New Challenge at PIO

Yesterday, we were all hunkering down here in North Carolina. Some pretty bad tornados were going through and as a newcomer - I had no idea what to do to keep from freaking out! SO...being a dedicated stamper, I stamped with my daughter on the ground floor while the high winds tore 60 foot tall trees out! I also cranked my Cuttlebug to diecut and emboss while the tornados ripped shingles off our roof as if they were post it notes! In the end, we were lucky and our damage was minimal! However, I'd like to ask for your prayers for others who did not fare as well! Thanks!

Now that we have power again, I'm so happy to be able to share my creation with you! Today at Pile It On we have a fun new challenge up! This week we are challenging you to make a card or project  using only rubber or clear stamps (NO DIGITAL STAMPS!!)

My 'background paper' I made by doing a repeat pattern using a rubber stamp of Easter eggs by Studio G. The row of Bunnies is another rubber stamp by Studio G, while the sentiment (inside and out) is by Custers Last Stamp. I also diecut some of my own felt flowers and stacked them with some I found in my stash!

Inside Sentiment reads : "a receding hareline!"
