Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash this is a good one for most of us. Have you gone through your stash lately and picked up some things and immediately asked yourself "why did I buy this?" well this is the challenge for you. Take that :WTHeck item and feature it on a project. I didn't have any difficulty with finding things I've been gathering for YEARS, I have more brads than any one person could ever use in 3 lifetimes and lately I have not been using I guess since those stick-on enamel dots were available and much easier to use, but for my project I did have to use brads, but that is not my WTHeck item, have a look you might remember them.

Hello and here we are again half way through July, wow can you believe that? Summer so far has been comfortable except not enough rain for the farmers. So it's the 15th of July and it's time for a new challenge at A Tiny Craft (ATC) Challenge and it's Dogs or Cats the choice is yours. Since I've been doing a lot of cats lately I went with dogs, as I have only used one of the stamps in this set once the rest have been unused until now. It was also the first cutting for the Dog House.

I needed a Birthday card for Tuesday and I've been on a roll with Ink Blending since Shopping Our Stash has a Blending Challenge going on and I was quite impressed with Lauren's offering for the challenge, she dry embossed her inky layer so I had to give it a go. Now since I was planning on using an embossing folder I checked out the almost new challenge "Let's Squash it" it is CAS so what you see next is MY idea of CAS.

Good morning, am so late with my card I just happened to be in the Rogers power outage starting early Friday morning and just reconnecting at 9 a.m. on Saturday so we will have a short post today as it isn't even on the SoSS blog as I type. First the graphic announcing the challenge.

Challenge #474 at Shopping Our Stash is Blending In which means we want to see some form of ink blending on your project. I have done some ink blending but for this challenge I decided to do some You Tube surfing and found a Gina K video from World Cardmaking day 2020 and followed her step by step, now I much admit I only got the ink blending part done while she made full cards, the best part I had fun and got very inky with abandoned coral. (I used distress oxide inks) Now I finished my card as Gina does with a white base, thin black layer under the image and I left the 1/2 inch border as she did and I really like how it looks, how's that for venturing out of my comfort zone?

Hello and welcome to thee Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge for July, I'm amazed at how fast the 4th of the month rolls around. I've made my first trip to stay at the cottage for the Canada Day long weekend, I do a lot of my crafting while I'm here and I keep doubles of a lot of items, Although my card was made at home I decided to save picture taking until I could use the lake as the back drop. So let's get on to the challenge.
