Friday's challenge and....table dancing??


Ha! Did that title get your attention? ;o) It is not what you think! First, the challenge. This week we had to use Green Galore, Turquoise, and pink on our projects. I made a small pink card with a blue flower. The flower is from the 5 petal punch from Stampin' Up! as is the leaves. I sponged th edges on both to add some depth. The swirls are from the baroque motif stamp set, the dotted tag is from Be happy, and the thank you is from Enjoy. All SU sets. You might notice the background is blue.....I don't particularly like it, but my desk was completely covered and, well, this paper was a handy background. I think I'll go back to my white backgrounds!
Last night was our stamp a stack and scrap night. We had a great group of ladies! This is a picture I snapped as we were just getting going. It kind of looks like a dance on a table, but really, it is a fan adjustment. You know how stampers can work up a sweat! We had to keep it cool in there! I'm glad we had some brave souls that were willing to brave a table tower to make us comfortable. I meant to take more pictures of the evening, but, we were all having so much fun I totally forgot! Oh well, next month! I'll share the page we did later. I need to get my pictures printed first.
Tomorrow my daughter turns 16! aaaahhh! You know what that means, yep, my parents are getting reeeeally old! ;o))

Ohh Happy Birthday to your DD - my DD turns 17 on Tuesday! I wonder where the time went? LOL Thankfully - I have it balanced out as I have younger children so while I deal with teenage angst - I have a 3 yo to enjoy the *cute* in the children! Your card is wonderful! Love what you did for the challenge!

Fun card, and I like your background. Loving those swirls!

It looks scary up there so high on the table, but then again, I don't DO heights...even low level ones like that.

Happy Birthday M! I can't believe 16! I still see her as 11/12 and the girls running from house to house! K won't be 16 until Dec. but she did pass drivers ed last week and is looking forward to getting her license! Wish we could be closer together - then I might be inspired to get some crafting done!
