Finally Friday!

It's Finally Friday and have we got a special host for you today!!!

Mariana is hosting today!!! I am so excited to have Mariana with is. She is so talented and incredibly nice to work with. If you haven't had a chance to meet her, today's your lucky day :O)

Hi everybody! My name is Mariana Grigsby and I live in Northern Illinois with my husband, our two sons, and our two pets. Besides being a mom and wife, I am a volunteer at my kids school in the ESL department. I grew up learning all the crafty stuff: crochet, knitting, embroidering, cross stitching, sewing, and painting from my mom. So for me, that was just the beginning :). I began making cards many years ago, and I became interested (and addicted) on scrapbooking three years ago. I love learning new techniques and I love going to craft stores :D. I started blogging because I wanted to share my creativity, and participate in cards and scrapbooking challenges on the internet. Since then, I have had a blast with my blog. What I love the most about it, is the chance to meet such great crafters and all the inspiration you can have. You can check out my blog at:

Mariana's Challenge: I love using my stamps but, just a few of them are my favorites. My challenge is to make a card using one of your favorite stamps, and if you want, also using your favorite color combo.

Here is her beautiful sample card:

Finally Friday challenges are just for fun to get your creative juices flowing. Add a direct link to your project in Mr. Linky below. There is no due date for these challenges, but I will close the Mr. Linky after a week or two. If you participate after Mr. Linky is closed, just leave a comment with your link so we can check it out!!

Happy Crafting,
