First of all, I am not dead. Nope, just mostly comatose. I think I see a pattern with me and Stamp Camps and no days off and ergo: no blogging. Not a good combination. I'll take more time off next month.
And no, I have not forgotten the Spot the Mistake contest. So, yeah, I kinda missed making the announcement on Saturday, though I did go through my Copics to find the duplicates. I have 6. SIX!
Now without further ado, let's go over those entries:
8 out of 8 of you saw I missed the 't' in 'It'. You are correct: the CARD fell over, *I* did not. 1 person offered up a second possibility that "week's" shouldn't have an apostrophe, but no, it really does need one. Sorry, no extra credit for you. And the funny thing is: I thought I had a different mistake than what you all found. Hmph.
So I have the opportunity to use random dot org to pick a wiener ... drum roll, please ... here we go:
Comment #1 is the Wiener! Congratulations to Dorothy C. YAY! Woo-hoo! (The crowd goes wild!) Please email me with your mailing address so I can get these out to you.
Okay, now on to some stampy stuff. I found the need to give the evil eye to someone on Twitter today, and it prompted me to think about a certain lady stamp image and sentiment combination. I also decided to use this week's sketch from the My Favorite Things blog:
Yeah, it's a little busy, but it's perfect for using up matchy-matchy papers from the Remnant Heaplet. Wanna see? Lookie:
All left-over papers from a box I made last summer. I switched it up a little bit by layering the pieces under the oval because I ended up with two of the same patterned pieces together. Bonus: I used up some Vanilla remnants, too. Yay, me.
I actually made that card second, but it more closely matches the sketch, so I posted it first. NOW you get to see the version I like better:
I kinda like the sentiment at the bottom. I do. Oh, and notice that shape for the sentiment:
It's made with an SU punch. Not a new one, nope. One some of you already have in your crafty room! It's the Decorative Label punch, and I learned how to make this by watching this video. I used the very first one I made, so it is a little wonky, but I tried sanding the corners. It's definitely passable.
I hope to be back stamping the rest of this week so I can make a dent in all the sketches I've been printing! So many ideas ... so little time.
Thanks for stopping by!
