Kimmie's Challenge #3!!!



Welcome back..........your dreams are your ticket out!!! Welcome back!! Sorry, I've had the theme song from Welcome Back Kotter stuck in my head for a while now and I had to share!!

Well, I am back!! So sorry that I haven't posted over the weekend but it's been a rather busy one for me!! I worked all week, Friday I got done at 5pm and I had a workshop at 6:30pm!! In between work and the class I had to race home, eat, load up my car, take my daughter to babysit, get to the Superstore and set up the stations for 5 cards! Whew!! I didn't get home until after 10pm. Sunday we had to take our pool down for the winter........I hate to even say that!! But that took up most of our day and then we had to run Emmy to her volunteer hours at the hockey game in town this evening.

But the BEST part of the weekend was going to the Sarnia Scrapbook Show on Saturday!! WOOHOO!! I had to get up at the crack of dawn....well, 7am is early to me on a Saturday....and drive an hour and a half to Sarnia and I met my Mommy.....she is the bestest!!! We got there for 10 am when the doors opened and let me tell you....there were some crazy women there!! I mean, I know I'm a little obssessed and ummmm...shall we say passionate about papercrafting but golly, some of these gals were nuts, yellin' and hootin'!! Anyway, it was at the Holiday Inn and they had one of those giant banquet rooms PACKED with vendors who had paper, stamps, ink, punches, sb albums, stickers, stickles, ribbon...you name it!!! It was all so overwhelming!!

The very first booth we came to as we went in the room, was the best one there and it was the WHOLE reason I went.........it was the High Hopes Rubber Stamps booth!!! And none other than the owner Tina Russell, was there!!!! It was so awesome to finally meet her after corresponding only by email until now!! It was actually quite funny though, because she was waiting on a customer when we got there, so Mom and I sort of hung around behind and I saw Tina's daughter whispering to her friend and when we finally got up there she said, "You're one of our Design Divas, aren't you??"! Hahahaha!!! I felt like a total celebrity!!!

I must say it really was so cool to see the cards I designed displayed at the Show and to watch people comment on them! Tina told me that even a couple of ladies purchased some of the new stamps specifically because they saw them used on cards that I had created!! How amazing is that feeling???

Anyway, before I left, Tina handed me a WHOLE SHEET of soon to be released High Hopes Stamps!!!!! Aaaaahhhh!! No one else has them yet and they aren't even on the website yet!! Woohoo........am I a lucky girl??! Yes, ma'am!! I can't wait to get busy inkin' them up! Maybe I'll have some sneak peeks for you soon!!!

Okay, there were some fantastic entries for last week's colour challenge!! I'm really glad to see you having fun with all the challenges being posted lately on everyone's blogs! I don't know about you, but they keep me inspired and motivated!! The random winner for Challenge #2 is........Scrapping Donna!!!! She is fairly new to blogging, so if you haven't been over there yet, go pay her a little visit and leave some blogging love!!



This week's challenge is going to be a Theme Challenge!!! Last week a friend of mine hired me to make some Baby Shower Invitations and Party Favours. I've posted both designs that I showed to her and she couldn't decided which one she liked better, so I am making them both!! My challenge to you is to create a baby card! It can be an invitation, a welcome to baby, a congratulations card and it can be for a boy or a girl!! Whatever, just make sure it's baby-themed!!

Don't forget to link it up here in this posting when you upload it to your gallery or blog and if you post it on SCS, be sure to use the keywords KC3, so everyone can check them out!!

Lucky you...sounds like a fun weekend...nothing better than new RUBBER!

I love your challenges and now that I am home again, I will have my supplies on hand to play. (But I must say that a baby card will be tough...I don't think I own any baby stuff...off to look!)

This is the other Janine here. When your challenge went up didn't have anyone in mind and then the next day I heard about a new baby boy - grandson to a retired friend of mine. Here is the link http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/682546?cat=500&ppuser=132530
