I don't pull my stamps out for just anybody.  I have a bunch of stamps. All kinds. All shapes, loads of alphabets. Lots of sentiment stamps too.  I get all caught up in the buying of them and haven't really taken the time to get to know them.  They are like casual acquaintances, my stamps and I.  :)  

 Abby & Suzanne at The Paper Variety are having a Blogaversary Party this week to celebrate TPV turning 1!  The first challenge of the party is to use stamps on a paper project.  And I love those girls to bits, so I stamped.  :)  My card turned out to be a weird combination of rustic and elegant.  Go figure.

You can find the lovely sketch I used at Card and a Half Blog.

Hero Arts stamp, Little Yellow Bicycle papers, SRM Sticker Sentiment,
Recollections paper rose, Offray ribbon flower, Folk Art paint

Rustic and elegant, right?  Thanks to both The Paper Variety and Card and a Half for the wonderful challenges!  TPV Blogaversary Party lasts all week!  A new challenge and prize every day!

Happy Thursday, friends!  I hope happy finds you today.  :)
