House of Cards April Challenge: Color/ Script


I was trying to think of a funny April Fool's story but couldn't come up with anything. Last year, I pulled a fast one on all you readers, but things like that only work once.  
Anywho, I am up in the Poconos with all bestie and other stamping buddies to go to the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Convention. The convention gets smaller every year but it is fun to get away with the girls for a weekend of stamping. The weather is suppose to be cold and rainy but it won't matter to us crafty gals!

This month's challnege at the House of Cards is either a colors, use script or both.



My first card while it isn't exactly script, I really liked it. I used to rather old but well loved stamps from PTI and Hero Arts.




My second card is more in keeping with the whole script thing and colors. It's just OK. Again I used all old stuff. The tulips is actually a wood stamp!!! I betcha there are new stampers out there who even wonder why you would use a wood stamp. They have become so old school.


Please play along with us this month at House of Cards and show us how our challenge inspires you!

Both cards are wonderful interpretations of the challenge, Sue ! I couldn't pick one over the other ;) Sounds like a wonderful weekend you had and yes, I admit I am "old school", too, having oodles of wood mount stamps myself. Heather HOC DT
