Blogger's Challenge Friday (on Saturday)...

One of the things that inspired me -- okay, pushed me -- into starting this blog (other than all those Stamping Scrapbooker's emails!) was an invitation from Lisa Somerville to join her Blogger's Challenge Group. Each Friday I will post a challenge card from the group, along with links to the bloggers in the challenge. Of course, I am a day behind -- but better a day late than not at all! Besides, I am still learning the ins-and-outs of this blog thing -- you would think that I would have it down with three websites (patstamps, techniquejunkies and stampingscrapbookers) under my belt. I love a challenge, though!

This is the card I came up with for the challenge.
The challenge was to was to copy a card layout with changes made to the stamps, ink, and card stock – but keeping the actual layout in place. The original card can be found on page 10 of Stampin' Up!'s Fall/Winter Preview Catalog. I chose to do a "Christmas in (almost)July" theme... I think my air conditioning was set too low this morning! In any case, I did change it a little, but don't tell Lisa!

Here are the other Blogger's in the challenge - go take a look at their cards!

Stamp with Sue
All such great stampers -- I hope you enjoy these challenges every week!

Here are the ingredients for this card:
Stamps: SU Snowflake Spot
Cardstock: SU's Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery
Ink: SU's Elegant Eggplant
Ribbon: SU, and Unknown
Other: Stickles (purple)
Would you like this card? Each week I will be giving my Blogger's Challenge card away -- simply leave me a comment and I will randomly pick someone to mail the card to!
Are you part of a challenge group? If you are -- for stamping OR scrapbooking, any company -- and you would like me to join, let me know -- I just love a challenge!

Love your blog. The challenge of using the catty is a terrific idea. I have an SU snowflake set that lingers in the closet. Maybe time to get it out and try something challenging;)
