No Stamping Zone at 4 Crafty Chicks

Hey all! How has the last week been for you?  Well I have been to a conference with my husbands work and then spent the rest of the weekend at Tristan's volleyball tournament.  We had a good time at my brother and sister in-laws. It was all so much fun but really tiring.  Now of course it is time to play catch up...LOL.

Thank you so much to everyone who played in my Boys Dig It challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. All of the creations were marvelous.  This week at 4 Crafty Chicks is our prize week and a new challenge of course.  Our beautiful hostess-with-the-mostess is LORI (Inkingly Yours). 

Challenge #87 
No Stamping Zone
use chipboard, rub-on's, paper, ribbon...but no stamps.

When Lori shared with us girls what our challenge was going to be I was sooo excited.  My brain started working a mile a minute and the result was that my lonely rub-on's were going to be broken out of the wrappers.  The funny part was when using them, one of them said November 2009 man have they been sadly neglected.   So thanks Lori for reminding me that we don't always have to use stamps.

Now I keep seeing all of these gorgeous cards that are clean, crisp and simple.  They are one layer only the card base and they look fantastic.  No stamps and one layer, well you could say I was sweating bricks...LOL.  I think there might be too much white...yes Lori I said it...LOL.  Any way the Rub ons are from Stamping Up.  As you can tell by the one date they are probably retired *giggle*. The words are from Chit Chat and the flowers are ??. and the paper is Whisper White. 

Thank you so much to Kasey and Heather for your beautiful and wow popping creations this month.  We have truly been lucky to have you share our challenges with us.  Be sure to stop bye and see all of the girls their work is just amazing.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:

  6. Tamie, I keep forgetting rubons too, so you're not alone. This card is fabulous. I struggle with CAS. I've had a fantastic time as a guest designer with you girls.
