Paper Therapy Challenge #2

Happy Monday Bloggers

We had a really great turnout to our very first challenge at Paper Therapy.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  Congratulations to Kimberly - our first winner! 

This weeks Challenge is a little more challenging - and best described by our fearless leader - Kristin:
This week we have a product challenge for you.

Make a project using the first stamp you ever bought.
If you don’t have it anymore then use the earliest stamp you have.

What a fun way to pull out those oldies but goodies.
They need some lovin too!!

Can't wait to see your stamps.

Here's my take on the Challenge:

This weeks challenge was definitely a challenge for me - I've done cards for so long without stamping that I nearly forgot how to make a card where the primary focus is a stamp.  My inspiration came at Croptoberfest from one of our croppers.  She saw my stamp and asked to borrow it.  She stamped it on a page torn from an old dictionary - GENIUS!  I did the same, reinforced it with cardstock and rubbed it down with my brown chalking ink. I was really pleased with the way it came out.  It's also inspired me to think outside of the box- and I hope it's inspired you too.

In other news, work has been super busy!  It's only Monday and I know it is going to be a long week.  On a brighter note, it's 1 week closer to my Birthday and I can not wait.  I am looking forward to spending time with my family and friends this weekend at the Fair and at home.  I'm also anxious to get some pictures taken of the cards I made this past weekend at Croptoberfest - I'll try to get those up later this week, as well as more details from the Ghost Hunt.
Have a great week and be safe!!
