Last Friday night I participated in the Split Coast Stampers virtual stamping night. It is a little bazaar to think that hundreds of card designers would receive instructions, design and make a card within 45 minutes, and then post it on their blog or the SCS website. For Five HOURS straight! Yes, that's right we made 5 different, wonderful cards in 5 hours, got them posted, and left lots of love for the other designers. But then, I guess that is what we all do on a weekly basis out here in card/scrap blogland. It's just that we are not constrained by making a card in 45 minutes.
Well, here are the cards I made. They are not exactly what I would have done given more time, but they turned out alright and I already have use for some of them. The theme this time was Arrgghh! Matie - all about me seafaring pirate friends.
Challenge #1 - Make a card with fabric.
Challenge #3 - Make a card inspired by a picture of the sea.
Challenge #5 - Make a card with wood or wood grain and something pirate.
Well, it was a fun night! I find starting the evening I am a little stressed but as the cards start rolling out I start to calm down. I like to look at what others have created and I especially like leaving and receiving all the comments.
The next VSN is the weekend of May 20th - you should consider taking part. You will be challenged to work outside your comfort zone which is always a good thing!
