Surf's Up, Dude

It's Friday, yeah!  So what are you doing this weekend?  I hope you're going to join us at Stampin' for the Weekend because this week I picked the challenge theme.  We've being sponsored by LOTV and that means a nice prize for someone.  This challenge is easy peasy, it's "Use It Up".  We'd like you to use some stuff that's been sitting in your stash since last year.  Technically you can use stuff you got for Christmas but why not move some of the stuff that's starting to get dusty.  You're welcome to use stamps or digis of any brand you'd like.

This year I'm going to try to make more masculine cards.  I'm thinking that at least one a month would be a good commitment and easy enough to keep and maybe I'll get more done.  I'll keep you posted.

Here's the deets:
stamp - digi from Teddy Bo
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up cs and dp
miscellaneous - copics, lacey square nestie; twine; charm

Here's the challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend - Use It Up
Moving Along with the Times #130 - Spots and Stripes
Teddy Bo #20 - Anything Goes
Color Throwdown #174 - Soft Sky, River Rock, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede
Simon Says - Spots and/or Stripes

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again and that you'll find the time to play along with us at Stampin' for the Weekend.
