I did it again: another challenge card made, photographed and uploaded on the same day.

I'm proud of myself. I think I've figured out how to fit stamping into my schedule again.

Today's color challenge was Riding Hood Red (I used Real Red), Always Artichoke, and Basic Gray. I made one of my favorite "not what the stamps are really meant for" images. The stamps are Papertrey's Sweet Love - the solid and outline hearts. I love turning them into flowers - by putting the points of the hearts together. I created some leaves by putting the tops of the hearts together. I cut them out and folded them slightly to create some dimension. The background it's on is sponged with Basic Gray ink.

Stamps: Papertrey - Sweet Love. Paper: Real Red, Always Artichoke, Basic Gray, Select White. Ink: Basic Gray, Always Artichoke, Real Red. Accessories: bone folder, dimensionals, ticket corner punch, brads, ribbon, clip, cuttlebug, Spots n Dots embossing folder.

OH, I needed to decompress after work today. I don't need more excitement for the week. Really. I'll probably explode - or go crazy. We had a kindergartner break her arm after school (it was obvious it was broken) and since I was the lead teacher there at the time, I got to be in the middle of the action. It wasn't as dramatic as I'm probably making it sound like, but I had a lot going through my head this afternoon.

Is it the weekend yet?
