Discover the Best in Yourself

***DON'T FORGET TO SCROLL DOWN MY BLOG POSTINGS AND ENTER FOR A CHANCE TO WIN 2 STAMP SETS!!!***

This week's
Bloggers Challenge was to create a project using Spectrum Pads. Eek! I only own one of these, so it was kind of a struggle for me. I have to say I'm not quite sure of the turnout... but I guess that's why they call it a challenge! (check out my side bar to see what the other members created this week!)

I started by trying to find a solid stamp that I could use with my Spectrum Pad. I just got the Holiday Treats set from Papertrey Ink-- so I decided to try to use it for something other than 'Christmas-y' themed projects. I like it when I can broaden the use of a set and use it year-round. So... I inked it up... then embossed it with Iridescent Ice EP.

Isn't this patterned paper yummy? It's by Daisy D's (Colonial Revival). I got this and the stamp (When You Look - Stampabilities) from my local craft store. I love this saying!

The Baubles on the lower right corner of the card were a surprise for me from Christie Ortman that she included in my Paper Pretties box. I think she bought them from Em @ Stamping Bella.

And finally.... I cut out the sunflower image (colored with Copics) --- from the SU set 'Give Thanks' -- and adhered. The punch that I used for the border is by Martha Stewart Crafts.

I am totally zonked from stamping and uploading so much today! I think I might take a break for a couple of days!
