful!  We certainly will miss her creativity and we were challenged to case one of her cards.  I wanted to CASE them all, but chose her watercolor card, because I had the same stamp:
I used a Tim Holtz background stamp with Shaded Lilac and then stamped the floral stamp in Crushed Olive over it.  I used a punch for the tiny flowers with Liquid Pearls as the center dots. 
I took a trip to Hobby Lobby and bought the new OWH stamps!
Sandy was right - the stamps were put at the bottom of the rack.  These that I found were in the ink section.  Poor little lost stamps....but I found 'em anyway!
One of my cards was selected to be in the Top 5 over at the FCCB Challenge #158.  Woo hoo!  It's always a good feeling to get a pat on the back.  Thanks FCCB!
Our school's annual band banquet is coming up soon and I'll be busy making decorations.  I hope to post them on my blog.  I discovered that someone pinned the placecards I made a few years ago.  That was a surprise!
Hope you have a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Erika -- Great job on casing Jane's card. The background stamp added a nice background for the flora stamp. I like the color combo you used too. I haven't seen the new stamps from Hobby Lobby -- now that you shared yours -- I am gonna have to get me one of those. Thanks for sharing your wonderful card. Yes, please share your banquet decorations and congrats on your card being selected in the the Top 5.
