There are times in our lives that just call for a celebration! One of the newest significant celebrations in our social networking world is a blog achievements. There are blogavessaries celebrations and one of the great I think is achievements. Many folks collect buttons and add them as they are awarded, but stats is quite another.
Stats achievement of the caliber I am refering to are the really huge numbers in visits to a blog. 300,00 visits is no small potatoes for a blog achievement. Two of my favorite designers and talented designers are both celebrating this achievement this week. They are Julie Koerber, FLLC DT Co ordinator and Laura Fredrickson a senior designer for FLLC. My hat is off to these very talented ladies. It is obvious that they have a lot to offer and we all visit them on a regular basis. I would suggest that you visit these fine ladies, they have some prizes and challenges for you to join in making the celebrating much more fun for all.
Here is a card I made to celebrate this great occasion for each of these great friends.
The Friday Focus over on the Flourishes Newsletter today has Latisha Yost hosting a tutorial on tying great bows. She has both a picture and video tutorial…..Just Fab!!!
For my card I work on a new type of vellum that I received from a stamper, Karen Wallace (thanks Karen). I will share much more on this later. I colored the images with Prisma color pencils after Stamping with Hybrid Palette Charcoal for the roses and Jardin for the leaves. Layers of coloring and blender pencils gave me a great finished image on this new vellum.
The rest of the card is made up of :
Cardstock: Old Olive and White, Vellum
Cuttlebug folder, Swiss Dot, Kaiser Pearls, beautiful old ribbon and wonderful wired checked ribbon
Viola! I was done. Before I say goodbye here are a few more up close looks at this card.
This vellum is a Sherr joy ot color on and the images just want to jump off the paper. The dimension of these images is wonderful..It’s gotta be the vellum..LOL
I hope you will visit each of the Flourishes DT for their take on this week’s challenge: Tie a bow!
