Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #18

This is my last card as Guest Designer for Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog. Geri was the hostess and wanted us to make a Friendship card.



I hope you don't think this card is too "busy" with all the different DPs from the Basic Grey Sugared paper pad. I used one of the sketches from Page Maps, a favorite site of mine for card layouts. The clock, from the MFP Take Time and Father's Day set, is stamped with Versafine Sienna on the pink and then cut out with a scalloped circle Nestabilities die. The rest is pretty self-explanatary.


You'll have to take my word for it that these salt & pepper shakers relate to my card. They are from London, and one of those pictures is of Big Ben.

Stamps - Mark's Finest Papers - Take Time and Father's Day
Paper - Basic Grey Sugared DP (underlying card base is MFP Snow Storm Smooth)
Ink - Versafine Sienna
Accessories - Clear ep, Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Oval punches

You know, I stopped into a thrift store a couple of days ago...and looked for a fun set of S&P shakers for you! haha. Although, if I find a set that is really neat, I might have to keep them for myself! haha

Great card, Lois! The papers are superb! Those salt & pepper shakers from London are perfect for your card. And, Big Ben couldn't be any better for your creation.
