Long lost Hodgepodge hardware


Happy Sunday to everyone. I think alot of people have a three day weekend this weekend but here on Long Island, the kids are off ALL week for winter break. Oh lucky me!! LOL. Actually my kids are so at an independent age. With just a few friends over they can all keep themselves well entertained so I am pretty lucky. It is just the house!! What a mess it becomes with all those kids around. UGGHH and the food that I have to feed all of them!! But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love that my kids friends like to be here.

Any who....I have a few cards to share with you today. The first one was made with my new set Friends 24-7. I just love this set. My paper is the delicious Parisian Breeze Specialty. This has to be the best paper that SU has made. It is textured and real thick. And last but not least, I whipped out my long lost Hodgepodge Hardware that is so very neglected and was able to use some brads, a ribbon slide and a sentiment frame for this card. It looks perfect with this paper.

The next card that I have to share with you is for todays Featured Stamper over on SCS. Julie has an incredible gallery and I had a hard time picking a card to case but finally decided on this one:

The rules of the FS Challenge is to case the card but change two or more things. I changed around the following things:
-different colors
-different image
-I deleted the ribbon and embossed with my cuttlebug strips instead

Thanks so much for stopping by on this beautiful Sunday. I think I will be back later with a few more posts. Until then, have a great day.
