I told you I had a lot of time to stamp this weekend!  I also had time to stamp my ColourQ card for tomorrow, find some sketches for my Stampin' Celebration challenge project for Thursday, play around a little in My Digital Studio, and get inspiration for the upcoming Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop happening this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!!  Whew!  I'd say that was a stamp happy weekend for sure!

I hope you are inspired to play in a few challenges this week.  I know the challenge blogs would love some new players!!

Be sure to stop back by tomorrow and see what I created for the "spicy" ColourQ color challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
