Newsflash-Sandra is alive and creating!

Believe it or not Sandra found some time to enter this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  I think she fit it in somewhere between work, driving kids to practice, her other work, hockey, feeding and walking pets, raising money to shelter dogs, and helping out a sick friend.

Anyway she is back…………and has a great card to share.

Sandra loves House Mouse-Plaid Challenge

Now it is no secret that Sandra loves Critters, all critters, big and small……………..with one very small exception………..being spiders.

One of the creatures she loves is House Mouse………….not so much running around her house(Sadie the three legged cat took care of that incident) but as in House Mouse stamps.

Here is her latest House Mouse Challenge entry which requires that the cardmaker uses Plaid:

Simon Monday Challenge- Using the letter “N”

Sandra wanted to enter Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  The Challenge is to create something that begins with the letter “N”.  Sandra didn’t tell me what she was going for, but looking at the card, I would say she was inspired by “N”ature.  She was probably  also inspired by NA NA,  NA NANA! because she knows I love this graphic nature stamp set and only she owns it and I don’t.
