Memo: Time to Party!
Okay, I told myself if I ever broke the Stamping 100 barrier I would do the blog candy thing. The counter is so close, just 2 away as I type this. So, I thought it would be fun to offer a little snacklet, now.... I ever break the top 50, it will more of a full course meal!
The card is part of the Featured Stamper Challenge hosted by Bethie every week over at SCS. The object is to use a card from the featured stamper as a jumping point for a card based on one of their designs. Change at least 2 things about the original card and give *props* to the artist of the week.
Let's just say this card meandered around quite a bit before ending up with what you see. It is very hard to stamp in the early morning after having a household full of teenagers celebrating Morgan's upcoming 14th birthday. And by household, I mean 18 (13 - 15 year olds) teens to be exact - lots of Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, pizza, snacks, and the like, make for lots of fun for the teens, and a need for ear plugs for me!
Without going into a lot of details, this card was made with SU! stamps, papers, inks, and accessories and is 4.25 x 4.25 in size. Exception to the SU! rule is the $1 stamp from Michaels and the caribbean grosgrain.
I will randomly pick someone on Morgan's true birthday, Wednesday, April 25th to receive this blog candy snacklet. The snacklet includes: The card, the 2 $1 stamps, and 3 rolls of that fun ribbon on the wooden spools. Okay, the requisite question is this -
What is your fondest memory of your first teen party? Or any teen party memory, I suppose!?
ETA - tired mom brain I tell ya! I'll share mine, too. I went a number of teen parties growing up, and had fun at so many of them. I have to say what I remember fondly was 7th grade and slow dancing in the living room of a friend's home to side 2 of The Best of Bread. LOL, just dated myself, eh?!
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your kind comments over the last few weeks!
