Sparking My Creative Spirit With CR84FN!

This week I have been totally bowled over by the amazing paper creations which abound in the crafty bit of the blogoshphere that I love to hangout in, particularly over the last week.  I noticed that there were so many utterly drool-worthy creations that were designed especially for CR84FN.  So I decided to check them out a bit further.  Well,  Hubba!  Hubba! is the best I could manage when I saw the bevy of beautiful creations already linked for the challenge and the gorgeous kickstart creations on display by the CR84FN DT.  Beyond amazing!  CR84FN currently has a color challenge on that just had me want to swoon (mind you that isn't so hard to do when you pair up chocolate and pink). Bliss.


So I thought, why not?  Here's my first CR84FN Color Challenge card:



Happy Valentine's Day Beautiful! Card:  


  • Stamps:  Inkadinkado Happy Valentine's Day Woodblock, Hero Arts Canvas Stripe and Old Letter Writing (I never can tell which is the right side up with this stamp?) Woodblocks
  • Paper:  Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream and Rustic Cream, Lincraft Bright Pink
  • Ink:  VersaMagic, Pink Petunia, SU Chocolate Chip, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye, and Spun Sugar
  • Accessories:  Vintage Crochet Lace, Spellbinders Nestabilities Pinking Circles, Pinking Sheers (I concede that I may have gone a bit pinking mad), Glitter Paint in Antique Rose, papertrey Ink Impression Plate, and Jute


Thank you so much for stopping by! x
