Hello blog friends!!!  

Guess what????  It's time for another designer's choice challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  The super talented and creative Joy Hadden is the Rock Star challenging us this week and she wants us to clean up all our left overs!  That's it, her challenge is "left overs".  Joy must know my craft table needed cleaning off...she had great timing on this one.

I usually have a little baggy sitting on my craft table with all sorts of paper pieces, images left over, dies that I'd cut and didn't use....I'm sure you know what I mean.  So for Joy's challenge, I was going through my bag of left overs and found some paper combinations I liked and this image I had stamped, cut and colored quite some time back.  Within minutes, this card came together.  Love it when that happens!  

The stamps used came from Pairings stamp set, #9304-L "Martini" and #9316-E "Cheers".  I traced the cut out image on a piece of left over black card stock to create a "shadow" effect for the martini and another strip o the same black cs leftover to give it a "table".  I had just enough pieces left over to make the label and finish it off with some punched edges.  

For more "left over" inspiration, please check out the Rock Stars then come on over to The House and play along with us.  You could win yourself some awesome RI stamps!

Happy Sunday, blog friends!  

If you like parties, you're going to LOVE the week long party that starts tomorrow at Outlawz Challenges.  There are some awesome prized to win and some fun games to play.  Tell all your friends and join the fun at The Outlawz Challenges ALL WEEK!!!! And find out lots more about the Outlawz on their FaceBook page.


It's Sunday, and Sundays mean there's a new CAS challenge at Outlawz.  This week, The sweet and talented Pryn is the challenge leader and here is her challenge  -  

"Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble"! This week we challenge you to create a CAS card or project that features something on it that you can cook or stir.  This could be coffee, a love potion, spaghetti, a martini...the ideas are endless!  Get those aprons on and whip something up to feed our inspiration!

My card used an image from Repeat Impressions #4517-F "Tea Pot" which I colored with Copic Markers.  The "flames" were created with a Martha Stewart leaf punch I punched out of two different shades of orange card stock.  I then added a touch of my Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle.   The "sticks" under the flames were thin pieces of scraps I added for dimension and effect.  The embossing folder is from CuddleBug and I think it's called "sticks".  (not sure).  The sentiment is from (one of my favorites, Lockhart Stamp Company and Ellen Hutson (another fave of mine).  

I hope to see you at THE PARTY!!!!  Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by.
