Have a Yappy Day!

If you hang around my blog on any kind of regular basis you know that a few of my friends and I have regular challenges and I also participate in some the SCS challenges, but beyond that, I rarely participate in challenges (as in challenge blogs). That being said, Lisa, one of the members of the Crafters of Faith group is a guest designer for the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and so I took a look. Their main idea is that participants have to use stamps that are at least a year old on their entries.

Okay, I'll admit it - two things actually.

1. I have a lot of older stamps.

2. I love the pictures of the Retro Rubber Challenge DT members (you really need to take a look).

I was immediately drawn in and wanted to participate, too.

The current challenge (Retro Rubber Challenge #162) is a sketch challenge... so that is fun. 

I used the Stampin' UP! Yappy Day stamp set, circa 2007 to make my card.



I hope you'll check out Lisa's blog post and card, too, since she's the one who inspired me to play along with the Retro Rubber Challenge. You'll find it - HERE.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  2. I'm so pleased that you took a look at us, Jeanette! Especially since you've chosen to share such a fabulous card with us! The simple, bold colour palette is a standout. The detailiing, such as the stitched edges and the tiny bone, really elevate your design. Thank you so much for joining in with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
