Friday.....Blog Candy...... Flat Card Friday or Mail Friendly Friday?



On the heels of the blog hop I thought I would want to encourage all of the new visitors to my blog to keep coming back. Beginning today and running until Thursday (one full week) You will see the blog candy picture first, and my daily project next.
Want to enter to win the blog candy? 
Sign up to follow my blog and leave me a comment telling me something you like about my blog and something you would like to see more of!
I will put all of the followers with comments into a random drawing for the blog candy. 
Be sure you are following my blog and have left a comment (what you like/what you want to see more of) between Friday, March 16 and Thursday, March 22.
I will announce the winner on Friday, March 23rd!

Today's project is at the request of my friend (and customer) Kris...
Should we call it:
Flat Card Friday
or 
Mail Friendly Friday?


The point is to create a lovely card you are proud to send without having to pay extra postage.


I thought it was a great idea and maybe this should be a regular thing.
What do you all think?
Supplies:
  • Marina Mist CS, Wild Wasabi CS, Whisper White CS
  • Everything Eleanor, Pursuit of Happiness
  • Melon Mambo Ink Pad, Wild Wasabi Ink Pad, Marina Mist Ink Pad
  • Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Paper Snips

I'm a follower and I like to *see* all the different color combinations you use on your cards! and I LOVE the Flat Friday post.

I love your blog! Thank you for sharing. I love the close up photos so I can really see the details. I'd love to see additional samples using the same stamp set or multiple samples of the same template with alternate stamp sets....I just want more awesomeness!

I love that you make everything seem so "do-able"! As a fellow demo, that is hard to do sometimes. Love your step it up cards too!

I am a follower! I love your choice of colors. I really like the way you photograph your cards, it makes it easy to see from each angle. You have inspired me in my own card making. Each card has its own character and style, and it has taught me how to look at making cards in a different way...like the way you mat your different layers, especially with the use of dsp. Thank you for sharing your talent with us!
ps. I love this card!

Donna said...

Ohhhh! I forgot to mention what I would like to see more of...different types of fold cards!
Thanks!
