March CHALLENGE is up

Deanne has "sprung" a brand new challenge for March :D
 Please check it out at the FSS CHALLENGE BLOG and get all the details on how to participate and get a chance to win another $20 GC!  Oh the girls' card are soooo pretty!  Go see! ;)

We will be picking winners today for the February Challenge AND for our BLOG HOP!  Thanks so much to all who participated! We will be posting the  winners here and at the Challenge Blog.

Here is a card I made to celebrate SPRING and the challenge!


  I used the FSS Digi Freebie being offered at the Operation Write Home's Star and Stamps Blog. "Tulips Trio"  The die cut frame was made using alcohol inks and the outer frame had distress inks sponged on (both die cuts are Spellbinders).  The tulips were coloured with coloured pencils/OMS and glittered with Diamond Stickles.  My new favourite thing ATM is pearl string!  I went and bought over 80 yards in ivory, white and irridescent pearl string. Am I nuts?  Yes LOL.  In case you are wondering how I get my pearls to stay good and stuck on my card.... Zip Dry Glue... that stuff is awesome!  Just a tiny thin line of the glue keeps the string in place and grabs and holds (and sets up) really quick!

Have a great day!
