SISTERHOOD & Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

MID-WEEK means two DT challenges for me!
First I'd like to share my creation for THE SISTERHOOD OF CRAFTERS Challenge. Today we are playing with Tips, Techniques & Tutorials and our very talented Sistah ... Tanis has requested we make a 3x3 Note Card Box or Treat Box. If you need assistance, you can get the details HERE using this youtube Video.

 I'm not very good at making "projects" such as this but I have to admit this was a lot of fun and I will be making up a few more sets to keep on hand for "quick gifts".

I used 110# raspberry cardstock for the box and Basic Grey Euphoria designer paper to decorate the lid and base of box.  

Here is the recipe:
Stamps:  Hero Arts, Wordsworth
Papers:  Raspberry cs, Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Grey Euphoria dp
Inks:  Versafine black, Versamark
Accessories:  chalk, cotton balls, Nestabilities classic & scallop ovals, Fiskars Apron Lace border punch, Creative Memories black round tip marker

Please be sure to check out the wonderful creations my "Sistahs" have created to help inspire you!  You can find links to each of their blogs on my sidebar.

My other challenge today is for Penny's Paper-Craft Challenge.  Today we are playing with  

SHAPES ... as in a shaped card or other shaped project.

We also have a very gracious sponsor for our challenge this week!  Please check out BUSY BEAUTIES BOUTIQUE!  One LUCKY winner will receive a $15.00 gift voucher ... it could be YOU!!!  So why not join in on the fun!!!

 I chose to use the Scallop Heart Nestabilities for my base card today and Basic Grey Euphoria dp for the background.  Isn't this "BBB" couple adorable ... they looked like they were ready for a little "smooch" ... hence the love/heart theme.  

Here is the recipe:
Stamps:  Busy Beauties Boutique, Flourishes
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Grey Euphoria dp
Inks:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  Nestabilities classic & scallop hearts, Fiskars swivel craft knife, Prismacolor markers, Darice satin ribbon, gold Pilot marker
We had an AMAZING turn out for last challenge ... we would love to see you again for this challenge.  Remember you have TWO weeks to complete & upload your creation.  Be sure to check out my co-team members creations for added inspiration.  Their blogs are listed on my sidebar.

Thanks so much for the visit!  I've been a bit delinquent with my blog posting ... sorry!  I've been dealing with Rotater Cuff Tendinitis in both shoulders which is a bit painful and has slowed me down a bit in crafting and typing!  Therapy is helping so I'll be back in full swing very soon I hope!    PLUS ... Blogger was playing games with me last evening and I couldn't get my photos uploaded ... they must have gotten a lot of complaints because things were back to normal today!
