I Am A New Challenge Hostess!

If you play along with the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast, and if you played along today, you will already know this news, but if not, I am happy to be able to finally share it! Beginning next week, I will be on a team with three incredibly talented friends hostessing the Featured Stamper Challenge! I am thrilled to have been asked, and LOVE that challenge, so I am looking forward to having a part in it! The other hostesses are Bridget Finlay, Julie Warner, and Stacy Morgan.

Today we said goodbye to the current hostess, Cindy Coutts, as she takes on a new and exciting endeavor in the stamping world. The challenge today was to "case yourself." I chose a recent card to case - my pink Horsin' Around card. This is what I came up with:

I kept a similar layout to the Horsin' Around card. I omitted the ribbon and added an embossed pennant in the middle and moved the sentiment placement. We were to change at least two things.

I just got home late last night from a week-long vacation with my sister, so this is a quick one! Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I will have a quick, fun tutorial, so be sure to stop back!

Paper: Scarlett's Letter (Basic Grey), Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery, True Thyme, Canson watercolor
