Sister's Challenge

Good morning everyone! I had a great time yesterday with my Bible study sisters. The drive was about an hour and forty minutes to get to the church that was hosting Paul Young (author of The Shack). The talk was wonderful, lunch after wards was wonderful, it was just an all around wonderful day! I got home close to 4 p.m. and got to work on my Sister's Challenge card.

What is this sister's challenge I'm talking about? Well, an online friend of mine and her sister have occasional stamping challenges and because I'm such a nice person (and because I asked...I'm a lame-o I know) they adopted me and said I could join them. Oh, geeze....I haven't told you who the sisters are yet. They are Kristine from Ink Something and Kathy from Winter Creations by Kathy. Kris and Kathy are both incredible people! Kris and I have gotten to know each other over the internet and I would consider her one of my best blogging friends. While the internet can definitely be scary sometimes...sometimes some wonderful relationships come out of it, too!

Anyway, this challenge was to make a tri-shutter card. I just looked at Kris and Kathy's cards and it is funny...they are slightly different then mine. Absolutely wonderful but a slightly different fold. When you check them out...you'll see! For this card I REALLY wanted to the the new set you'll be able to order from the Holiday Mini called Beary Best Friends. It features some awful cute Build a Bear images...that's right, if you haven't already heard SU! is partnering with BABW to bring us fabulous stamps and dies for our Big Shots! WootI am so thrilled about this because even at 11 years old my son still loves BABW and it will be perfect to make cards for my nieces and friends kids. Yay! Anyway, the patterned paper you see is a complimentary Designer Series Paper pack called Pawsitively Prints. Inside you'll see a balloon image that is from the Beary Best Friends and then a couple of sentiments from the birthday set called On Your Birthday. There is a wonderful set of birthday sentiments for the BABW collection but I forgot to put it on my order...can you believe that? Hmmm...maybe that means I need to order again? Money

So, there you have it...my first Sister's Challenge card! I have to say I like the card but if you do try one I would be sure to really plan the panels out ahead of time to save you some assembly time. Let me know if you have any questions on this card.

Have a super Sunday everyone!

Great card, Lori. The bear is a real cutie! I love those tri-fold cards but I do agree they take some planning to look good. Have a wonderful day!
