Sending Smiles Across the Miles ...


I love when there are challenges that mesh perfectly together.

We have Your Next Stamp (YNS45) color challenge of black and white + 1 more, and CAS-ual Fridays (CAS8) theme challenge called Getting Edgy.

I pulled out my Avocado Arts Hello Friend set for this design.
I think these telephone posts are simply adorable with the coordinating sentiment, and couldn't resist putting the cute birdie on the pole. 

For the scallop sentiment I used only the center part of Martha Stewarts Double Scallop punch on each coordinating color, layered them together and curved the sentiment along the scalloped edge.  After attaching the sentiment I popped on the design.

Hope my design inspires you to go forth and create.
