A few VSN challenge cards

Despite my best intentions for this past VSN or Virtual Stamp Night last weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, I only managed to make two cards for two challenges. Between planting flowers, fixing up the house, visiting family and rooting on the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup playoffs, stamping time was very limited!

I made one card for the final challenge of the weekend to pull out a stamp set that has languished on the shelf. This set not only has languished on the shelf, I had it in the 'for sale' pile. I think I"ll pull it out again. The best part is that I got to use so many of my bright PTI buttons!

I also made a card for Kelly (schirmcat's) challenge to use versamark. There is a preview of a stamp set being released by Mark's Finest Papers this month, with the most adorable pet images and sentiments--I used the paw prints cutting across the top panel to the main image and it is looking back at the sentiment. Be watching for the team blog hop coming up mid month to see the other sets being released this month.

Thanks for looking, have a great night!
