Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge card, WOTT#32 and WOYWW#129

Well, mission accomplished... sort of. I got all the stuff out of the hallway (see post below). Organized about 75% of it and even converted a closet into a haven for all my stamps (using an IKEA shelf system that's been sitting in pieces since moving it out of my toddler's room in 1993....yeah, do the math on his approximate age now.) The 25% that isn't organized is in another closet I've claimed because it used to hold toys. The problem is that all the stuff I needed for this very simple card was in that 25% mish mosh. A good incentive to get back to organizing it before making the next card. So, I yanked out a few tools and worked on the kitchen table to get in one last crafty moment before the Thanksgiving cooking begins. Here's What's on Tap this Tuesday (WOTT).


When I saw the latest Paper Smooches Sparks challenge,



it inspired me to use my one and only PS stamp set. I love this little worm from Birthday Buddies. I wanted him peeking out from under the flowers to speak his sentiment. I also love this My Favorite Things stamp and die set called Say What? It has several word bubble stamps and coordinating dies and a number of sayings, to boot. The gorgeous paper comes from a K&Co series called Lotus by Amy Butler.

Funny that a card that looks so simple required a lot of tools. Still it did come together relatively quickly.



Hope you're on the verge of a lovely holiday. Ours will be a small gathering but I look forward to having our prodigal college student son at the table. A small blessing that means a lot.

Link in your What's on Tap Tuesday, if you please. And now that it's Weds, check out http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com for a world wide What's on Your Workspace blog hop that I participate in. Worm out.

Love that you can use a 'serious' dp to make such a fun card! Really, did you just stick to one end of the table? Really!! Happy Thanksgiving Cindy.

That card is really sweet and it all looks pretty organised on that table to me... it would take me 18 years to put together something from ikea too.... all those instructions and Alan keys... takes a while to warm up to these challenges!!
