Last CR84FN

I am saddened to hear that Mona is hosting her last CR84FN challenge. This challenge has a special place on my blog as I got Terrific Top Three for a card I submitted last year in CR84FN49 and it prompted me to start a blog. Now, 10 months later, I have submitted over 100 cards last year in challenges and publication calls. So, I've made a special effort to get a card submitted in time. I decided to use Sweet Sunday Sketch 176 with the colours for the CR84FN70 challenge, along with my newest stamps. I'm also submitting this card to Moxie Fab World's Make a Background challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Herocontest on Splitcoast.
I've just heard on Twitter that USPS will be increasing their international rates by 60% and it will take effect late February. This is not good news and it will mean that it will take us longer to get the newly released stamps! So I'm not too happy and will be placing some orders soon to beat the increase!





















Ingredients:
Cardstock - Neenah Solar White and Dessert Storm
Stamps - PTI Lovely Layers, Hero Arts Tweed Background, SSS Sentiment
Ink - Hero Arts Mid Tone Inks - Pool, Wet Cement and Butter Bar, Tim Holtz Broken China
Dies - SSS Banner, MFT Dienamics Flags STAX
Others - Twine and brad
