Challenges Accepted!

By | 06/25/2013

I know that for many people, this is a job.  Running a stamping business and maintaining a blog is a job.  For me, it feels like a lifeline.  I’m having so darn much fun making cards, projects and videos!  I am meeting great people and I love letting myself be creative.  I find it amazing how other people can bring out the creativity that every person possesses!   I feel like I’m splurging on myself for the first time in a very long time!   I am treating myself and allowing myself to just have fun with my stamping and my blog.  Thank you for joining me!!!

I also love a challenge.  I think that’s why this is so much fun.  It’s all a challenge.  Figuring out the technology, finding my creativity every day, getting everything done on time and the list goes on!  My latest challenge is the lighting issue I’m having on my videos.  I’m working on it!  I’ll get it worked out!  I’m also working on my photography skills (or complete lack thereof!).

My challenge today?  I made a card from this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge and The Rubber Redneck Color Challenge.  The colors I was challenged to use today include Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo.  You can also use a touch of white or very vanilla.  I loved this weeks sketch and these colors work really well together!
