Fab Friday 22

Hi stampers!  Yay, it's Friday!!!!  I'm in full convention-prepping mode and this weekend will be no exception!  It will be last minute swaps and preparations!!!!  I'm SO excited to see all my stampy peeps!!!!  It's always so much fun to see old friends and make new ones!  Anyway, in all the craziness I almost forgot to make the card for today's Fab Friday Challenge, oops!  Luckily one of my team mates emailed me theirs last night which reminded me, hehe!  I may appear to be organized (and I really DO try to be) but I'm so not sometimes, lol!

So, we have a bright and fun color challenge this week!

To me, this screamed all things summer like the 4th of July (I know...we were just a few days too late) and picnics!  So, I came up with this little ditty which I think looks very summery!  The gingham one reminds me of a picnic blanket!  I should take a blanket and eat my lunch outside at work today (if my co-workers don't twist my arm to go out...I need to save money...I need to save money....) since it's supposed to be super nice out and NOT a million degrees and sticky like earlier this week!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Six sided sampler
Paper:  Whisper white, basic gray, real red
Ink:  Basic gray, real red, tempting turquoise
Accessories:  Hexagon punch, hexagon embossing folder, basic rhinestones

I broke out the new hexagon set which I just got and I think it is just too cute!

Now, make sure to check out all the amazing DT creations!  I really love how everyone put their own spin on it and really took things in different directions!  And then play along and wow us!  We can't wait to see what you made.  And again, if you are a demo and see any of us at convention make sure to say hi and that you play at Fab Friday!  We'd love to meet you!  Although, I have to say I hate big crowds and this one is double what I'm use to so if you see me huddled in a corner it may be best to say hey from a few feet away, lol!!!!!  Wish me luck with THAT!!!!!

Happy stamping!


  1. This is super, Mindy! I like how you used the hex

  2. Love your hexi card!! I just looked at mine set this evening, petted it a bit and then decided I was too tired to even attempt to be creative! I will keep this cool layout in mind when I finally get around to stamping! Hope the swaps are coming along! TFS!

  3. Mindy, I hope I run into you and get the chance to say "hi" at convention. This will be my first ever convention!!! I am so excited! If I don't, I want you to know how much inspiration your blog gives me. We have a very similer stamping style so I love to read your blog and see your newest creations!I pin most of your cards! God Bless!

  4. I love all the hexagons and little touches of bling. Perfect and fun summer card! I can't wait to hang with you at Convention! SQUEEEE!

  5. Very cute card!! Love the CAS layout!! The bling is too precious!! I really need to try more of those!! Maybe cards wouldn't take me hours to make!! :) It was great to see you again at convention!! I wish it lasted all year!! :)


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
