Happy Thursday all!! I had a great afternoon yesterday stamping my little heart out!! Truth be told, I have been kind of stressed out about starting my new job, and all the changes that are sure to occur in our lives because of it! One of the things I have been worried about is losing my creative time - it really is a part of me, and I would hate to lose that!! So, my sweet sweet husband says, "honey, every night, you should take an hour or two and go into your stamp room, I know how important it is to you". Now, that is some guy, right?! I only hope it can happen!! BUT, for now, I have been stamping lots and have something fun to share with you today. Over at the Paperpopsicles site, there is a card challenge posted every week and they are super fun!! There are always prizes to win, and Amy does a fabulous job on giving us fun things for the challenge. Last week was a sketch, and this week was a really great recipe card, which I am going to share with you today! I decided I wanted to make a bright and cheery card for a friend who could use something bright and cheery in her life right now! I used patterned paper rom the Basic Gray Gypsy line (can you tell I LOVE BG??!) and paired it with the yummy Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango - I am REALLY going to miss those colors when they retire *sniff* It was a fun card to make, I enjoyed the challenge! Check out the post over a PP so you can play along too, I would love to see what you all come up with! I will leave you with the recipe, I have to go to the University today, get fingerprinted, and turn in all my employment forms - it is starting to feel real to me now, lol!! I do hope to get some stamping in again this afternoon though!! And, don't forget, only ONE MORE DAY until the FIRST SCRAPANDSTAMPSATURDAY challenge - I am soooooo excited!! I really hope you all will play along - it would mean a lot to see some familiar peeps over there, and I can promise you the prize package is totally fabulous that our sponsor is providing!! Pop on over to the site and see all the spotlights we have on our Design Team members this week - they are wonderfully talented gals!!
