Happy Friday Everyone!! The weekend is upon us!! Woo hoo! We have no special plans here...we will just be home. I am actually looking forward to a restful weekend. Since today I feel like I was hit by a truck and zapped from all energy...the rest begins here and now (if my kids will allow it that is). is another Wags n Whiskers challenge.

This week we have a fun and easy challenge challenge for you!

Jacqui is our hostess and her challenge is called "Just Good Friends". You can either make a card using one our images with two characters, or you can just make a card for a friend. She is leaving the challenge open to interpetation. Just remember that you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamps.

One lucky participant will win ONE FREE WAGS 'N WHISKERS STAMP OF YOUR CHOICE!! This is an easy peasy challenge so I sure hope you will join us.

This is my take on the challenge:

I like to do different things and change things up a bit so I don't get bored or become stagnant in my crafting so this weeks Simon Says Stamps to make a tent card with a charm challenge was perfect for me. I have never made a tent card before and it was so much fun!!! I used the Summer Treat image from Wags n Whiskers and Basic Grey Euphoria paper.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Summer Treat from Wags n Whiskers
Paper: Basic Grey Euphoria
Accessories: sponging, Embroidered Flower white lace, MS Twig punch, MS Border punch, rhinestones, Fancy Tags Spellbinders
ZVA creative Rosebuds, Prima sparkle flowers, Butterfly charm from my dear friend America.

Simon Says Challenge: tent card and charm

Creative Inspirations - Punches or Die Cuts
Practical Scrappers: Patterned Paper
Spoon Full of Sugar: Cute and girly

Saturday Challenge: Metal
Pollycraft Monday: Summer blooms
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Blooming Charming

Charisma Cards- 3D
Flutter by Wednesday- butterflies and flowers
Papertake Weekly: Say it with flowers
Creative Belli- hole Punch (for suspending my image)

Lacey, Karen, Michele, Debbie, Sharon, Jeanette, Melanie, Tina, Nikki, Renata, Christa, and Jacqui and Our Guest DT this week: Crystal Irwin.
