Here for You Card- FWF & FFC

Good Morning!
Whew! Life around here has been CRAZY the last few days. With Ben retiring, us moving, trying to buy a house in Texas, getting moved out of our house here....there are TONS of little details that I seem to spend hours on the phone taking care of... 

As a result, I am running seriously behind on my projects! I have 2 blog posts today (this is the first) and neither of these projects were made until this morning. Luckily, I have so much on my mind, it isn't hard to wake up at 2:30 am and start stamping. LOL! I felt like I had accomplished quite a bit by 5:00 am this morning when I had already completed a card and a layout (will be up on my next blog post today) for today. ;o)

This card today is part of my Friends with Flair and Friday Fun Challenge card.

For our Friday Fun Challenge today, we were to create a card using the colors:

When I came up with the challenge, I had no idea that it was going to work so PERFECTLY with this month's Caffinated Cropper Kit, With a Cherry on Top, which I used for the majority of the supplies for this card.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Together We Bloom
*Caffinated Cropper With a Cherry on Top kit (plaid paper, pink card stock, cork,  eyelet ruffle, buttons)
*Kraft & Cream card stock
*Palette Burnt Umber ink pad
*watercolor pencils
*Fiskars border punch (I was amazed at how easily this cut the cork)
*corner rounder

Friday Fun Challenge #79

Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun Girls blogs for more inspiration.  

We would love for you to play with us- just use keyword FFC79 when uploading to your SCS gallery.
