This card is for the second designers challenge for the new Stampotigue blog. I have never taken part in or done any challenges for the sites that have weekly, bi-weekly &/or monthly challenges. But because I love these Stampotique stamps so much I have participated in these first two challenges so far. And I have to say it's kind of fun, I really enjoy it. I will have to check out some of the other many sites who have these types of challenges.
You can find them at http://stampotiquedesignerschallenge.blogspot.com They also just added some great new stamps to the Stampotique site as well, check it out if you get a chance.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! March is just around the corner, are you ready for spring?

I've been so bad about posting lately and I apologize for that. I'm not sure if anyone really cares or not, but for some reason I feel guilty about it. I've been working on three big projects and it's taking up most of my creative time right now. I'm working on a project for Helga at ArtChix Studio. I'm going to be a guest artist on her website and she's given me several challenges to work on. Then I've been working on (forever) several samples for Crafty Individuals. They are amazing people who put out amazing stamps and images and my samples to them are long overdue. And finally, I've been working on a box of goodies to send to Stampington. I figured instead of just sending one piece here and there, I'd just send them a whole bunch of goodies to go through and that way my odds of getting published go up.
At any rate, here is an ATC I recently finished. I love the look of it. It seems almost "haunting". Then I made another card using those awesome character stamps from Stampotique. I just love, love, love those stamps. The characters are so fun to work with.
Can you believe we are approaching the end of February and March is just around the corner? It's just crazy to me how quickly it goes!
Take care and happy spring to you all.
Live life creatively and love life endlessly as we do in SaturdayVille.

This is a Valentine themed card I made for the "Stampotique" Designers Challenge (SDC #1).
I never do challenges, I know they are really popular to do but for some reason I've never tried it or participated in it, this is actually my first. What prompted me to do this one is because it is "Stampotique". I just adore these stamps made by Daniel Torrente and Jill Penney.
"Happy Valentine's Day" to everyone!!

This is a 10x10 stamping project I made using the stamp sheet I won on Wendy Vecchi's awesome blog http://studio490art.blogspot.com
These are from a new stamp sheet of hers that just came out through Stampers Anonymous and on this project I only used the new stamp sheet I won. They were so much fun to play with. It was kind of a different project for me because I was working a bit out of my comfort zone. She is so incredibly talented and her blog and stamps are awesome. Check it out if you get the chance and/or if you haven't already been there.
