The last few challenges ...

I did manage a little stamping tonight. I wanted to get my "name in the bucket" for the last (sniff!) of the A Muse challenges. Here is what I did tonight ...

For the "Last Chance Challenge" ... (I'm flashing back to the ribbon challenge, though this card could probably fit into a number of different ones)
All images by A Muse. Quick and easy. There is stardust and silver sparkle gel pen on everything here. It's really snazzy! The paper is all by SU! and the ribbon is from Mike's.

Here's another card for the "Last Chance Challenge" ...
All images by A Muse. The patterned paper is also by A Muse. I'm really pleased with this simple little card.

I missed out on entering for the Mini Class Challenge, so I'll just enter this one in something else ... the new stamps challenge probably. Here's the pocket card, closed.

Here it is open.
There's all kinds of fun stuff going on with these cards ... souffle pen, glaze pen, IIEP, glitter and glue pen, stargdust gel pen!! The ribbon is from a TVB share.

I am a little nervous to post these last few pictures. So, NO JUDGEMENT please ... I do generally strive to be on a strict stamping budget but it's A MUSE stamps!! Plus, I'm cutting WAY back on my new catalog order from SU! so ... well, enough of my rationalizing here it is.
Here's my Non-A Muse stuff ... some 12x12 paper (isn't that green and brown biz DA BOMB?!) and a bunch of little goodies. Please note the STRANO ribbon (could you just squeeeeeal with delight?) -- it's sitting off to the left in front of the mega rectangle punch.
Here are my new little pets. Kiss kiss kiss. Aren't they just the keenest?
And, as promised, here are the cards we made Thursday and Friday. I didn't do individual shots because, A) I'm lazy and 2) I've seen them posted a bunch of places ... so chances are everyone has.
Alright, I've got to get to bed. I promise to respond to some very sweet emails FIRST THING tomorrow. Thanks, as ever, for visiting!!
