my challenge to myself

Hi, I have been very good and trying to tidy my 'stamping ground' in my kitchen today... all week I have happily stamped away using the same A4 sheet of white cardstock to stop the ink getting onto my work surface ...I have stamped onto card and took off excess inks from stamps where I only wanted part of a stamp on my project I let the rest of the stamp hang over the edge onto the white card ...well it started out white... by doing so it left the part of the stamp I didnt want on the card and so over a week of stamping I ended up with a real messy, murky piece of card I was just about to throw away... when I remembered something Karen put on her blog a while ago which found me looking at this A4 mess in a different light.

I have cut out some ATC size pieces from that piece of card and here they are.... I have set myself a challenge to make some ATC's with them ...am I mad ..don't answer that one lol watch this space...


thanx for the inspiration Karen.

Back later... oh, and you can guess I have now been side tracked with the cleaning of the kitchen.

I agree with everyone - they look great just as they are. Throwing away that piece of card would have been criminal LOL! xxx Karen
