Hello, happy crafters! Hope you’ve had an awesome week! It’s the first Friday of the month and that means it’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft For The Craic! I’m excited to share my GD inspiration project for the August Include a Triangle Shape challenge! I was in a ‘pink’ kind of mood and created a very feminine and flowery friendship card.


Most of the supplies I used on this are from Stampin’ Up! – cardstock, paper, ink, punches and rhinestones. The gorgeous doily is a Cheery Lynn die and so much classier than most pre-cut doilies. I just got the Tim Holtz Tag Press that I was anxious to use, and I love it! The little bouquet of flowers is also a TH product that is new in my stash. :)


I decorated in the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock from the front and stamped a simple sentiment on the layered panel. I’m really happy with how this turned out. :)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. What a great I love your DP’s and they look great together. I like the doily behind the triangle – looks perfect there. That tag press is interesting, reminds me of something that was out years ago. Hmm I will have to see if I still have mine.
