Just for you card!

Today, I wanted to celebrate my 10 year old friendship with my best buddy. She has been with me through thick and thin and boy, does she know what I go through everyday. Even though we live at both ends of the world, we still keep in touch. I don't know what my life would be without you. For this, I would like to say Thank you!!!

This card purse is made especially for you to honor you and to a long lasting friendship, S. I got this idea from my recently purchased book from Chapters "Fabulous Fun and Folds for Card Making" by Tanya Fox. Plenty of ideas from this book, I tell you. The sentiment inside the card is from my own handwriting.





Recipe:

Paper: MS Cardstock
Stamps: Elisabeth Bell Laura's Yummy Pudding, Hampton Art Studio g "Enjoy"
Accessories: Ribbon from Michaels, Glitter Pen, Black pen, Prima flowers, Recollections brads
Other: Nestabilities, Copics

CDAC Progressive Challenge #7

Although I've been a member for a while at CDAC, it's my first time taking part in their challenges. Today, I have made a simple Purple treat box that has some smarties in it. It is for my neighbour's daughter 4th birthday. She has a sweet tooth! That's what I've been cooking for the past few days.

I've used the apple from Heart Song Designs and the sentiment from Sending Treasures.  I've colored them with Stampin' Up markers. The Purple paper is from Martha Stewart Cardstock and I have doodled with my Purple pen around the border of the triangular shape. The template to make the treat box is from "Pack-o-Fun", Issue Apr 2010, from my local library. 

Here is what I've come up with:




Challenges:
CDAC PC#7 - What's cooking? (A treat box fit for a sweet girl!)
Pile It on - All about P ("P" for "Purple Treat box,, purple ribbon, purple pen)
