Sometimes my cards are channeling my inner self help guru, sometimes they're work trains of thoughts coming out in artistic means, sometimes I follow a thread with a challenge and see where it ends up. Today, these three cards are all for the Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge, to use one of her stamps and an Avery Elle stamp. It was a great chance to pull out my limited collection of their respective stamps. The first card also works for the current Time Out Challenge (Winter, with an extra challenge of white on white). *Edited, I just realized that I didn't use any Ellen Hutson stamps on the first card, oops, my bad. My next challenge is to send this to my friend who lives in Alaska. The second card... you know I am not an animal person, so I'm rarely drawn to the cute animal stamps... but nice to do something a little different and personally I love all this open white space. And my third card is the opposite, trying to use more colored card stock... and since ~amy~ wondered where the coffee card was yesterday.... why not mix and match up sentiments from the two companies?
