Stamping just for fun

I finished my brutal research class and had three weeks off before I started back. I did what any self-respecting papercrafter would do with that much time on her hands- I STAMPED!!!! I stamped JUST FOR FUN!!! I didn't stamp for any of my DT blogs ( stepped down from just about all of them), I didn't make any required  BD or other required cards, I stamped just because I could!

Usually I have a specific challenge to meet, so I was a bit at a loss as to what to do. A quick perusal of Pinterest helped and got my juices flowing.

Today's card was built around one of my favorite sentiments from this Penny Black set. I used it a lot. It always goes well with a flowery card.

I added flowers from Hero Arts Lia Griffith mini set. The set included a cute little bird, who perched perfectly on top of the word "hope".

Because I have time, I can enter some challenges. something I haven't done for awhile. Addicted to Stamps and More has a clean and simple challenge. My favorite kind of challenge. Not only that, but they are having a DT call. Maybe at another time I might have thrown my hat in the ring, but life is just a wee bit to busy for structured stamping. But hey maybe one of you will go for it!! My buddy Kylie runs this challenge. I designed for her at Happy Little Stampers. She is a gem to work under. Be sure to check out her stamp company with the same name.

 Hope you enjoyed my stamping just for the heck of it! Hope to be back with some more inspiration!

Lovely, Sue. I love your clustered stamping and all of the beautiful white space. So very pretty. Thanks for playing along at ATSM's CAS challenge this week. Glad to see you playing along. :) Melissa
