Snap out of it!

I swear I say this and look at my husband with this face... a lot. Poor hubby...

I do love this stamp. I just adore all of my Mary Engelbreit stamps ! I have had these for at least 10 years, if not longer. Mary never goes out of style... I made this card using the sketch for the challenge at Sketch Saturday, and because I think this image is way too funny, it is perfect for Stamptacular Saturday's challenge :) When using a ME stamp, I almost always decide to use red polka dot paper, and using some blue and white, this colorful card is just right for Cupcake Craft Challenges too! I like to make the inside pretty too, even if it is just layering the coordinating papers.

I love trying to add as many challenges as I can into a card - it is fun to see how they can all come together. Being the nerd that I am, I have this little "spreadsheet" I create to keep track of challenges... Please tell me I am not the only one who does this? Am I that obsessed and nerdy? Fact is, I get so excited each morning, checking out the challenges of the day, printing off the sketches, making notes which color combos would look good with each sketch... And actually, after this post, I am taking my Thursday list down to my messy studio and going to watch Buffy, drink coffee, and make some cards! I think I might do some altered stuff too... I have these paper mache houses I have been dreaming about...

Paper: Basic Grey, BoBunny
Image: Mary Engelbreit
Embellishments: Button
Ranger ink and colored pencils
