The Friday Mashup is celebrating a huge milestone today.  100 challenges!  Isn't that exciting?   I was excited to get an email from Holly asking me to join them in celebrating.  After looking through all the previous challenges, I decided to do challenge #52 which was using kites and colorful twine.  I love baker's twine and I do miss using Send Me Soaring.  It's one of my favorite sets ever!

As I was making this I first used white was the background and it was just TOO white.  I tried to color in the sky but it looks pretty awful to say the least.   After a suggestion from my friend Marla, I tried Pool Party and coloring the clouds in and it worked perfectly!   I'm not sure the clouds should have went all the way down to the grass, but that's a whole other issue.  lol  I'm not sure what this card will be, but for now I'm thinking a very unusual graduation card.  :)

I love my cute, silly girl.   The teething has been taking away her laughter and making her fussy, but Tylenol seems to bring her back to her happy self.  I am so ready for these teeth to be in!  


  1. I love these clouds and kites! And the sweet little flowers and pearls look so adorable nestled in the grass.

    You'd never know from the sweet pic of Laila that she's been grumpy lately. She looks as happy as ever!

  2. I absolutely love your card! Very cheery and playful. But your daughter steals the show!

  3. I love the clouds going all the way down to the bottom and the grass is is the way you used the twine, Fabulous card Rita!

  4. Adorable, Rita! Love the flowers in the grass... dandelions? Little Missy would love them.

  5. Glad to see you back for the 100th challenge Rita!

    I think the clouds look great going all the way down, it feels like the horizon to me! I also think it would make a wonderful graduation card :)

  6. I haven't been a fan of this embossing folder, until now! I love the sponging on it! Makes all the difference in the world! Love the kites with the twine! Fun card. Laila looks like she likes it!

  7. Love what you did with the sky and the clouds! This EF is perfect for kites and balloons... Love the pic of Laila....she is so sweet!

  8. Such a beautiful card Rita! Those kites look wonderful against that embossed background. It has been a pleasure to have you playing along with us at the 100th challenge.

  9. I love, love, LOVE this card! I really like how you’ve highlighted the clouds in the background and your little flowers in the grass. So cute!
