LLWWC22 - Never Ending Friendship

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I have two awesome challenges for you today! For the Pretties Wednesday Challenge, please click HERE!

Welcome to another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! It's Elena's turn to be your hostess for this week's challenge! She is one of our newest DT member and we are very happy to have her join our team!

 Before I get to the challenge, I'd like to thank everyone who played with us last week challenge Shaped Cards! We really enjoyed visiting your blogs and look at your wonderful cards! Be sure to check if you are a winner of the last week’s challenge!

Elena wanted us to create a “Fancy Fold” card for this challenge. Anything that deviates from the normal "one-fold" card will qualify. Our DT came up with some fabulous cards!! You can check them out HERE.

I knew I wanted to do the "Never Ending" card. It's one that I have taught at Memories Live On and the students LOVE making these cards.

Don't forget about La-La Land Crafts special offer - Buy three, get one FREE!
Between now and January 30th, when you purchase three stamps from our online store, you will receive a FREE stamp of your choice!!
 Just let us know your choice in the Notes section upon check out!!
Thank you!

Simply Special Birthday Wishes

Hello Prettie peeps! It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop! If you hopped over from KRISTY's blog, then you are on the right track! If not, hop back to the very beginning to CHRISTIE's blog. Then make your way back over here! I don't want you  to miss a thing! :)

This week the challenge is hosted by Kristy Ketterlin. Kristy’s favorite color is pink... anything and everything pink! So Kristy has a color challenge for us, to create a card using the colors pink, white and one of your favorite colors. Wait... there's another part to the challenge! You have to add ribbon and use a technique you have not tried before!

I used the stamp SIMPLY SPECIAL. I needed to make a birthday card for a fellow preschool teacher and thought she would really like this image. I used white, pink, and teal as my colors. Teal?! No... it's not my favorite color. However, the SCS Clean and Simple Cards challenge - CAS50 is to use teal, white, and one other color. The new thing that I wanted to try out was using only white cardstock... no designer paper. I don't know if it's a "technique" but I thought it would be neat to try. I used a sponge to add the pink everywhere.

I also decided to join in on Mojo Monday's Sketch Blog challenge.

Here's my card: Simply Special Birthday Wish
