Shopping Our Stash #462 // Hand Stamped Sentiments #380 +3 More Challenges

 2 challenges inspired today's 1st card...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS462 ...Today begins a new challenge!!  This week we are challenging you to search your stash for a border punch!!  I was doing some clean up in our storage cabinet and found this Martha Stewart fence punch!!  I had to dust it off and clean it up before using it but I am glad that I found it!!  I can't wait to see what you find in your stash!!

Use a border punch/die

Hand stamped Sentiments // #HSS380 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch worked perfect for my border punch picket fence.  




Today's 2nd card was inspired by 3 challenges...

Just Add Ink // #JAI586 ...A photo challenge!! Along with a summer blog hop...it was so fun following their hop along to each of the design teams creation using this bright summer photo.  My inspiration...the bright colors!! Oh and the fact that summers for our family meant travel soccer!!

INKspirational Challenges // #256 ...A word prompt challenge!!  The word prompt for this current challenge is GOAL!! One of the things I miss most about my kids being grown is watching them play soccer, scoring goals, being a score mom, and just enjoying Saturday mornings on the sideline.

Make the Cards Challenge // #46 ...A theme challenge!!  The theme for this challenge is ENCOURAGEMENT!!  I picked the "you are the best" sentiment from Stampin Up's A Friend Like You stamp set.

Love the picket fence and the use of the tag to stamp your giraffe. Doesn't it feel good to use up the old stash too!? Thanks for sharing with us at Handstamped Sentiments.

What a sweet little giraffe card to welcome a new baby. The tag idea is so fun to peek out from behind the fence. Thanks for sharing your card at hand stamped sentiments!
