Yes! Let’s celebrate and have some fun!

I was FINALLY using some of my numerous Unity Stamps for a Virtual Stamp Night Challenge on Splitcoaststampers yesterday and came up with this card. The challenge was to “hide” something on the card, so I hid the kite behind the cloud. I love layering on cards and this was so easy!

I met a bunch of other challenges with this card too, so check the supply list for the challenge blog links there.

It’s that time of year again when graduation ceremonies are cropping up everywhere, summer is coming and the end of the school year is in sight.

I love this school house digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique! You can do so much with it! I’ve used it here for my graduation card.

I used lots of circles since that’s the next challenge at TSB. Circles on patterned paper, cut out of paper, embellishments or even the shape of the card – USE CIRCLES and lots of them!

There was a Mini Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers Friday night, so I made this card for one of the challenges.

This DoodleFactory Tropics set is just too funny and it fit perfectly for the Pirate theme of the VSN!
