Stamp Something - our final challenge

Aww it's so sad... hope you'll all join in with our very last challenge at Stamp Something, our challenge is simply to stamp something, so anything goes this week.  We have lots of fab sponsors and some great prizes to be won.  Thanks so much to Denise and Erin for letting me be a part of your lovely team this year, it's been great fun :o)


I've used a Penny Black stamp, coloured with promarkers.  The stripy paper is Making Memories, buttons and card candy are from my stash.

I'm entering this card for the following challenges:



And then I thought I'd make a CAS card using the same stamp... actually I made 2 but the other one is exactly the same as this one...


The border was cut with my favourite MFT dienamics die (again!).  I did consider adding more to this card but I quite liked it as it was... although looking at the photo I'm now thinking maybe I should have added something!

Had my latest blood test yesterday, I just have to wait until Wednesday now when the doc will go through the results.  And today we've been back at the docs for Dex's pre-school booster jabs, which he didn't like one little bit!  Poor thing, he really screamed - he even refused to take a lolly from the nurse... although by the time we got to the car he'd recovered enough to have the fudge I'd got in my bag for him lol :o)

Two gorgeous cards hun. Bet you will be glad when Wednesday comes so you get some answers. Poor Dex, must have really took a dislike to the nurse if he didn't want a lolly! Bless him. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Claire x

Cute cards, I liked this image when I first saw it (here on your blog, I think!) and I like it again, lol. I think you've just about sold me on those MFT dies, I have the page loaded for my drooling pleasure - so I'm off! TFS, Dee ps it's good that Dex had to have his shots, took your mind off your own "needling issues" if only for a little while, lol.

Sarah said...

Hi Lisa, great cards. I like them both, so couldn't tell you which is my fav - you really do have a great eye for detail. I've got my first MFT die today and have had a little play - love it. Can see more coming my way! Best of luck with the Drs appt next week, I always found the phone call to the surgery when the receptionist said you need to come in and discuss with the Dr to be the worst part of blood tests - the mind does overtime!! Poor Dexter with his jabs, Emily had to have hers a couple of weeks ago. Thou have to say she was very good, but then I'm so lucky that she really doesn't mind injections at all (most unlike her mummy!). Sarah

Hi Lisa it is sad to see challenges such as Stamp Something close down, that is about four I have seen saying that they are finishing. However, your cards are quite fabulous and fun, being a crossword lover this image appeals to me big time. The CAS is especially lovely.
