Celebrate & New Fun Challenge

I'm so happy my mojo from the holidays seems to have returned and I'm feeling the "itch" to stamp more at night.  I was able to get some quick cards done yesterday using the new 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge and last weeks Retro Sketches.

I didn't write down my time but I know it was under 6 minutes to do it.  The one thing that is hard to tell on the photo is above and below the sentiment there are score lines.

I really liked how this turned out so I put together 3 more cards just like it and they all used up patterned paper scraps.  I think I will be making a set of these cards as lord knows I have scraps laying around.

Speaking of patterned paper scraps, my friend Beth Matson and I wanted to invite you all to join us the second Monday's in the month (next one Feb 11) for our friendly new challenge, The Paper Hoarder's Push.  We will challenge you to use up (or as much of it as you can) a patterned paper pad.  For February we will be using Carta Bella Devoted.  Perfect time to get a head start on some Valentine cards.  We'll share ours on Feb. 11th and hope you will join us.
Card details:
Stamps: Celebrate Limited Edition set from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Georgia Pacific White, My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 3-Ruby and On the Bright Side 2
Inks: Memento Gray Flannel
Embellishments: Scor-pal for scoring and Kaiser Craft Silly Season jewels

Cute card. I love the bit of sparkle from the sequin.

I'm excited for the challenge next month. I hope we get some people to play along.
