Hello and happy first day of March! Spring is on it's way! Woo hoo!! I can't wait! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH we challenge you to make a card or project that does not have any WHITE PAPER on it!! That's right - no white paper allowed. It's a piece of cake. Here's my card:

 and the inside:

Yep, used my favorite sentiment stamp again, but this time I masked and stacked the words.(hard to do with a rubber stamp, thus the off kilter-ness) I also had to mask the page to extend the size so it would fit. A happy accident: when I stamped the word 'you' I had ink on the edge of the stamp and it smudged on the top left. So I doodled to make it look as if the corner of the paper had curled. 

Now it's your turn. Just create a card or project that does NOT include white paper and link it up at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see it. While there don't forget to check out what the other ladies created and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting!
