A No Stamping Card

Good Morning! Guess what we're getting more of today........SNOW! Wow, I don't think we've had this much snow since we moved here. Oh I'm going to watch Ben play indoor soccer and then I'm going to scrapbook with some friends of mine!!!! Woo Hoo! I might have a page to show you later :)

I made this card for the Inpiration Challenge on SCS yesterday. No, the inspiration wasn't to make a card without any stamping, but that's how mine turned out. Doesn't happen often, but I like it anyway!

I used OLD Doodlebug papers, chalked the white one with charcoal chalk ink, tied Bazzill ribbon around it. I punched the 'thanks' from a Cuttlebug die out of Bazzill cardstock and then added the primas and of course dew drops! That's it!! I have to admit, I LOVE using old products that I have in my stash, don't get me wrong, I love using the new ones too and do that much more often, but every now and then, I choose to use something I've been holding onto.

Remember that tonight is the last night to post your creation for the 2RedBananas Ribbon Challenge.

If you take a look on the right side of my blog, you will see a new blinkie. Jami Bova has opened her own company doing banners, watermarks, blinkies and all that COOL stuff that we all WISH we knew how to do. Just click on the blinkie and it will take you to her website or you can just click here :) She's amazing, she did the blog for 2RedBananas blog, she did the blinkie for the 2RedBananas dt. Her prices are great! And best of all, she's incredibly great to work with! Go take a look!!

That turned out cute even without stamps :-) I like the dewdrops in the center of the flowers.
