I Am a VSN Virtuoso

I decided to participate in my first ever Virtual Stamping Night (VSN) on SCS this month. I was going to do it live, but life changed... and I was out-of-town for much of the event. I got back in time to do the last two challenges live, and fortunately they give you a week to catch up, so I was able to complete them all. 

Cards must be completed in one hour or less. I'll post the amount of time it took me to make each one. While I'm not showing pictures of the insides of my card (since this post is going to be so full of pictures anyway), I did decorate the inside of each card... AND that is included in the time it took me to make the entire card. 

I am also only going to share the stamps I used, to conserve space, rather than giving a more detailed inventory for each card.

Wow! Congratulations on your claim to fame! That's a LOT of cards (honestly it would take me a month, lol) but I am not surprised with your talent and creativity - each one is super cute!
