AMAP Mystery Hostess Layout Challenge

Hey! Happy Friday! It's supposed to be a beautiful weekend here for Father's Day! Thanks to the girls down South who sent up some sunshine!! :D

I've been in a "manly card" rut and haven't been keeping up with the A-muse-a-palooza challenges cuz I wanted to be sure and focus on Father's Day cards!! I finally got them done and decided to try out a couple of the challenges! I know it's late to enter for Geeta's AWESOME color challenge, but I still wanted to try it cuz it's SOOO beautiful!! I paired it up with Amy R's very cute Mystery Hostess Layout Challenge.

I killed 3 birds with one stone on this card! Both the challenges and my sweet DD is turning 7 next month and I'll be gone for her birthday, so I wanted to be sure and get a head start on a card so she feels special. This is the first time I've ever missed one of my kids' birthdays, but I'll be back the day after and we'll celebrate properly for sure!

Last Winter during one of Novell's wonderful A Muse classes, she showed us how to make these pretty little banner's on a card and I've wanted to use that trick ever since. Now was the perfect opportunity.

All stamps papers and twinkle stickers used on this card are from A Muse (except white CS), Inks by Palette Hybrid (Burnt Umber) and Copic Markers, Circle punches by Stampin' Up!

Thanks for reading my blog today! If you haven't tried any of the A-muse-a-palooza challenges yet, head on over and try them out!!

Blessings to you!

My daughter is 7 too :) Such a fun fun age! I still manage to pick her up sleeping and carry her to bed...but I'm not sure how much longer that will last. I do have to turn sideways to get through the door....I "try" not to bump her into the wall! So far I haven't woke her up. LOL We love to snuggle!! Oh....I'm here cause of your CARD! Hello!! ha ha ha AWESOME!! :)

Rhonda, this card is GORGEOUS! How on earth do you keep coming up with these beautiful cards?!? I love it!

Hi Rhonda!

Love your interpretation of the challenge! It was great to meet you in person at the A Muse shop today, and I enjoyed chatting with you! Thanks for your help! Hope we can stay in touch. Let me know if you'd like that lifeguard stamp. I'd be happy to pick it up for you as I'm down in Tukwila fairly often. They also have the life ring and the "You're a lifesaver" sentiment. (I know you had at least one of those, but I couldn't remember which one you said it was.)
