Challenge Monday 2.21.11

Hi Stamping Friends!
All week long I will be celebrating the second birthday of my favorite Stampin' Up! online community, STAMPIN' ADDICTS.  Stampin' Addicts is a public online site for Stampin' Up! fans around the world. There is no charge to join and it does not support any particular demo group.  The gallery currently has over 23,000 projects.  It is very user-friendly since it is organized by stamp set.  It's a fabulous place for amazing Stampin' Up! ideas and inspiration.  Come check us out!  To keep the party going all week long, we are having a Virtual Card Shower throughout the week.  Then on Friday through Sunday, we will be having a techniques blog hop birthday party.  You won't want to miss it!!  SA blog hop are the best!!

Only three for today.  But it's three more to bring to Goodies cookies!  I wasn't in a very stampy mood this weekend.  I keep getting this weird sore throat thing.  Not sure if it allergies or something more.  There's just too much sickness around right now.  I really need spring to come!!

I hope you can stop back by tomorrow for my ColourQ creation.  And yes!!  It will be a birthday card!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
