GOOOOOOOOD FRIDAY AFTERNOON!
I REALLY don't want to work today... bleh.
Its cloudy and cold today which would be a perfect day to sit at home at my dining room table and craft away..... I have swaps to get done! Darn WORK getting in the way! yucko!
So I took inventory last night of the stamps I have accumulated since I re-started papercrafting and holy sh*t! If it weren't for the wonderful gals I've made friends with on SCS, the sensible side of me would be telling me to STOP! Its costing too much!! At least dbf doesn't REALLY know the cost total!
So I suppose since I'm not posting a new card for you all to take a look see at, I should post something interesting. So, I'm posting a challenge for you all.
During my inventory last night, I realized that I had a good number of stamps and stamp sets that I have NOT even trimmed & mounted - let alone inked up! So here's my challenge to all of you.
Step 1: Gather all stamps and/or stamp sets that you have either NEVER used, or have not used for a very long time. A very long time being months or years, depending on how long you've been stamping for. If you use all your stamps on a regular basis, I bow to you!
Step 2: CLOSE YOUR EYES and reach into that pile & pick out a random set. DON"T LOOK!!!!!!!!
Now of course I could just say "make a card" but that would be too easy! There has to be rules!!
Step 3: Create a card using
a) a minimum of 3 layers
b) a minimum of 2 colors EXCLUDING black & white (if you choose to use black or white, you must incorporate at least 2 other colors)
c) use at least 1 embellishment (ribbon, button, brad, eyelet, card candy, etc.)
Step 4: Post a comment here with a link to your blog (with photo and info on your card).
********** If you don't have a blog, post a photo with details in your gallery on SCS and again, post a comment and link here.
Well, I guess as some encouragement to get your on you way, I should give something away... so... post by Next Friday, November 28th, '08 and everyone who completes the challenge will receive a card kit from me.
HAPPY STAMPING! and TGIF!
