Little Frieda's Daisy & Some Big TCM News!

Happy Palm Sunday!  Today's Stampin' Sisters in Christ card challenge is based on Matthew 16:23  -Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan!"          I just know that our host, Peggysue, has some insight for us in her wonderful devotional on the DT Blog, so be sure to hop over and read! The challenge is to use either Versamark, or the same color ink as the paper you use so it creates a tone-on-tone effect. 

The image I used is Little Frieda, from The Craft's Meow, which has a brand new blog and store makeover and it's pretty cute so head on over to check those out!  Not only that, TCM is now on Facebook and for every 100 fans by April 30th, The Craft's Meow is giving away a set of the four new stamp sets that will be released on May 1st designed by Nina Brackett!  So hurry on over to TCM's Facebook page and click to "Like" and be entered to win!  =)

ALSO:  Lisa (owner of The Craft’s Meow) shows her appreciation for those who display her store badge on their blog’s sidebar by awarding random prizes now and then, so be sure to grab her badge and you could be her next prize winner!

Hope you'll join us at Stampin Sisters in Christ for our Tone-on-Tone challenge this week!  To see the girls' creations in detail please visit their blogs:


Stamp:  Little Frieda's Daisy (TCM)
PaperWisteria (BG); Almost Amethyst; Blush BLossom
Accessories:  Peach pearl flourish w/ roses, prima flower, green pearls, & Spellbinders Nesties (McMahon Five Designs); lattice border punch (Martha Stewart); sewing machine & white thread ;)
I have to admit that I cheated just a bit on the challenge as I did not actually stamp my background.  However, it DOES have a tone-on-tone effect, most of what I covered up with my image.  But if you look closely, you'll see green leaves on the green paper.  =)
