Y&FH Challenge #30

Happy Sunday! 
Our newest challenge at Yumi & Fumi Handmade is a Sketch Challenge which ends 
January 31st....so hurry!  

I had the hardest time figuring out what to do with this sketch because I was very determined to use this fabulous paper, which came with this adorable sentiment that begged to be used.....

The heart placement on the sketch reminds me of Valentine's Day, which makes me think of my college-aged daughter  She comes home from J-term this week and goodness, I can't tell you how nice it will be nice to see her.


As the journal sat on my craft desk I would add a little bit of this and a little bit of that, a gem here  and a gem there .... maybe even two gems. Here is an even more sketchy, artsy, updated picture of the journal cover using Summer Fumi.

I can't wait to give it to my daughter for Valentine's Day, along with some lovin' and some chocolate!

There are a few changes which are in effect for the current Y&FH Challenge #30:
The WINNER will receive a stamp of Y&FH's choosing, plus a personalized badge.
The TOP 3 will receive personalized badges for their blogs.
Sketch details and challenge rules stay the same, you can view them HERE.

Good luck to all of the entries, winners will be announced on Saturday, February 1st.

Y&FH #29 Anything Goes Challenge Reminder

I'm going to tell you a little secret...
this 6x6 card took me hours to make! I can't image how long it might have taken to complete if I hadn't pre-colored the image, chosen papers, and packed everything together a few months ago. I am oh-so glad I did!

Wishing Melissa a Happy Birthday!

 Today I'm wishing my fellow Team Fumi DT-matie 
*** MELISSA ***
HAPPY Birthday!
Melissa is sweet, talented, creative, reliable, friendly and always ready to jump in to lend a hand! It wouldn't be right to let her birthday pass with out saying HB!

I thought Fumi w/ Gift, pink hair, and butterflies would be a fun way 
 to celebrate, along with using her fav colors:
pink, purple, and BLACK.


I've crossed my fingers in hope that we were able to surprise Melissa with our happy and cheerful wishes?! Feel free to click HERE to go to her blog to leave her some birthday love, of course you can leave a comment at the Y&FH blog too!

Melissa, wishing you a year of happiness and good health, Happy Birthday!

Thanks for stopping by.
Brrrrrr......it's a cooooooold in the midwest!!!
Stay warm, stay safe!
