Clean the house, make a card?Clean the house, make a card?Clean the house, make a card?Clean the house, make a card?

No contest!
                                 Green and Pink and never seen ink!!!!!


 Today's  OLW number 49 is at Jennifer's blog. Pop over and check it out, so much fun and Jennifer has some brilliant cards for you to peruse, great inspiration:0)
OLW Rules for this challenge;
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.
2. Make a one-layer card using a never been inked stamp and the colours green and pink.
(there are more but these are the relevant ones)


 I found this a bit of a challenge because my new stamps itch to be inked so I had to look for sets with a small overlooked stamp waiting to be inked. There really weren't many! Hence the size of the card! I masked the tiny pig and stamped over with the background stars.
I hope you have a brilliant day, it's so chilly here today, I must address my messy house now, HUMPH :{

I used;
Spellbinders Nesties, Star5, largest die.
SU Very Punny............. eBay purchase!
Banana Frog Superstars ................Yay, on special ATM
Along with Versmark ink pads, Brilliance Aurora and 504 Lollipop

What is this "clean the house" that you speak of? Never! I'd rather hire it done...of course, if I retire at the end of this year, I may be learning ALL about "cleaning the house"!! OH NO!!!

Love that you made a shaped card..it's just a cute as can be!
