In Stamping Mode

What's an ice cream paint job anyway?

I don't know what an ice cream paint job is, but I just loooooved the routine done to that song on the latest episode of So You Think You Can Dance!! I think I've already watched it about 10 times. :) It's a little risque, but girlfriend loves me some body rolls, ROFL!

Anyway, I had a little extra time to tackle this week's Mojo Monday Contest challenge. Man I had a ROUGH time with it! Here goes anyway....


I've been wanting to use my new Christmas pack from Basic Grey so I was bound and determined to use it here! It's hard to believe by looking at the card that I used any stamps, but I actually used quite a bit! The background stripes on the piece cut with the Labels 1 Nestabilities was stamped with Bountiful Backgrounds in retired Stampin' Up! color Rose Romance. Man, remember that color from...what, 4 or 5 years ago?? Hard to believe, but my ink pad was still inky! Woot! I then stamped the border with my Vintage Labels in Old Olive. I must say, that's probably my most favorite part of this card, lol. I hope you like it though!!


Have a GREAT weekend!! By the time this post goes up, I will have already stood in line early Saturday morning at Archiver's for a $7.99 valued pack of paper, LOL! I know, the crazy things we do for free scrappin goods!
