Joanne B's Blogaversary Challenge!


I've had this DARLING...gasp...in  my stash for at LEAST a month or two and haven't inked her up yet!!  May I introduce, Emma and Her Backpack.  Adorable deliciousness from Heather Ellis for MFT.  

I have wanted and wanted and WANTED to ink her up but the mojo has not struck...until today!  My darling IRL girlfriend, Joanne B, is having a super celebration for her fourth blogaversary!!  (yay!!! Congrats Jo!)

Jo has presented a FANTABULOUS challenge to anyone who would like to play along!  Here are the deets!

Choose any three of the following and create!!
  • Kraft Paper - yes, I'm still obsessed with it....  (CHECK!)
  • Pink, Ivory and Orange as your color combination - I'm needing a little springy fix.... (CHECK!)
  • Twine - I do *love* me some twine! (CHECK!)
  • Mixed Stitching - I've got straight, zig zag and "crazy" stitching on mine (CHECK!)
  • Ledger, Alpha or number paper - I've got this fun number grid..... (CHECK!)
In true Joanne B. fashion, I added a giant flourish of bling to the front of my card and have finished off the interior as well.  Joanne always amazes me with how uber creative she is.  Talented, inspiring and always always the best friend ever.   Thank you Jo for always inspiring me, always being there for me and always "getting me".  ;)

I'm going to tuck this card into my darling daughter's lunch box for school tomorrow!!  I know she'll LOVE it!!!

Just for the fun of it I'm also entering this card into challenges at the following blogs:

Pixie Dust Studio
The Spotted Chick

I hope you have enjoyed and been as inspired by Joanne as I am!!!
