a card for two challenges...

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share a card I made for two challenges blog friends of mine are hosting!  I had the idea for the card a few nights ago while I was trying to fall asleep, ended up not falling asleep until 2 am that night!  Today I finally got a chance to make it!  It just so happens that this card works for two challenges!  I love it when that happens! Here is my card:




I used two Hero Arts background stamps on this card, on the top I clear embossed the Horizontal lines, and because I did it on bazill cardstock that is a bit textured it shows through on the embossing, but I like how it looks.  I so love to clear emboss!  On the bottom on cream I stamped with brown ink the Friends definition.  Both of these stamps I was lucky to win as blog candy, thanks so much Judy and Mary Dawn!  The friends definition just came today, and I love it!  I have actually wanted it for a while!  The flower is also a new stamp by HA Blossom, I saw it at my LSS a bit ago and than decided that I needed it and ran back there last week and picked it up!

 These are the challenges, my colors are from this one that Kim is hosting at her blog here :

And than the text is for Jenny's challenge check out her blog here:


I am sorry but Kim's challenge ends really soon but she posts a challenge weekly!  As does Jenny, this one runs onto Sunday!  Go check them out, their challenges are fun! And they are both super talented!  Add them to your blog list like I did so you can have fun playing, with a chance to win prizes also!

I better run as I want to bake tonight and make some more cards!  I realized that whenever I make my favorite dessert white chocolate brownie it's for bringing somewhere.  I decided today that I want to make it just for me us and enjoy it!  I can almost taste it!
