Virtual Stamp Night - Enjoy A Relaxing Day!


How's your weekend going?  Mine's been super relaxing, really.  I've been a little crafty, but not too ambitious.  I've got a big week of visitors coming up, and hubby was at the big golf tournament in Scottsdale all weekend, so I've had the whole house to myself.  Today, I'll probably do all the last minute preparations I need to do to get ready for our guests that will start arriving on Thursday.  How about you?

Friday night, I decided to play along with one of the Virtual Stamp Night challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I used to participate in these amazingly fun weekends on a pretty regular basis, but have stepped back from it the last several go arounds because of my design team commitments.  I realized how much I miss it after Friday night.  But it's kind of nice to be able to pick and choose which challenges I want to play in this time.  I was instantly inspired by my buddy, Denise's, sketch challenge.  It's kind of a funky little sketch based on the Olympics' Inukshuk (say that really fast 10 times!  LOL), but I really liked it.  Of course, being the rebel that I am, I created something that's definitely a "loose interpretation" but all of the elements are there if you squint your eyes and look real close!  LOL

STAMPS: Riding Pretty (Impression Obsession)
INK: Rich Cocoa (Memento)
PAPER: Sno Cone CS (Poptone), White CS (Neenah), Dear Lizzy DP (American Crafts)
ACCESSORIES: Noteworthy Design Card (Slice/Making Memories), Slice (Making Memories), Copic Markers, Ribbon (American Crafts), Stampin' Dimensionals (SU)

If you ever get a chance, you really should play along with one of the Virtual Stamp Night events.  They're super fun, and the hostesses are fabulously talented and inspiring!!  That's it for me today.  I'll be back on Tuesday with my ABC Toys & Crafts sample, as well as some news on a new competition that I hope you'll help me out with!  Have an amazing day!
