Tomorrow is the absolutely LAST day for the cards for the ANNUAL BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE to reach me, everyone! It's been a BLAST to receive them; thank you all for taking such painstaking efforts for the contest. I can't WAIT to set up the gallery for y'all to start voting! :)

So, it's been crazy around here. :) Last week was the RED, WHITE, & BLUE class - we had a GREAT time! My friend Becky made it here on a whirlwind trip - more about that will be on my personal blog at some future time. :D Here are two of the projects we did:

This one is Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, and Ruby Red. We faux stitched the stripe and the blue field, then used a dimensional to pop the star - from the soon-to-be-retired LABELICIOUS - off the field. Simple but effective, yes? :)

Here's another one:

Really super-simple again. We used Real Red CRAFT ink to emboss the letters from BIG DEAL ALPHABET with Irridescent Ice EP. Layered the stamped strip onto Brilliant Blue and Real Red CS, mounted that on Whisper White. Super-simple! And inside, we stamped "Happy 4th of July" from a retired set.

I still have a couple of projects to show you, but I can't seem to stop getting in this "design then teach" loop! AUGH! :D

Keep watching for the link to start voting on the ANNUAL BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE cards!!! :)

And if you haven't stamped something today, whyever not?!?!? Goodness! Take the time for YOU - and STAMP SOMETHING!!! :)
