Technique Challenge

I was not going to participate in this challenge. It just did not inspire me this morning. As the day wore on, I kept running the challenge over and over in my mind. While cleaning my stamping desk I came across the two pieces of striped DP from the Basic Grey Wassail pad which I had cut in error last week. They gave me a spark of inspiration and this was the result.

This hedgehog stamp always makes me happy when I see it. I usually end up coloring it in a very different color palette than this. I was glad to have the inspiration from the paper.

Ohhh this is such a cute card! I'm so glad you made it :)

I'm a recent follower of your blog (I'm the Copic nut customer of yours in Calgary, Canada LOL) and I have to ask, since I've seen you mention the "Challenge" with your cards.

Is there a daily challenge posted somewhere that we can all see and participate in? I think it's very neat to have challenges like that - when you look at all the pretty cards you make. It's very inspirational :)

I love that little hedgehog :)

There are quite a few different blogs I follow where challenges are posted. Verve Stamps has one, so does Cat's Pajamas, Hope Stamps Eternal, and one more I found today was the CCEE Stampers Blog. Most of my challenges come, however from Splitcoast Stampers; found at www.splitcoaststampers.com. In the forums, there is an entire forum dedicated to challenges. Each day of the week has at least one challenge going on. Today was Technique Lovers and "Cute & Simple". I'd love to see your work posted in the challenges as well. Splitcoast Stampers is free to join, and anyone can make a gallery where one can share one's work. Happy Stamping! Heidi

Wow! Thank you very much Heidi :)

I will definitely check all these places out.

I'm quite busy right now with my artisan jewelry (holiday shopping/busy season) but sometimes I like to relax and make a few cards for a change of pace :)

I love your work and I've learned some new techniques by reading your blog - thanks for all the great information and inspiration!

Cheers,
Nathalie
