Getting Crafty on a Friday Night

My summer quarter ended on Friday (I got an "A" whoo hoo!), just in time for me to participate in Friday Night Challenge over at SOC.  I have been buried in academic articles and writing assignments for ten weeks, so the opportunity to get crafty was a welcome respite!  My dear friend Shirley hosted the challenges on Friday night and I managed to get each one finished, and on time!

Challenge #1 - Create a card to send to a friend. have at least 2 layers, an image and embellishments of your choice. The image can be a sticker, stamp or digi. Don't stress, you can draw the image. Just relax and enjoy the process of creating.
Challenge #2: Create a card to send Wedding Best Wishes to a relative, friend, etc. You must have at least one heart or the word ‘heart’ displayed, a sentiment an at least 3 embellishments.  You can make a card for new job, new house, sympathy...whatever your friend is in need of receiving love and hugs about.   I kind of missed the instructions about the three embellishments on this one!

Main challenge: card, LO, bookmark... any creation that expresses your love.

It felt really good to do some crafting and make a teeny, tiny dent in my stash. Hope to be able to keep up the momentum, at least until Fall quarter begins in three weeks! Time will tell!

Thanks for looking!
