Fab Friday Challenge - Painted Petals


Lucky you! I have another post for today :)  I was looking through the challenge pages I have saved on my ipad and thought, I haven't tried one in awhile.   Well, get ready!  I have about 4 challenges I want to enter before the end of the week! :)  You might get double posts all week!

The challenge I'm sharing today is from the Fab Friday blog.  You can find it here along with the design team's samples.  It's a subtles color challenge.  Sure makes you think Spring! 


Here is my card that I based off of the colors.  I absolutely LOVE the Painted Petals stamp set.  It's probably my favorite and most used set from the Occasions Catalog. 


I kept the inside fairly simple - but I like to stamp the inside to make it special too! 


 The sentiment I chose from the set means a lot to me.  For the 9+ years that I served in the military, 6 of them were away from any relative.  Our friends truly became our family.  We lived in Arkansas, Alaska & Nevada - and my husband and I both spent time in the Middle East.  
I will always cherish each friendship!


The front was sprayed with some "smooch spritz" that I found spring cleaning last week!  I forgot all about this stuff!  SU! should totally bring it back :)  

I hope you enjoyed this extra post - thanks so much for stopping by and thanks to the design team at FF for the challenge!!
