Friday Fun Book Challenge & FWF

Hello lovely friends!  Happy Friday to you all!
I am having a SUPER happy Friday because I took the day off to give myself a nice 4-day weekend, yay me!
I think I'll do nothing today, yep, sure will!
And I'll start right after this blog post, lots of that daytime TV to watch...LOVE that stuff!

So today's FFC is to make a card inspired by your favorite book or a book you are reading, etc.
My card is very loosely inspired by the cover of Dark Lover...the book that started my love for the Black Dagger Brotherhood....grown-up vampire stuff!  no Edward (I still do love my Edward).

Here is the cover of the book:

and here is my card. I used the same colors and I made it about love because these books are all about LOTS of love ;)
this bad picture is why I take ALL of my pictures at work and why I never really submit to PC Mag,'s always the night of the deadline when I think of making something and there is NO WAY I am taking pics of them in my house with NO good lighting and sending them to anyone, lol....Oh well, c'est la vie, right?
{that's my story and I'm sticking to it!}

Check out the rest of the Friday Fun Girls:

I used the Stampin' Store kit Wishes and Kisses

My card is also for Friends With Flair

Now let me announce my blog candy winner, LUCKY #12:

Brenda said...
Oh Jimmi your card is beautiful!!! I love the Echo Park Be Mine papers, I just got some and oh they are so pretty and you did the justice! Thank you for the chance to win that wonderful pack of papers.
CONGRATS Brenda.  Please email me your address:

Don't forget about all the NEW releases over at Unity.....OMG-ness....the stamps keep getting better and better, I really don't understand how it's possible, but they do!
And it's still January so shipping is still FREE, even on these pre-orders!  LUCKY YOU!

Let me show you a few of my favorites!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Case Study Card & a Giveaway

Today I have a card I made for a challenge blog that I just discovered over the weekend, Case Study Challenge.
For the month of January their guest designer is Mercy Kerin....a SUPER sweetie.
I made this card based on her card on the Case Study blog.
I used Echo Park  BE MINE paper and Undeniably You.
I cut out the image with my pretty, PINK Grand Calibur :)

I also have a happy little BLOG giveaway for you.
I just have WAY too much paper so I am sharing!
I kept half of these paper lines and you get the rest...and a couple of paper pads, too...some stickers, fabric, etc.

I tried to count it and came to 60 sheets of 12x12 (give or take a few).

There is paper from My Minds Eye, Graphic 45 (Fashionista & Le Romantique), Bo Bunny, DCWV, Samantha Walker (fabric and stickers to match/Cowboy and Cowgirl collection), Making Memories (Chloe's Closet...1 of my all time FAVE lines, I still use it), Studio Calico (Elementary & others)....LOTS of good stuff!
It all weighs 3lb 12.4oz.

And I am going to give it all to one person on Friday (in the US only, since I have to pay to send it myself), so leave me a comment, say anything, no rules!

Thanks for visiting today!
