Simple Somethings - CHALLENGE

Hi All, Happy Friday!!

We have another fun challenge for you this week, but before we get to the challenge we have a little business to take care of first. This week we are celebrating 6 months of challenges! We can't believe that it's already been that long! We want to thank each of you for playing along every week, leaving wonderful comments on the design team samples, and for cheering us on with over 40,000 hits! Big hugs to all of you! It;s been great to see all the fabulous creations and meet all of you wonderfully talented people! We are very lucky!!


We also have a special blog candy offer in honor of our 6 months of stamping with you. We are offering up stamps and a t-shirt, all of which were donated by some of our wonderful sponsors! Anyone who participates in the challenge this week and comments to THIS post by 7pm EST on Thursday, November 13th will be eligible to win these goodies. If you are the lucky randomly drawn winner you will receive 2 stamp sets from That's Jazzy Stamp Dreams, one large background stamp from Innovative Stamp Creations, and a Got Stamps? t-shirt from Stampmom.com Shirts.

Now, let's get to our challenge! This week is Simple Somethings. Make us a card using only one layer of cardstock. You can embellish it, stamp it, color it, do anything you wish, but you must only use one layer! That's easy right!!?? Have fun with the challenge and good luck to everyone.

Go and stamp something simple!

Congratulations on your 6 months of challenges and I look forward to many more :).

I've used one layer but applied it to my card, I hope this is acceptable but it's a messy technique to use direct to a card.

Hope you like it

WOW - a lot of people stamping this week!! Here is my take - I took out the ol' light box & embossed - I've had that thing for about 5 years, and never used it...it was nice to finally use it! Thank you for the challenge!
