Not too cute to ROCK!

Hi!  Today I played in an inspiration challenge on  I haven't done a challenge in SO long!  The last time that I uploaded anything to that site was 3 years ago!  Crazy!  I didn't realized I had been away from there for that long!  Well, I'm back!  I hope to continue making cards!  As well as doing other things.....

So today's challenge was inspiration from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I chose an image that reminded me of a stamp that I have from My Favorite Things called The Poppies.  Of course, any stamp set that I use will be RETIRED!  I haven't purchased stamps, minus Stampin' Up! because some of those are new, in FOREVER!  Part of the challenge was to diversify your style and do something different from your norm.  Well, for me that's creating a CAS card, or as I like to say, a white space card!  LOL!  To me, white space is a BAD thing.  I love to layer and layer and add goop and flowers and ribbon and then try to fit it into an envelope!  Hahahaha!

But today's card IS all about white space!  And I held back from adding anything more than pop up dots!

That's it!  Have a great day!

Some new cards!

I recently gave away some of my SU! sets to my cousin who has taken up cardmaking to boost her variety.  Plus, I wasn't using them anyway!  After leafing through my binders full of SU! stamps, memories of cards and working at my desk started swirling around in my head.  When I made cards all the time, I was always online and I had a blast!  Then, my attention focused on other things, and the cards fell by the wayside.  I only have really been making cards since that time when necessary.  And even then, I have been known to buy a card instead of pulling all of my stuff out!

Well, a friend of mine just posted about baskets that she is collecting for an event that her son is participating in.  And I told her that I would submit a basket.  A basket of cards!

I had an absolute BLAST using my SU! stamps!!!!!!  LOVE!!!!!!  I definitely need to continue using my stamps!  I have them, why not use them????!!!!!

I made 8 cards.  I am not posting all of the ingredients.  Just pics of the cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!!!
