Black and White Friendship Card

Welcome to the weekend Everyone,

I am really excited about the challenge this week at Joan’s Gardens!  Joan is trying something new and this week and the winners will be voted on by the other ladies that enter the challenge.  Here’s a link to the challenge so you can check it out for yourself : )  I just love working with Black and White so this challenge was a great one to play along with.

I recently received some JustRite stamp sets that I purchased from Joan’s Gardens and couldn’t wait to put them to use!  Here’s my entry into the challenge this week.


Here is a closer look


Here are the requirements:

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
