Always and a Challenge

Ok...I am back with a card this time. I went to Jen's SU party Friday night. I picked up my order from the last show she did and I got this set called Always.

Like I have said a million times, I am not into animals but I do love this bird. It goes well with this MOD paper too.

I made a lot of cards today using this new set. It reminds me of Spring....and goes well with my Spring Fever.

**Stampin Stuff** It's pretty basic here. I used Versafine Black ink for the image and letter "a". I used the scallop circle punch and a black safety pink to attach it to my May Arts Ribbon. The safety pin is definately one of my "go to" items. I don't like using those jump ring thingys....too much work and I am a lazy stamper...if you haven't figured that out yet.

**Challenge** I need to get motivated and start scrapbooking again. I can't even remember the last time I scrapped. Anyway, Simone from the blog Daily Dose of Spazz has another blog called Scrap Your Crap. LOL....don't you just love that name...very creative. Anyway, she offers a weekly challenge to get you using your scrap crap that you have been hoarding forever. This week's Challenge is to use your Primas and Heidi Swap flowers and use lots of them....not just one. Hmmmmm.....I think I can do this challenge.

Love this idea. I think I need to come up with some sort of challenge for my blog. Any ideas. I'd be willing to give away some of my 200,000,000 SU I really don' thave 200 million sets (more like 200) but I'd be willing to give some away rather than keep them here taking up space on the shelf, floor, table, desk and Jen's garage (don't ask). Are you up for free used SU stamps? Leave me a comment and if there is enough interest I'll post a challenge on Wednesday.

See ya on the blog!
