For those of you who find it hard to just play with your creativity, here's a perfect little way to try out new color combinations, try out a new stamp set, and make use of ever-growing scrap piles!!

These are little 3 inch square cards to use for gift enclosure cards. These are nice to have on hand to pop onto a gift quickly.

Give it a try, but first and foremost, HAVE FUN!

Last weekend I had such fun on splitcoaststampers. com's virtual stamping night event. This was the last card I created for the event and I did about 10 or so during the course of the weekend. This one was selected by the hostess for the honor gallery. It was a very pleasant surprise for me. I loved this set that was offered in one of SU's mini catalogs a while back. Unfortunately, it was never selected to be a part of their bigger catalog, but I have always enjoyed using it any time I get it out of the box!! This was done using paper piecing as the techinque to use for this particular challenge. A great big thanks to all the fine ladies who coordinated this month's event. I don't always have a free weekend, but I sure was glad I had last weekend free to just have fun and be creative. It is so good for my soul!!! KWIM?
