Sunday Playtime



I took some time to just play with a few online challenges today.  I have not done Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge for a longgggg time.  Today's challenge was to have your image askew.



I have NEVAH played in any of the Our Daily Bread Challenges, as I thought you HAD to use their stamps on all of them.  Well...come to find out, thanks to my friend Fran, on the Saturday challenge you can use any stamp.  ODBD happens to be one of the companies I have not yet purchased any stamps from.....!!!  Well, I actually did both of this week's ODBD challenges, even though I am only eligible for one.  Silke created this sketch for the one I can't enter....but I thought it was the perfect way to meet the second challenge which was to have all focus on the sentiment.


This third one was done for the Speedy's Friends Challenge which was to use an animal on your card......and a bee sure fits that category.

Thanks for the time you took to check out my 'play' cards.  Hope you had time for some fun stamping today.

Yay! What a fun collection of cards! I don't own any ODBD stamps yet either, what is up with that? Although I can name more companies that don't fit into my craft space either . . . don't you love that huge sunflower? They are one of my favorite flowers, near roses! So cheerful! And yes, I think a bee qualifies. I hope a bird does, I have a project ready to post for that using a bird. Nice job.
