Just for Fun Challenge.

I am SOOO excited to share my first card for the Just for Fun Challenge (JFF). Some of you may know that Michele Boyer and Carole Burrage have particiapted in a month challenge where one sends images and the other paper and then challenge each other to create a card using the same materials--posting on the same day. You may have also read Carole's post last month which eluded that January's JFF Challenge would be BIGGER and BETTER well that's because Lori Craig, Julie Campbell and I decided to step on board and play along too. As you may know, the 5 of us served on the CHF team together and had the priveledge of developing a sisterhood! Love those girls!!!

So how does this challenge work? Well this month I received this beautiful Whiff of Joy image from Lori and that delicious heart patterned paper from Carole.
