Hi - Stamp Simply #133

Wow! Sharon has a challenge I need today! Seriously need. Actually, Janine chose this week's challenge, and here's what Sharon has to say:

Friday, April 2 - ssnotime133 - CHIPBOARD -- Today's challenge comes to us from Janine. (Thank you, Janine!) Here's what Janine says: I have a whole box of chipboard pieces that I never seem to use as often as I would like... This week's challenge is dig out a chipboard piece that you have and design your card or project around that piece or pieces if you like! If you don't have any chipboard pieces then you can use a whole piece of chipboard or an empty cereal box, use one of your dies and cut your own. Or cut it out freehand.. Let those creative juices flow and see where your chipboard takes you!

Like Sharon, I've got lots of chipboard that I forget to use, so this is a GREAT challenge for me! I'm using this week's SCS sketch for my layout--which I love! And the stamping couldn't be any simpler since there's NONE on this card, LOL!

I found these chipboard letters at Michaels a while back. I bought them just 'cause I thought it would be a good idea to have them on hand--you know how that goes, right? Well, I finally found a use for them. I like the whimsical look of the different sizes and colors, too. Card construction is pretty simple, really, I just followed the sketch, added some Prima flowers from my huge stash, and punched out several sizes of butterflies for accents.

So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime133 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love! And, help us give a huge welcome to this month's guest designer: Teresa Kline of Enjoy the VA Sunshine!
