Well, I have been busy this morning getting caught up on all the challenges on SCS and other blogs. I'll start off from left to right, so here goes! (If you wish to see a larger picture, just click on the photo and a new window will open with a decent sized pic so you can see the details.)
This lovely card was made for a Virtual Swap at The Stamp Shack. Debbie sent out pre-stamped images to about 10 people and we each did a card and posted it in the gallery. This is a wonderful way to see how to use a stamp when the idea just doesn't come to you easily. Send it to others and see their interpretations. And, best of all, NO POSTAGE!

Next up is Crabby Guy! This card was made for the sketch challenge at SCS, SC129. I just received my SU order yesterday and now have all cardstock in each colour family, plus Kraft paper, Very Vanilla and Cool Caribbean. Also in there was Crab & Co. stamp set and the spiral punch. I love, love, love Crabby Guy! I'm sure you will see him fairly frequently, even Christmas! Anyhoo, this was for the sketch challenge from Wednesday.

The third card from the left, was made for Poetic Artistry and the Bingo game going on. Each time someone posts a card, Julee adds another number. This is my contribution. Besides, my Papertrey Ink stamps also arrived yesterday and I had to play with those, too! Man, I didn't even get showered and dressed until 1:00 p.m. today, I was so busy playing. Getting old is great 'cause I get my second childhood early! My Papertrey Ink order was Text Boxed, Lady Bug and Faux Ribbon. I was almost caught up until I read on Nichole's blog that they will be releasing FIVE new sets in July. C'mon, give the bank book a break! Can't wait until the 15th of July!

The last card on the right is also combining two challenges; Kerry's Sketch 28 and CC119 at SCS. So, for Kerry's sketch I used Creamy Caramel, Real Red and Barely Banana. I'm so glad to have ALL the colours now, I can't tell you! Although you can't really see it, the Real Red strip has been stamped with Real Red ink and, of course, the stamp set is Text Boxed from Papertrey Ink. It's a very simple card but I like the clean look of it.

OMG! I think this is the largest post I've ever made and my fingers are worn to the bone. However will I stamp tomorrow! It won't be easy, but stamp I will. Thanks for checking in and have a wonderful day/evening. Be back soon!
