up at customs.
I couldn't wait to ink this stamp set up.

decided to give it a try.I am not sure I succeeded, I had left the white blank ,wasn't sure I liked it,then went and embossed it.Not sure I like this but
as it was getting late, I left it as is.

Accessories:$store Ribbon, MM rhinestones, Pinking nesties,MS border punch,
glitter pen.

Good Luck with Scallop Mania !

Stamptacular challenge for this week is Scallop Mania.
You have to use some sort of scallops on your project.

DH had asked me to make him a card for a girl at work.
She was a student for the summer and her last day is tomorrow.
SO I used this challenge to create my card.
I used my scallop nesties, MS lace doily border punch.
I also used the OCCC sketch for my card.
Trying to play catch up with my challenges.
This week has went by really fast and not much time in my stamp room.
I was off yesterday and spent most of it running around for DH.
He bought another Mustang, 1984 GT, 5L.A very powerful car in very good condition.We are restoring it back to original and I was busy picking up
parts he needed.We manage to get everything we needed from 1 guy.
Hopefully after the weekend all it will need , will be a new paint job.
I can't wait to see it painted, Its gonna look so sharp.
We have taken it on several runs with the car club.
DH is like a kid in a candy store.
