Stamp Simply-- No Comfort Zone Here!

Hi all! It's almost the weekend, which means, it's time for one of my favorite challenges -- the Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime102) courtesy of the fabulous Sharon Johnson!

This one is all about getting uncomfortable! :-) Well, not really. Here's the scoop. We all have our stamping "comfort zones." We might not even realize it -- but we do! So, today Sharon is challenging us to get away from it - use something that you've never used. Do something that is not characteristic of what you do on your cards!

And, my card, has no stamping on it whatsoever!

I decided to get "scrappy!" I took beautiful Basic Grey papers, some fun ribbon (Hobby Lobby), a button (the Paper Studio), a Martha Stewart border punch and some stickers and I went to town. The papers and stickers are all from the Basic Grey Lemonade collection. I mean to tell you -- this card was so hard. I have to admit - I am really bad at getting out of my comfort zone! I think this card turned out OK. Something looks a little out of balance. And, stickers? Hhhhmm. I don't really use them much. Then, I don't really do "cutesy" well either. So, there you have it. I got out of my comfort zone but I'm not really comfortable with the results! LOL!

I do think the little bee is darling though! I added some sparkle to his little wings! See?
So, if you stop by and want to say "hi" but don't really dig the card -- don't worry! I won't be offended! Just say -- Hope all is well! And, I'll get your drift!! LOL!

If you want to see how the rest of the team got out of their comfort zone, be sure to stop by and visit the rest of the gals! Be sure to wish my mom Pat a fond farewell! This is her last week with us as the guest designer! Sniffle. Sniffle! It was so much fun to have her around and have her with us for these challenges!! I still think she should be the team cheerleader! ;-)

Pat Adam, August Guest Designer -- My mom... YEAH!!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you can get out of your creative zone and join us this week! :-)
