Isn't this Susie Squirrel from user_id=6923924&ga_search_query=digitalstampoasis&ga_search_type=seller_usernamesthe cutest thing? I colored it with copic markers. These images are so great and you can print out multiple copies at a time. Love this new innovative idea of ways to purchase images and it only takes up some space on your computer and not in your craft room. I'm quickly running out of room in my stamp room and I'm the type that can't part with even one tool, and then there is my great collection of stamps, ribbons, and embellishments that share all that space too.

This is for the Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge this week that is a card made using an ATC on it. My Artist Trading Card is actually removeable. I figured that if people collect them, they would want to remove them from the card. So if you pull on the ribbon tab, my ATC lifts out of the vellum mini pocket it is resting in. I used some of my groovy guava stash. I just love that color and thought it made a very lovely tulip. Check out the fun at Kitchen Sink!

If you are ever stumped about what colors to put together, go to the Color Throwdown Challenge blog as they have new colors every week. This week I liked that they even give you the option of selecting which green you wanted to use with the tempting turquiose and elegant eggplant. They always have such terrific samples to see each week as well to really get your creative juices flowing. The challenges change every Wednesday, a great way to fire back up on Hump day!!!

I had such a wonderful week last week. I won this stamp set from Crafty Secrets by participating in one of their challenges over on Paper Craft Planet. I just love their wonderful vintage stamps. I love those sweet little children's faces on their stamp sets. I also won the "outside the box" catagory on the contest Kitchen Sink Stamps had going for the past two months. I'm looking forward to KS's new Monday challenges that will give stampers a chance to win some Kitchen Sink stamps. These are two great companies that put a lot of incentive out there for stampers to participate in these fun challenges.
Back in February I went to a great shoebox swap in San Antonio and while there visited the Stamp San Antonio store and found this delightful stamp set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. They are peg stamps, so small and wonderful. It was a great discovery for me, since I was not familar with this company. I made this card today for Splitcoaststampers' featured stamper challenge today. Judi, this week's featured stamper, had used a Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamp on her card that I cased. I thought this was a fun ribbon treatment. I was going for the look of a ribbon being weaved around the wreath. I don't use purples very often, but really like this done with the purples. The sentiment is one of my new ones I ordered from Stampin' Up.
