Just a Thought

There's still time! Fortunately the Craft Us Crazy Challenges last for TWO weeks, so you still have time to participate.... but hurry. Time is moving along. Speaking of moving, Craft Us Crazy is going to be taking a wee little break while the "owner" moves across country, so this is the last Craft Us Crazy Challenge until July 5th.

April 26 - May 9

Theme: Favorite Stamp Company and/or Found Inspiration

Uh-oh! I don't have a favorite stamp company - I love lots of stamp companies! Sooooooo... I decided to go with my first love. LOL! It's hard to believe now, many years later, but when I started stamping, the only stamps I really knew about were Stampin' UP! I loved their products and getting together with new friends at Stamp parties. So, in honor of Stampin' UP!, who has been responsible for my new love of most things stamping, I used all Stampin' UP! products for this card.

It's difficult to tell by the picture, but the doily is embossed with red embossing powder. It's really quite stunning in real life.

On the inside I used Versamark to stamp the doily image in the corner:

I can't wait to see what YOUR favorite stamp company  is. Hurry.... time is running out!

Wowsa, this is spectacular with that fab red doily! I began with Stampin Up too and although I've added a lot more companies to my shelves, I still go back to the old faithfuls.

Really pretty card. I so like the doily and how you 'shadowed' it on the interior of the card. I too thought that SU was the one and only back in the day! ;)
