Jen's Sketch Challenge 03-20-10

As usual, I'm a little late on Jen's sketch challenges. We just finished The Thorn (www.thethorn.net) and will have a lot more free time. Free time means doing laundry before midnight, cooking dinner for my family, and creating, yea!!!!

I will upload photos and provide some details from The Thorn. It was an amazing experience!

Anyway, here's my take on the sketch. I made a card for Jay's birthday from Kendall. I wanted to do a masculine card (which is never easy for me) and had some fun using stamps I'd never inked before. I love going through my existing stash to find stamps to use. Don't get me wrong, I love getting new supplies, but I think I tend to be even more creative when I go through "old" supplies and either re-use them, or use them for the first time. This is especially true with stamp sets. I'll buy a set because I love one or two stamps in it and the others don't get any love. I often think about hosting a challenge on this blog (and include some blog candy) where everyone takes a pledge to not buy any new supplies for a set period of time and only use what you have. It would be fun to see what we can all come up with out of our existing stashes.....sounds intriguing.

Anyway, enjoy!
