Today is my wedding anniversary. 7 years ago today my husband and I exchanged vows and committed our lives to one another. It amazes me how quickly 7 years has flown by or the 12 years we have known each other. I can't express how happy I am to have him in my life--I love you Stephen!!!
I have been busy working on projects that I am unable to share right now--submissions mainly! But of course I wanted to make sure I had SOMETHING to share on my blog today so I am including a few of the last Dirty Dare challenges.
I had to create a "toile" card and let me tell you that was a challenge in itself until I found this DP *lol* It's a little too foo-foo for me, and I am not fond of this card but it was a fun challenge nevertheless.
Paper: Chatterbox DP, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Bashful Blue
Stamp Set(s): Best Blossoms
Accessories: Scalloped Rectangle Punch, Blue Taffeta Ribbon, Slit Punch, 1/8th inch hole punch
For this challenge, I had to create an ATC. I actually designed this ATC and then "remodeled" it later. I will share my remodel along with other FAB ATCs I received in a recent SCS swap tomorrow. All I can say is they are going to knock your socks off.
Paper: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, My Mind's Eye DP
Ink: Rose Red, Old Olive, Basic Black
Stamp Set(s): Green Thumb (Papertrey Ink), A Treat for You (A*muse)
Accessories: Scalloped Circle Punch (Marvy), Circle Punch (Marvy), Word Window Punch, Ribbon (American Crafts)
Card: ATC 2.5x3.5
I also wanted to share a RAK I received from Sherry Siemens.
All I can say is THAT WOMAN CAN STAMP! I have been watching her blog for months now and I am soooooooo impressed with her growth and confidence in stamping. If you don't already know, she is a member of the MFT Design Team and I am almost positive we will see her work in magazines and with other manufacturers in the near future. Thank you so much Sherrie for making my day.
FYI I will be away from the computer during my holidays. I am hoping to find a few hot spots to upload new information so don't be shocked if you don't hear from me later this week. I WILL be back but it could be as late as Aug. 30th. During my break, I will be hosting a blog candy giveaway. I have yet to put the details together but will say it is for some GOOD stuff...by far my fav giveaway yet. 100000 hits after all is cause for celebration.
Because I love to stamp and you do too!
