In Stamping Mode

Mojo Challenge #85 and some news!


As a little Mother's Day treat, I got to spend the evening with some fantastic friends stamping over at Archiver's for Scrap Mania. Would you believe, that over the course of FIVE hours...all I completed was this card? Yeah, I just wanted to bash my brains in by the end there. A while back, I had bought a steal of a set of stamps over at Costco. I swear...those stamps cause me nothing but grief!!! I guess they are made with the most horrible clear...whatever they use, and won't take on any ink (unless it's chalk ink). FRUSTRATING!!! Anyone else know what to do with those kinds of stamps? They almost made it straight into the trash! I had to use a Hero Arts greeting because the greeting from the set looked like utter poo.

At any rate...I have some SUPER exciting news to share!!! I am a Guest Designer for Shimmerz!!! WOOOO!!! In honor of this momentous occasion, I used some Shimmerz on the butterflies and also right onto my card!! Here's a closer look...



Oooooh...aaaahhhh. :) Love that Shimmerz!!!

Hope you are having a fantastic weekend and a wonderful Mother's day (to all you moms out there!)

Congratulations on the guest designer job! I love the Shimmerz stuff and am so jealous that you got to crop for 5 hours at Archivers! We live 2 1/2 hours away from the closest Archivers here!

Congrats to you!! Very exciting!!
I love love love this card. The butterflies are great! That's awful that the stamps were so hard to ink, but they paid off in the end.
