Sunny Challenge Blog!

Good morning! Happy Labor Day! (Of course, if you work from home, there are hardly ever days off or holidays.... :D)

The girls over at Sunny Challenges are wonderful stampers, and they've started a blog to encourage creativity and - well, let's face it: there are days when your mojo walks out the door. :D Now, I haven't had a lot of trouble with that lately (especially for cards!), but it's served well when I want to procrastinate doing something that needs doing. :D (ROFL! Those of you who know me well, know how true that is!)

Anyway. That's what I'm going to share with you today: my challenge creation!

It was fun - and except for the ribbon addition, is a layout we've often used for simple cards.

Card stock: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White

Ink: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler

Stamp set: Many Merry Messages

Accessories: Soft Holly Stampin' Around standard wheel, Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, modern label punch, 1/2", 3/4" and 1" circle punches, red glitter paper, dimensionals, Snail

Combines some of my favorite things - bling, Christmas, and holly! :D

Let me know if you try this challenge - I'd love to see your creation!

I don't know about the weather where you are, but we're at 62 degrees and rainy here in the Nashville area because of the tropical storm!!! Makes for GREAT fall weather, but I know Labor Day is "supposed" to be the last hurrah of summer. :D I have to tell you, I'm lovin' it! It's GREAT stay-inside-and-create weather. So. Be SURE and take the time to STAMP something!!!!!
