Anything Goes Challenge No. 144 Optional Twist - Real Stamp

Welcome, our crafty peeps! We're shaking things up today! We're still doing our usual JFF (just for fun) anything goes challenge but this time around we are using some of our real stamps! Wow! lol What fun! Right?!? I'm super excited about this. Although digi stamps have their very own perks... much more affordable, saving valuable real estate space in the craft room and being able to flip them for starters... there's nothing like the smell of ink and getting all inky! 
So, I hope you'll enjoy our current challenge. As always, the twist is optional! Check out these makes from my 'Dream Team' using some of their very own stamps!
Also, I hope you notice the new blurb on the right below the labels list. It's to give a heads up for those of you who like to plan ahead. :) I did not add the dates because we're a bi-weekly challenge blog so the challenges are two weeks apart back-to-back! :) I hope the list proves useful!

Anything Goes Challenge No. 142: OPTIONAL TWIST - Wet or Dry Embossing

Hiya, everybody! :D Welcome back for another JFF (just for fun) two-week challenge! My Team has some inspiration pieces to share with you. We hope this will get some mojo running and you will join us for some fun! We do have an optional twist for this challenge. One of my favorites, wet or dry embossing! I've always thought that this technique could always turn a plain card into something very elegant in a snap! We'd love to see what you come up with for this challenge whether you chose to use the optional twist or not! Please join us!

Anything Goes Challenge No. 141

Happy New Year! Welcome back fellow bloggers! My Team and I hope you had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends! We're so glad to see you join us for our first official challenge of 2018!
We have the fabulous Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez sponsoring this two-week challenge! What fun!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I started drawing when I was a little kid and I developed a very realistic style. I usually painted animals and plants from photos, thinking that I would never had enough imagination to draw something without looking at it first. I am so glad I was wrong!!! When I had my kids a few years ago I started telling stories, making toys, and drawing for them. It opened a new world for me. I love making illustrations and I would love if you could sense that there could be a little story behind them. I surely have a story for many of them.
