Y&FH CH 18 ~ A time to celebrate!


Hope everyone is doing well.  So who's an NBA basketball fan?  Are you enjoying the battle between two great basketball teams?  I am!  Tonight is game 7 and it should be as awesome as the whole series has been.  Talk about stepping up and falling short!  I'm not a fan of either team, but I'm rooting for one and hopefully they'll pull it out.  Either way it's been fun to watch the drama unfold.

I'm back today to share a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to link up to the Yumi & Fumi Handmade challenge happening right now.  Here's a reminder of the details:
Challenge #18 - Time to Celebrate
Create a celebratory card for any occasion. 

Today I'm sharing my card featuring Fumi with Turtle from the Peek-a-Book Spring series.  You can purchase her in our online store along with any of our stamp series.  (We also carry the Sister Stamps line and we have all the new stamps in the store.)

I had a little bit of fun with some cute bright papers, the color red and a CAS layout. 

When making this card I was going for something that could be used for almost any celebration.  I used red as my base color and chose papers that had a touch of red and a little bit of other colors.  The paper was key to this one.  Fun colorful banners and hearts paired up with the colorful polka dots really helped here.  By using the bright fun cardstock, sentiment banner and the word "celebrate" helped to achieve my goal.  It doesn't hurt to have an adorable image either. :)

Don't forget the challenge ends tomorrow at noon, pst.  The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate and the Top 3 will receive a 10% discount on their shopping cart to our online store.  Either would come in handy since we've got some new stamps in.

If you're unsure if your card qualifies just click on the tab at the top labeled Challenge Info on the Y&FH page and you can verify it.  We would rather you be sure before linking up instead of sad that your card had to be deleted because it doesn't follow our rules.

Mahalo for stopping by today.
I hope I was able to inspire you with something fun. 
Have a great day!!

This card made me smile...a big one! I love the bright colors and excitement of the banners, hearts, and dots. Making a 'celebrate' card is brilliant because everyone always seems to forget an occasion, occasionally. I don't often use red but your card has encouraged me to give that happy color a try. I'm so glad I stopped by your blog today!
