Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope everyone had a great weekend. For me, I finally got a haircut, Mallory came back from Spring Break on the beach, and she headed back to school yesterday. My house is back to normal and quiet!

I have a couple of announcements today. The first, Rubbernecker Stamp Company is having a March Madness Sale. There are stamps from the Rubbernecker and Stamp Oasis collections on sale for $2.95 or less.

Now for the second announcement. Today is the first challenge in the Rubbernecker Blog Challenges. Every Monday, Jeanne will be posting a new color challenge on her Blog, Inky Paws. Everyone is welcome to play along with us! However, if you make a card using any image from Rubbernecker Stamp Company and post a link back to the Challenge post on Inky Paws, you will be entered into a monthly drawing for a $25.00 Gift Certificate redeemable at Rubbernecker Stamp Company. The drawing will be held on the last Wednesday of each month and the winner will be announced on our blogs as well as the Rubbernecker Home Page.

We also have these nifty Rubbernecker Challenge Blogger buttons available for your blogs.

Just right click, save, and add it to your sidebar!!!


Onto the first Rubbernecker Blog Challenge – RBC01. Today’s colors are turquoise, green and brown. You’ll notice that the colors are not specified – use any color of turquoise, green or brown you wish!

There are a number of Rubbernecker Design Team members posting samples today:

• Jeanne at Inky Paws

• Candy at Candy’s Land

• Broni at Splashes of Color

• Kittie at Kittie Kraft

• Shelly at Stamp with Shelly

Here’s my sample for today’s challenge.


The image was stamped on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White with Adirondack Pitch Black, and then colored with Copic Markers. The underwater bubbles and the dots/trim on the bathing suit and bow were highlighted with an Inkssentials White Opaque Pen. For added texture, I added three drops of Ranger Glossy Accents over the bubbles. The image was cut out and matted on a piece of Tawny cardstock. The background paper was sewn to a panel of the tawny cardstock.
