Issuing a challenge!


Hi friends!

I have some exciting news to share. I'm the guest blogger today at Do More with Less! The lovely and talented Yvonne asked me to be her guest blogger this month and not only was I seriously honored, but excited as well!

I have prepared a little tutorial and issued a challenge for you all...stamping on patterned paper! Should you participate in my challenge and post your link at Do More With Less, then you might win a prize. *wink*

A fabulous prize at that!

Some lucky winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to one of the online stamp stores below (winner's choice).



SO what are you waiting for? Go check out my tutorial and challenge and get crackin'! *chuckle*
You'll see how I created this card and several others by stamping on or altering my patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'd be delighted if you participated in my little challenge...
*mwah*
Stamps used: Heart BGs (WPlus9), Balloon strings (PTI), Sentiment (PCD)
