Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is Maddy Mason. She has a wonderful gallery. If you have never visited, click on the link and you'll see some beautiful creations. What's even more special about this Featured Stamper Challenge, is that Maddy is undergoing treatment for Breast Cancer and if you want to send the card that you CASE to Maddy, Beth (MyPrecious) is making that possible. What a special thing to do! I chose to CASE this card of Maddy's. Mine isn't quite as "artistic", but I kept the layout and changed stamps and colors. Maddy's card is a true work of art. It looks like a painting. . .just beautiful! Go check out Maddy's gallery and make her a card if you feel so inclined! I'm sure it will make her day!
As you all know, I attended the Louisville Regionals yesterday. We had a lot of fun and learned some neat things! Once I get all my pics/info organized, I'll share some stuff with you! On our way to Louisville (which is a 6 1/2 -7 hour drive for me) we stopped at an Archiver's. Oh my goodness! I have NEVER been to an Archiver's before and I now envy all of you lucky people who I've seen post that you "went to Archiver's today". Oh to have that store in Pittsburgh! I had to stop myself from buying EVERYTHING that I wanted, but I could not pass this up! They had the Stampendous, Changito the Monkey Clear Stamp set! Can you believe it!!??? I didn't even know it existed. So, of course, I HAD to use it today for the challenge! I LOVE that this set has a vine stamp and a rope stamp, not to mention leaves, ferns, sentiments, 2 monkeys and monkey accessories! So, don't be surprised if you see more cards soon with this set! Thanks for stopping by!
