Bloggers Challenge Week 37

I have seriously felt awful lately for slacking so bad on this group. I was sick and then life was just getting in the way of my stamping -- but I did do the challenge for this week and since today is still Friday, I did it on time *smiles*

I did not really branch out too far -- well, I did, but trust me, after the first card I tried in a circle made it into the trash bin, I decided to try a square. We were supposed to make a card any shape besides a rectangle. I made a square -- but for me that is WAY different because I usually stick to normal card size . . . I like how it turned out even too! My card is 4.25 x 4.25 so it will still fit in a normal card size envelope.

Hope you will take the time to check out some of the other cards that the girls in the bloggers challenge group have done. They are super awesome this week. Their links are on the right hand side and there are lots of them . . . so get busy . . .

Stamps: Sentiment by River City Rubber Works, Chicks from Eggstra Special Easter by My Favorite Things. Paper: Pale plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, DCWV designer paper. Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Timber Brown Staz On, Pink Passion (from the lid of the ink pad to color the chicks) Accessories: Singer sewing machine, silver brads, Marvy Uchida Scallop Punches in Mega and Giga, Purple gingham ribbon.
