Stamp With Us...

Have you seen 'Stamp With Us' ? It's a brand new UK based Stampin'Up! Challenge Blog and there's some really exciting stuff going on over there. I won't give you the details here but it's quite amazing what Monica and Natalie have lined up for everyone. Have a look and see what you think. I've been out of the challenges for awhile, not that I did many, but I'm slowly getting myself a little more organised. As well as sorting my scrapbooking stash (I'm nearly there) I've found some cheap desktop storage in Wilkinsons which I'm chuffed about. I bought a 3 shelf faux leather cd storage unit for £10, quite small but it's perfect for all my ink pads. I also got some suede 2 draw boxes, £3 each, again quite small but they stack ontop of each other and it's made life so much easier having things put away rather than scattered over my desk. I need two more but they'd sold out in my local one - I've sent my eldest off in search of them at his local shop...wonder what he'll come back with?!?! lol Anway back to the challenges....I've actually made a card! yaaay! Stamp with Us have their first challenge up which is a sketch. It took me ages to decide which set to use and what colours, but this is what I came up with.... ...and the sketch was this.....Recipe:

c/s: Ballet Blue, real Red, So Saffron & W/W

Ink: Basic Grey

Punch: Large Star, Scallop Border with 1/16" handheld punch

Patterned Paper: Bashful Blue

Stamps: In the Stars and Starring You.

Accessories: Linen Thread and Silver Brads.

tfl,

JO :)
