1st stamp I purchased

this card was made with the first stamp I ever purchased. after saying I was not getting into card making, I got sucked in, and now have many stamps, this one is still one of my fav's though. I totally scraplifted the wreath off Paige's card in last weeks SOS challenge. good idea.

Ribbon card 2 - thank you

I made this card using my impressionabilities plate. I thought this was the most useless thing I ever bought it has not worked for me from day one. so I used it for a different purpose. I inked the plate, then carefully taped it on my paper, then I used my markers to color in the butterflies and flowers, then ran it through my big shot, and voila, it gives a batik effect. I died the ribbon to match the green used to ink the plate.. I'm entering this in the ribbon contest for the SOS challenge.

Ribbon card

I made this card for the SOS ribbon challenge. I think I meet all the criteria. the ribbon I chose, was the oldest ribbon I had purchased about 1989 when I was into flower arranging. the ribbon itself is quite papery> this is the oldest ribbon I had and I have tons of it in all different colors, it was time to use up some of my old stash. I did the braiding which is a new technique for me. I colored the little mice which is also a new technique for me, and I used up some old scrap paper.

my house is quite small so my bedroom is also my craft room. I have one corner that is designated as the craft area.

I am entering this in the Scrapping our Stash for their first challenge...you can find them here:
