Stick Out Your Tongue Day

Good morning! The weekend is over again and it is a brand new week. We had a pretty good weekend. The weather held up well enough that I could get out and work more on the new flower beds. I have a few more perennials to put in and that is it for the year.

Since it is Monday, that means it is another Practical Scrappers week! Our challenge for you is: Use up your year old stash! We all have some old stash that is just waiting to be used up! Our sponsor this week again is Digi Doodle Shop. The Grand Prize Winner will get their choice of three digis from there!

I used one of my favorite images sets from Digi Doodle:

Full of shoe-y goodness:

Oh, so what is my one year stash - well it's this little button LOL. I cheated a bit on this challenge.

Rubber stamping is definitely not my strongest attribute, but the gems are added to take the focus off the blotchy ink LOL:

Card Ingredients:
TPC Studio Girlfriends papers; Recollections cardstock; Digi Doodle Shop image; Copics; Stampendous! Kaleidoscope embossing powder; Studio G stamp; Craft Smart Black ink; Celebrate It ribbon; Recollections gems; random button; twine.


Be sure to stop by Practical Scrappers to see what the rest of the DT came up with! You won't be disappointed.

If I have enough time tonight I hope to get another Christmas card done. Fingers crossed! Stay crafty my friends.
