Random Amusing Challenge #19

It is a glorious day here on the beautiful west coast so I had to go for a walk after work instead of going to the gym. It's supposed to get ugly again later this week, just in time for my 3 day weekend (surprise, surprise... I thought the calendar said APRIL!!!!). It's also a glorious day cause I got to play with my new A Muse Love Blooms stamps on the weekend and will be doing more tonight.

On to the challenge... I would like you to use scraps for your card. You can use a clean card base but everything else should be scrap - no opening a new package of twinkle stickers, cutting a new length of ribbon, or cutting into a pristine piece of cardstock. Most of us are guilty of having a huge pile of scraps and not using them. The miraculous thing about the card I made is that I made a bow out of a scrap of ribbon. Just a note, don't get used to this... this is the first time I've put a little ribbon like this on a card... it's not likely to happen again...I don't like the way they turn out when I make them. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword GRAC19. Leave me a comment on this post with your link to your blog or your SCS post. Please link back here so everyone can play - just click on the title of this post for the link (thanks!). As always, if you could use a little A Muse on your card, that would be great. If you don't have any... run out and buy some! If your local store does carry them (shame on them, harass them to do so!), you can order stuff directly from A Muse.

After some of the reactions to my "no colouring" challenge last week Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net, I'm surprised I had any entries at all (hee, hee). Thanks for persevering ladies and doing a fabulous job...and thanks (as always) for playing... check out all of these great creations:
Cheiron, Joyce (zinnia card), Kerry, Debbie, Analyn (way to catch up!), Donna and Dawn.

Alert!!! Next week is challenge number 20 so to celebrate, I will be giving away some blog candy. Be sure you are here next Monday to get all of the details. Share the info with all of your stamping friends... or maybe you don't want to cause you want to win the candy yourself! Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

  2. This card is just super sweet, Glenda. Wish I was able to have seen this before I created these 2 for challenge 19! Next Monday, after Easter, I'll be able to do it up right:
