My First VSN - Wooo Hooo

Wow, I have NEVER made so many cards in so little time. I'm having fun with my very first Virtual Stamping Night - a different challenge every hour and on honour system of the card being completed in 45 minutes and then posted.

The theme is "What does Love Have to do with It?" There's lots of Chocolate and love going around!

I only did 6 of the 7 challenges tonight because I missed the first one driving home from school - I was in the door and stamping immediately - LOL

The Angel card fits a colour challenge - I picked Dark Chocolate which was Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip and Cameo Coral. I love how the Tombow Glue makes her halo stick out and look fluffy.

Next we were to find a stamp set we did not like and create a card with it. We got this Wanted set in Denver at Convention - Not one I'd pick for myself!!!

Next we had to use some of our new stuff. I had to pick from a couple of stamp sets, and also used the eyelet border punch for the 2nd time.

The 5th challenge of the night was to create a monochromatic card. I stamped the flowers from "Inspired by Nature" onto Not Quite Navy paper with Versa Mark and embossed with clear powder - then cut the image out and attached it to the Belle Bleu paper.

I used the Music Expressions image for the Split Negative technique challenge.

While working on my final card for the night I discovered that I do not have one single stamp set with the single word LOVE in it. I find that a bit bizzare and will have to rectify that situation.
For this final challenge we had to pick a quote from the movie "The Princess Bride". I selected "You have a great gift of rhyme." That made me think of nursery rhymes and Little Bo Peep, Little Boy Blue and Baa Baa Black Sheep - so here are three sheep, three hearts and a whole lot of pink!!!!

I'm off to bed because I have to be at the airport tomorrow at 7:30 am to pick up my daughter from her trip to Mexico. I will be warning her in the car that I will be needing the computer all afternoon and evening because I'll be starting on the second VSN phase at noon. We'll see how soon it is before I crash!!!!!

Thanks for dropping by
