So sometimes it is ok to be negative! Carla is our hostess for WT742 and she is challenging us to use our negative space a little differently!

The Free For All Challenge is up! I am so excited to join the team! For my first challenge I posted three of my favorite things. Without looking can you guess what they might be?

Now it's your turn! Tell us three of your favorite things, make one of those favorite things your favorite technique to use on a card!

Oops! I don't mean you have to make a card.

I mean, tell us two of your favorite things and for your third favorite thing I want to know what is your favorite card technique.

I always say my three favorite things are tea, slippers, and chapstick. I lead an exciting life. LOL! But only one of those things (tea) is good to use on a card.

Well, it depends. Images of chapstick and slippers can be fun!

You made me grin!

Coffee, matching dies, and oxides. I love any technique that uses oxide inks!

The sea, real books, and the last one is really hard. It's either got to be colouring with pencils or making my own backgrounds.

Running behind on everything this week. I saw the MIX this morning and might be able to work it into a card DH wants, but I'm not going to try to shoehorn the two together, and making what DH needs gets higher priority.

Oh - how sweet, Stacy. What breed, or just a mix? She will be taking a lot of your energy till she grows up a bit, I am sure.

I did get a card made for the MIX using the centre of my TLC sample, but it's too dark to take a photo this evening.

Dogs, birds and emboss resist for my favorite technique. I'm so happy I actually got some time in my stamp room today - it's been awhile. Life is too busy right now,but I need my crafty time! Catching up on this thread, too. Let's hear about your puppy, Stacy!

Questions:

Have you stamp etched?

I have and it's a relaxing technique and it's pretty too.

Roses. What is your favorite flower stamp? Do you have a favorite rose stamp? Tell us a flower story.

I thnk my favorite flower stamp is a small tulip block from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I created the prettiest card using that stamp. I have a couple of rose stamps but none are my favorite. I would love to have a new one.

I love roses because they are attached to sweet childhood memories. We moved around a LOT and really didn't have roots. Now and then we would move to towns that were close to my great grandmother's home, it was always so fun to visit relatives and enjoy the feeling of stability. My great grandmother had red roses flowering at her back door. There was a big swing next to the back porch and I would swing and dream and literally SMELL THE ROSES. Mmmm! So yummy.

That's my story, now it's your turn!

So, we are hey we got 6 whole hours of sleep last night. she is adjusting to us and is tucked into the foot space under my desk at work right now ( snoring)

Is that the thing where you stamp something open with black in and fleck streaks of black pen into the white space to make it look hmmm what ? ( if so, I have tried it and liked how it turned out.)

Oh and tulips, red ones. When we bought our first house I had saved and hemmed and hawed to mail ordered some emperor ones from brecks and they reproduced and that was easy. it was like a first thing I had success with in my yard. ( and I have none at this house because, down in the valley here we have gophers and moles and they think tulips are rodent snacks)

Stamp etched...well, yes, since I made samples for both TLC500 and today. But it's not a technique that I use often, it's more arty than I am. Same as I'm not really into zentangling.

Favourite flower stamp, boy, that's a hard one. I'm low on roses too, I think I have two stamps, and a Penny Black dog holding one. I think my top two flower favourites are both SU oldies: Roses in Winter (oh, I guess that's another rose stamp, but I never think of it when a challenge calls for roses) and Embrace Life .

Did anyone have the chance to play with this week's Sketch Challenge? It features a nice square that is ideal for a scene.

The Ways To Use It challenge is no up yet.

WT743 is all about the number 6!

What comes to mind when you think of using 6?

I will be away from my computer all day tomorrow so if someone would like to link tomorrow's Free For All challenge, feel free to do so!

The Featured Stamper challenge is up! Congratulations to Wanda! Your cards are amazing!

*******Please note that there is a problem with the gallery sorting so not all of the cards (even w/ the correct keywords) are going into the challenge galleries. PLEASE add a link to your card in the challenge thread so that everyone can find your card and comment on it. Another way for others to see your card is by adding the keyword in the card title.
We don't want to miss viewing and commenting on the challenge cards you work so hard to create!

This week's TLC746 challenge is ink blending.

This week's Color Challenge will make beautiful summer projects.

This week's MMTPT568 is a sad one. We are sending sympathy cards to a particular destination. I think cards featuring this week's colors would be soothing and encouraging.

This week's sketch is up!

We haven't chatted much in the last week so how is everyone?

What crafty projects have you been working on? Link them so we can see!

Did you play in a challenge last week? If so what did you like about the challenge?

How about this week? Have you played in a challenge this week?


Last week, I created this fun card without any stamps. Framed Pup.
I also played in the IC challenge last week. I was the hostess so it was easy to like something about the challenge! Haha! The author of the blog which I showcased shares other artist's works. Lots of embroidery and digital illustration. Very imaginative with lots to inspire. I found a wonderful page of underwater art and posted THIS card.

So far I have not played in a challenge this week but I am working on cards for a new release for the 14th. Today is photography day for me and I hope to create one more card.

Your turn! Tell us about your crafty time.

Howdy strangers!!


It has been ages since I have stopped by here! My stamping has been intermittent lately, as I had some other things going on (much less fun). I am currently on the SC design team, so at least those cards are made and uploaded. I have a lot of cards from past challenges that still need to be uploaded.

I enjoyed this week's sketch because it prompted me to make some fun backgrounds which I had not done for a while. If I actually cleared my stamping space off more regularly, I'd have the room to do lots of these background panels.

Lee, Misti, & I are gearing up for the summer VSN. Chat thread link is in y siggy. I hope you all can join us!

WT744 is such a fun challenge. The gallery is overflowing with cuteness!

For this week's MIX challenge we are getting out the bubbly! (check out the challenge for the details, it's not what you think)

crafty time? bwahahaha... ( seriously I am timing my self in 3 song intervals to go upstairs when I "think" Izzy is asleep... ( I almost have the top done for the IC tonight) and that's about it.
however she seems to sleep in at least a 5 ish block hour at night now and growing so fast so, I have my fingers crossed I will have crafty time sooner or later.

I really like the sketch, ( have not clicked the other links as of yet)
