I have this story about this card to share with you.
It happened because I decided the other day to take part in the Virtual Stamping Night festivities on a certain stamping board. I made my plan: I was going to all for it. I was going to do every stinking challenge I could on said certain stamping board.
I loaded up my desk with a stack of stamps, a pile of paper of paper and ink and accessories. I was ready, Freddy. 😉 Hit me, peeps.
So the evening hits and the said stamping board kicked off their festivities.
And then like I am like yeah…. man. Bring it.
I can do this.
I open the forum.
And like… holy stinkin’ moley. It’s like party central. There is like a ton threads. And like … oh my gosh… flipping out starts in my head.
“These challenge girls are dang good, man. The challenges are like 10 minutes old and they are already on page 2!!!”
So I am like…
OH MY GOSH.
What do I do? What do I do?
I had this big plan.
Ha. Yeah. Totally tossed it out and just started opening threads and going for it.
Yeah, serious stamping like a mad woman.
I was tossing papers, throwing stuff to the side of my desk to make room and just going genuinely nuts.
No time to fuss about color combos or pretty designs. It was all about getting in done in my world.
I am telling ya now that it wasn’t pretty here in Teri-ville for a few hours. Not even one bit. 😉
My desk… I am not kidding, y’all…. was a hot mess as I worked on it.
If stamping could ever make you pant, I probably did it when I made this card and a couple other ones I made tonight.
Needless to say, my plans of being a super challenge overachiever weren’t exactly fulfilled tonight, but I sure had a fun few hours of stamping!
The waves, sun and words on this card are from Awesome Days of Summer by Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday. The cardstock is from American Crafts. The gem is from my stash.
That is all for now. Be back later.
Thanks for stopping by.
