Paper Smooches, Hey Chickie!

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend!   We hit a few yard-sales & I found some fun treasures for crafting!  I love finding bargains!

I love free things even more!  Today I used my new winnings from Paper Smooches.  I adore Kim's stamps & these were on my wish list!

Stamps: Paper Smooches (chubby chums)
Papers: SU! cs, Little Yellow Bicycle dp
Ink: Versamark, Memento pads
Other: Kaisercraft bling, twine

Today, Creative Stamp Friend's challenge goes live & we would like to see you use your favorite colors!  Easy peasy, huh?  The challenge runs for two weeks, plenty of time to play along!  Take a peek at the lovely creations from the rest of the DT - Creative Stamp Friends challenge blog!

As many of my regular readers know, I am soooo NOT a sketch person!  I just can't seem to stay focused once the ideas come! lol  But I was told sketches are only starting points so I should just be inspired & go from there!  Well, there is a NEW challenge in town & I really do enjoy supporting newbies, so I played along!  Hope they'll accept me with my wayward ways! =)   Card and a Half monthly challenge blog! Check it out!

Wishing you a joyful day!
