What A Slacker!! Blogger's Challenge is FINALLY up!

I had a busy week but a really good one! Back to back workshops and classes this week and TWO new team members signed up with me today! No excuses, but I finally got a few minutes to myself to stamp something while I watched the come from behind win for Pittsburgh today!

I really love the bloggers challenge group and look forward to see what all the fabulous ladies have stamped from week to week!

Normally I have trouble with masculine cards, but tonight I was in the mood. I'm rather happy with my chef dude and his matching coat. That's a really simple technique called paper peicing. Just stamp your image a second time on some designer paper, and cut it out. I used a 2-way glue pen to glue him to the front of the image on the white cardstock and stuck him down. Easy peasy and totally fun!
