Hey all!

I have a real quick post for you today! This coming Saturday is National Scrapbook Day and we're hosting a NSD Kick Off Week of challenges on the Scrap-Mart blog. Monday, Tammy issued a Unity Stamps challenge. All you have to do is make a project with Unity Stamps. Simple enough. Here's the card I made...

I stamped the Retro Bubble Frame on a piece of white cardstock and colored it with my Copics (R29 Lipstick Red and B24 Sky). Next I layered the white cardstock onto red, blue and a white card base and cut the center out of the image using my exacto knife. Then I stamped my sentiment inside the card so you could read it through the window. Using my Crop-a-dile, I punched out the large holes in the stamped image leaving the white from inside the card to show through. I found the matching polka dot ribbon in my stash but wanted something more. I didn't have any coordinating red embellishments so I grabbed a clear button and my R29 Copic marker and colored it to match, ran my ribbon through it and viola! I'm sending this card to my aunt who fell and broke an ankle over the weekend. I'm hoping the bright colors will cheer her up a bit.

Tuesday's challenge is a Scrap-Bingo challenge from Veronica. Just visit the blog for all the details! And, just to give you a heads up, I will be hosting Wednesday's Slice challenge. You have until Wednesday, May 6th to post your projects on your blog, in an online gallery or email them in to me at We are giving away some great prizes for participants so check it out! Thanks for stoppin' by today! I'll see you soon!
