Challenge Week 18 - Designer Series Paper

Well lookie lookie... today is Friday, and my challenge is done and posted... Whew! Why are deadlines so hard to meet?
This week's assignment was to use DSP as the focal point... I was going to be goofy and just slap a piece of paper on a card and stamp a sentiment... but then, as stamping goes, I just HAD to do a little more, then a little more, then... it's still pretty simple, which was my intent, and I don't think the DSP is actually the focal point... but the card is done, posted and on time... hey, can't have everything!

Challenge Week 17 - Inspiration

So, by now, you've figured out that I didn't participate in this challenge... all good intentions laid aside... I just ran out of time getting ready for our trip. Enough with excuses and promises... it is what it is folks... I try my best, but sometimes that's just not good enough.

My life philosophy - forgive or forget and MOVE ON!

To quote Alice's friend the White Rabbit...

"I'm late... I'm late... For a very important date. No time to say "Hello." Goodbye. I'm late, I'm late, I'm late."

I'm horribly, horribly late!

My sincere apologies... but I'll make up for it - we're going out of town this weekend, so I'll have to post this week's challenge on Thursday!

Challenge Week 15

Due October 5 - Use Black & Orange

Hello all ! I was completely uninspired by this week's challenge. It actually was a challenge just to sit down and stamp - what an awful feeling! So, I took the easy way out - I completely CASE'd a card from the catalog... well I changed a couple things, but for the most part I stole the idea on page 28.

Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Always Artichoke
C/S: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi
Access: Black Gingham Ribbon, Silver Brads, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Dimensionals, Paper Snips
