SCS Challenges

I took some time today to play in a couple of SCS challenges; Mix-Ability #4 - using water, and Featured Stamper  #316; stampinandrea.

This Mix-Aability challenge is fairly new over at SCS, and it is just fun!  I am always late since I work on Fridays, but at least I took the time to play [this week]. I really love to play with water and spritzing.  While Dina showed 3 different ways of using water, she didn't show the one I love -- inking an acrylic pad, spritzing with water and stamping.  I love the effect of this!

I used an older SU set [that's all I have in SU is old ha!] Mixed Bouquet, with a sentiment from Hero Arts, Good Friends.

I don't know Andrea but, she had a fun gallery [in my style].  I CASE'd this card;




While I CASE'd Andrea's card, I also made my butterfly embellies! Yesterday, I went shopping with my online friend Peggy [who was visiting Arizona for the week end] and I saw these at one of the stores:




Needless to say, I thought I would save money and make my own!  I have to say, I am rather thrilled with the way they turned out :). I am also entering this in to Less is More's challenge - piercing.

Speaking of Peggy, here is a photo we took of one of the few brick and mortar stores in Chandler, Arizona;

That's Peggy on the left, Nic [store owner] in the middle, and of course me. We shopped till we dropped and had a blast!  Thanks Peggy for a fun time [and lunch!].

Thanks for stopping by~
