Love, Joy and Peace, it's Friday afterall! :D

Hi everyone and a very happy Friday to you! This week went by at a nice pace, but I am looking forward to the weekend. I hope you all have fun plans? I am going to clean up my craft space and organize my DP by color. Wish me luck! I'll probably get half way and then be distracted... How do I know? Because this is exactly what happened when I found this DP:

Isn't it pretty groovy? I have no idea where I got it from...Liann? A RAK? Not sure, but I loved it when I came across it and couldn't wait to create a card with Hippie Anya. She's a limited edition from The Greeting Farm so don't wait too long to get her!

I found this awesome challenge site called Cute Card Thursday. This week, they challenge us to use eyelets. Well, I happen to LOVE eyelets. I use them all the time in tag accordian books, they are a wonderful embellishment, especially since I received a Crop-A-Dile last Halloween in an SCS swap. Before then I was using the old hammer and tool technique. I could only set eyelets during the day downstairs. lol!
Here is a closer look at the 3 heart eyelets I used, with sheer ribbon tied through:

I don't know if you can see Anya's hair in this picture, but I stamped it again and pieced it on with pop dots. My buddy Tammy does this with her images and I wanted to give it a try. I love the dimension it brings, and it's so fitting for a hippie to have plenty of hair, right? :D

I also used an old SU sentiment stamp - do you remember it? It says PEACE {flourish} LOVE {flourish} JOY. I inked them up individually to stamp on the different lines.

Just a few things before I let you go on this beautiful Friday:
Current challenges going on:
.:A fabulous sketch on Tuesday Morning Sketches that is sponsored by Whimsie Doodles
.:The Digi Shack's new 3 patterns challenge
.:The last day for my Inktegrity DT call is tomorrow (7/25), thank you all for the emails and applications!
Okay, go and have an incredible day everyone!
*Love and Aloha*
