Crazy4Challenges AND Speedy's Friends

The challenge for the Speedy's Friends Challenge this week was to make a sympathy card.  Once again I grabbed for my new fav Happy Pansies set from Mark's Finest Papers.  These pansies just make me happy!!!

Be sure to stop by Speedy's Friends post on the MFP Blog to see the creations of the rest of the team.  Be sure to post a link on Mr. Linky if you are able to play along with us.  Prizes could be involved!!!!

The Crazy4Challenges team had a sketch challenge this week.  Here is the fab sketch Maria gave us to use.


I kept my card pretty simple.  I used an old SU snowflake stamp, a MS border punch, a touch of piercing, and my Classic Nestie Circles.  Easy-peasy, and yet bold.....IMHO!!!

Be sure to stop by to see the fab creations of the rest of the team.  It is always so interesting to see all the different interpretations of a single sketch.  I'm sure the trip to the C4C Blog will be well worthwhile and inspiring.
