I apologize for the lack of posting lately, but with Memorial Weekend and switching to day shift at work for the summer(and I am sooooo not a morning person!) I havent had much time to get any stamping done. I made time today and sat down to make a card for 2 challenges...the Jingle Belles challenge from May 27 and this weeks Shopping Our Stash (SOS) challenge.
The Jingle Belles challenge was to use 3 different types of designer paper, and over at SOS they want us to dig into our stash and use our oldest stamp or digistamp. I went and grabbed a stamp that I've had since I first started stamping back in 1994. I have no idea who made the stamp...I *think* I got it when living in northern CA but dont remember for certain. All it says on the stamp is "©1988 PSX Petaluma CA K-347". I love Christmas and I love stamps of houses that remind me of where I live, or have lived. I think I probably got this stamp because it reminded me of Christmas in the woods in New England but now that I live in Alaska it totally reminds me of the cabins that surround us here! I used 3 different types of DSP mounted on Crumb Cake and then Cherry Cobbler cardstock, while the main image is layered on some Early Espresso cardstock.
**Just to get off track for a moment...mentioning New England...my hometown, Springfield MA, was hit with 2 tornadoes yesterday. If you could please keep the people of Springfield and the surrounding towns of western MA in your thoughts I'd appreciate it.**
