Stamp Simply #133 - Chipboard



The Stamp Simply challenge today with Sharon Johnson is actually being brought to you by Janine! Last month, if you remember, Sharon let me choose the challenge for the first week of April. She thought that was such a fun idea that each month now, the first Friday's challenge will be hosted by one of the team members! So Janine's challenge for us this week is to use chipboard in your creation! Stop by Sharon's blog and you can read all the details for the challenge, and you can also link your own creation using Mr. Linky! And be sure to see Sharon's beautiful creation for today and leave her some love while you're there!

Last Friday evening I had the pleasure of going out to dinner with some old friends at Chili's! And we had the worst waitress! So terrible in fact, that she left a pile of drink coasters on our table! Well, not a pile, but maybe about a dozen. And they're the nice, light-weight kind that you can cut out with Nestabilities! So gosh darn, if they didn't end up in my purse by the end of the night! And I decided to use one of them today for the challenge. My Nestabilities ribbon slide is cut out of the chipboard, and then I cut a piece of designer paper to cover it with my sentiment.
My pretty Spring flowers are from my Beautiful Day Whipper Snapper stamp set illustrated by the fabulous Anna Wight, as well as the sentiment. I very simply colored each flower with a Copic marker, dabbed on a tiny bit of glue and added glitter!

As usual, a new month brings a new Guest Designer to the Stamp Simply team and we're so excited this month to have the uber-talented Teresa Kline joining us! Teresa's designs knock my socks off, and I know you'll love seeing what she has to share this month! After you visit her blog, stop by and see what my Stamp Simply sisters have created this week, too!


Now, say it LOUD with me..... TGIF!!! And not just any Friday, but Good Friday! The blessed day that our Lord Jesus Christ gave his life to save ours. Don't ever forget how much He loves YOU! Late last November, the church that I pass on my way to work everyday had this on their sign.... "The greatest gift wasn't purchased on Black Friday.... it was purchased on GOOD Friday!" Amen.

Happy stamping!
