New Year Challenges

One of the things I want to do this year is to participate in more challenges - really get my mojo flowing.  Allison had a brilliant idea of making a challenge out of old stamp sets that have been sitting around collecting dust - which is a great idea!  The way I figure it is I've spent money on the stamps - they should be used.

The one I decided to use was Hats Off - a Stampin' Up set.  I love this little set - but have very rarely used it - not really sure if I have used it!  I used Mojo Sketch Mojo119 for the layout and I must say I love how this card turned out.  I'm not one for using black and white tones for my cards but Tracy's card did inspire me to use this color scheme.  The color of the hat and her hair sets it off quite nicely.

And I've also used a fabric flower that I've had forever - and same thing - haven't really used these much - but it fit so nicely in with this layout.

It's great to have people out there to help spark your mojo!

I've also finished Tracy's Christmas challenge - but I'll get those posted in the week!

For another bit of inspiration - you really need to check out Merlie's blog....she's done some amazing organizing of her craft space - if that doesn't give you inspiration - I'm not sure what will!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Merlie said...

Very nice, Dianne! Love how you used the tag for your image. I'm hoping to do that challenge too...I think we all have lots of stamps collecting dust.
