Papertake Weekly - it's time for BINGO!!!!

Hey everyone! This is my second post for today, so if you're looking for my Magnolia-licious post, please scroll down.  It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week it's the fun game of BINGO!!! So can you win? We have an awesome prize up for grabs from the awesome folks over at Whiff of Joy!!

So choose your column or row, or fill the board if you're feeling adventurous! I don't know about you, but I adore fun, happy cards. And one of my favorite lines for that is Art Impressions. So here is the latest stamp I got from my local scrapbook store in Reno called Scrapbook Paradise.

I apologize for the quality of the photos. I have the hardest time photographing the bright, vivid colors. The contrast is much too high and it does NOT do my coloring any justice. It just looks like big blobs of bright color on the screen. It really does look much better in person.  So anyway, please join us at Papertake Weekly to see what awesome and gorgeous creations my teamies came up with, and then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Hey everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly! This is the first Tuesday of the month which means anything goes, and your option this week is to use kraft paper. We are sponsored by Lili of the Valley, so be sure to pop over and play along with us for a chance to win. This is a VERY simple (one layer) card I made. Yep...you read that right...one layer! Can you believe it? I can't! LOL! But I did it!

I simply stamped this cute Whipper Snapper Designs stamp called Easter Ribbit right onto the Copic X Press It paper and colored him up. Added a couple flags cut with the Cameo and added a couple nekkid buttons. Voila! Please join us at Papertake Weekly and thanks for stopping by to see me today! Hugs!
