a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

This week over at Stampotique Designer's ChallengeValerie challenges us to try altering a page in a book - any book: novel, journal, sketchbook, cookbook, music book, coloring book, dictionary, whatever!  Any book counts!  Valerie said that she chose this topic to challenge herself to try something new.  She said it worked too well and she found herself waaaayyyyyy outside of her element with this one but gave it a go anyway and she hopes you'll give it a go too even if you've never tried one before!!  If you have Stampotique stamps already, we'd love to see how you incorporate them into this challenge.  If you haven't started your Stampotique collection yet, the Stampotique Designer's Challenge invites you to participate using stamps from any company this week for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for stamps at Stampotique.

I will be sharing my creation next week, but wanted to share another card I had made a bit ago with an image I love.  This card is very clean & simple (at least in my book, it's CAS).

I stamped my background with the Spiraling out of Control and then used Girlfriends as my main image.  Two very cool colors, baja breeze and black look fantastic together.

What would we do without girlfriends to get us by?  I know I have made some great girlfriends through this wonderful craft!  This card also fits the August Gallery challenge over at Paper Crafts for girlfriend themed projects.

Hope you will join us over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge using any stamps this week.
