Little C's Weekly Challenge #9

WOW! Another week has gone by sooooooooooo very fast!!! Busy, busy!

<--- Here's Jen's Challenge #9!!!
I made my 'change of address' cards using Jen's awesome sketch :)
Here's my lil' card:

After figuring out one lil' problem I came across while making this card - I really enjoyed myself - 12 in total!

Here was my dilemma:

LOL, I cut the paper the size I wanted prior to stamping!!!!!!!!!!! How silly was that? AND you know how I feel about wasting paper! Let me tell you - I was able to do it! I found a way and went with it... and it worked!!! LOL, I had to do the opposite - instead of using the stamp to stamp on the paper - I had to put the paper on top of the stamp! It really worked!... and not one piece got smudged or blurred or anything - they all came out great! LOL - I wouldn't recommend ever doing this - and I promise never to do it again!!! I have learned my lesson --->

STEP 1 - STAMP PAPER FIRST,

STEP 2 - CUT PAPER TO NEEDED SIZE....

ha, ha, ha, ha....

OK, ok, stop laughing -

I wish that I would have received my new Copics by now - I really wanted to try to give the 'New Home' stamp a lil' color :( Anyway, here's what I used to make my cute cards: SU! white cards and envelopes, 'A Little Bird's Tale/House' Shimmer Foil Paper from Heidi Grace, basic black cardstock from Paper Reflections, 'New Home' stamp from Katie & Co., 'New Address' stamp from Wordsworth by Rubber Soul, Prima flowers, and unknown black brads, pink and purple cardstock. To be totally honest - I borrowed the stamps and Heidi Grace paper from my sister! I couldn't resist :)

ALSO..., y'all should definitely check out Jen's 'Little C's Online Store'! Your missing out on some really cute stamps :) http://www.littlecs.citymax.com/index.html

Look at what I got a couple of days ago:

The frog is 'Count Burt-Cula' from Anthony & Burt's Halloween stamps - isn't he spooky cute?! I hope I get to use him before Halloween is over!

And 'Get Well Kitty' is a Whipper Snapper stamp - don't ya feel bad that the poor lil' kitty isn't feeling well today?!

I can't wait to play with these stamps after the 'Big Move', lol... poor me ;(... LOL!

I believe that this may be my last 'major' post for a while - I won't have any time for any challenges, etc. for the next couple of weeks - I REALLY need to buckle down and get to packing, organizing, etc. I'll be checking in when I can, commenting here and there - I won't completely disappear... I still NEED to feed my scrap/blog addiction!!!
