MIL b/day card and Stamp-2-Lose Challenge

This is what I've been working on today during the on-line chat. It's my mil's bday today and we're going to celebrate with a small party this evening.

I used my new Storybook cart, and have to admit it didn't turn out exactly as I had planned...far from it. But it turned out okay and I'm sure she'll like it.

Did I mention it is a shaker card too?!! I'm in love with the sounds of the beads!

I also worked on the Stamp-2-Lose Challenge for Feb. 22-28, here were our choices:

1- Use a VersaMark ink pad, a background stamp, and chalks on a card... (stamp the background image with the VersaMark and let it dry, then use chalks rubbed gently over the image to make the background show- works best with white background cardstock/paper)

2- Since Spring is coming (hopefully) soon, use greens and yellows on a card

3- Stamp ANYTHING! It's always better than nothing!

I managed to do two of the challenges at the same time, AND make it into a shaker card. My head is swooning from all these beads! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
