Good Monday morning! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and feel rested and relaxed to start your week off. Of course, I do remember when I worked full-time and detested Monday mornings. Now I just loll around and enjoy the peace and quiet. The only thing is, today I must run errands. I’m expecting out of town visitors later in the week, and will be leaving for Akron on Thursday. Which reminds me, if you are going to Adventures in Stamping Show this coming weekend, stop by the Rubbernecker Booth and see us! Shelly and I will be there working along with Dave and Pat, the owners of Rubbernecker.


Today is another Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge. This week, the colors are red, pink and gray. You can find out more details and another sample by visiting Jeanne’s blog, Inky Paws. If you play along, and upload your card to your SCS Gallery, please use keyword RBC06. You can also find samples on Candy’s, Kittie’s and Shelly’s blogs today.


Before I show you my card, I have some Tawdry Treats for you. As a lead up to tomorrow’s Treasure Hunt at Rubbernecker, one lucky winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to be used at checkout when you place your order at Rubbernecker Stamp Company.

RNBC Gift Card

Along with the Rubbernecker Bucks, I’ve decided to throw in a little extra for you. The same winner will also receive one small stamp set ($10 value) of your choice listed on my Stampin’ UP! For Sale page.


All you have to do to win, is leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite book is and why. I just finished reading the Seventh in the Sisterhood Series by Fern Michaels’, Hocus Pocus. Over the weekend I started Fannie Flagg’s Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven. I’m always looking for something good to read! I’ll be picking the winner on Tuesday night and announce who that is on Wednesday morning.


Now, onto today’s RBC06 sample. The only thing I’m truly disappointed about, is that I could not get a decent picture with decent lighting of this card. The photo I ended up using, does not show the colors properly. I will be trying for another photo later.




The floral image was inked with Oregano, Shell Pink and Cranberry ink, misted with water and then stamped. The hummingbird was inked with Lake Mist and Slate, misted with water and stamped. The edges of all the paper were sponged with Slate and the sentiment was also stamped in the same color. The image panel and all the background papers were stitched to the layers behind them on my sewing machine.
