Take A Deep Breath....

...and relax--it's the weekend!!! Happy Friday friends! I played along in the My Favorite Things challenge for July's GD spot. I've tried out every month since Feb. and not gotten picked for anything, but hey--it's totally fun and if you don't try you never know if you might have gotten it! That's my motto, so I've tried again and this time I used my mini MFT set called Serenity Now. I think it's such a cute image, even though I don't do yoga...I should even if only for the cute outfits, haha! I paper pieced this gals yoga pants, top and mat with some pretty designer paper from Kaiser Craft (thanks Pushpa for introducing me to it!) called "Jubilee". The rest doesn't need to be explained...except you may wonder why I didn't put 2 more jems in the ticket punched corners. Well, that's simple-I ran out of em! And I didn't care that much at that point, I only had about 9 minutes to upload the card before the challenge ended.

Again, all the entries are fantastic in so many ways! You should check them out HERE. I love that they have them all posted in one gallery on SCS for all to enjoy! My pal, Jessie rocked this one and I have a huntch that she'll be the big winner, but I also adored JenMarie's card-sooooo lovely and congrats on 10 years of marriage!--and Christina Fitcher's creations were once again fantabulous!--not to mention Mothermark's brilliant comedy scene...c'mon, that lady rocks!--and Elizabeth Neuman created a masterpiece...are you beginning to see why I never win? There you have it.

Oh Linsey, your too sweet! Your card is BEAUTIFUL I absolutely adore the fresh colors and layout. I didn't enter to win, I just knew it would go with the challenge. I just like playing along. Plus I wanted to see if my DH was wrong about it looking like a funeral, lol! And it looks like he was, although I did get a comment from someone thinking it was a casket pillow....how odd is that?

I love the yoga set - an you've done a marvelous job with it Linsey! And you put the gems in opposite corners and left the others open because that's Feng Shui (sp??!!) NOT because you ran out of them! Good luck!
