Friday Fun # 68 and Friends With Flair Valentine

Happy Friday! I am so happy that Friday is finally here. This month, I will be the hostess of the Friday Fun Challenges and I am starting out with a bang, I tell ya. The challenge was inspired by a thread I was reading on Splitcoast about just using the basics for stamping. It made me think of the days right after I discovered stamping when all my supplies would fit in ONE drawer. Crazy, right? But I still loved stamping so much back then even without all the latest and greatest tools. So the Friday Fun Challenge is:

Back to Basics- Remember when you first started stamping and all you had was card stock, ink and stamps? it’s time to put away our fancy toys and patterned paper and make a card with the very basics.

So for this challenge you are limited to the following:

Stamps: As many as you like

Ink: up to 3 colors (not counting black or brown)

Paper: up to 3 colors of card stock plus one neutral; NO patterned paper.

Coloring medium: You can use ONE coloring medium (markers, pastels, pencils, etc.)

Embellishments: ONE kind. You can use more than one of the same kind…(5 brads, two ribbons, etc.) but only ONE kind.

NO Nestabilities but punches are ok.


It was really hard- who knew I was SO addicted to Patterned Paper?? LOL Here is my card using Unity's set: I Ruff You

This is also my card for Unity's Friends with Flair. You can find all the FWF participants on the Unity Blog.
The other Friday Fun girls are sure to have some fabulous creations. I can't wait to see their take on this challenge. It's not easy, but it is FUN!
