Hey there!

Yesterday's card got me thinking about challenges and how I should be looking for more of them to enter. Whether it is for a bit of added design guidance and direction or just a bonus incentive to use certain stamps I think adding a few back into my new routine will be a big help. So before I settled on a stamp for today's card I went and checked out some of my old haunts. When I saw the "Anything Goes" challenge over at the Sugar Bowl I decided to play along.

I ended up going with the super cute My Best Friend stamp from their Scrapberry's range of clear stamps. I've had her for ages and it felt so good to finally ink this little lady and her furry friend up. Surprise, surprise... another CAS design but with a larger stamp like this I really didn't want to clutter it up too much. The papers are a classic favorite of mine from Basic Grey, I still believe a girl can never have too much orange and it is especially pretty when paired up with this soft mint color.  :)

Well, I guess I should wrap this up and get myself ready for work.
