Out of A Hat - squeaking in....

A REALLY quick card because as usual I left it till the last minute - I'm really not that good with weekly challenges!!

Current Challenge at Out of a Hat is 'Most Useful Stamp'. Well it's not very exciting but I could really only choose this tiny text stamp from My Mind's Eye. It sits permanently on the corner of my desk on its own acrylic block, is used all the time (there is a laziness factor in here I do admit) and seems fairly indestructible. Being acrylic it is also useful for taking off the block, squishing up and random stamping - technical ain't I? I have no idea what it says or what language it is supposed to be, Elvish for all I know.

Funny enough the second most useful stamp is the little swirl that came in the same set and lives by its side. Who knew, I now realise I only had to buy one stamp set after all!! Could have saved myself a fortune.

Anyhow here's a little project using it as a background stamp. Not that inspiring but it was quick!!

The main image is from a Wendy Vecchi set and while getting it out I found a completely uninked Studio 490 set that I bought in the sales. Perhaps a challenge to get out your least (or try NEVER) used stamps would be more useful - but which one would I choose??

(YAY!! Blogger picture browser is back!! Just a note in case you have been struggling with HTML like me, it's time to try again)

I heard the blogger picture thing was something to do with Internet Exploder and if you used another browser everything was peachy.

That is funny that all you ever needed in life was one stamp set... who knew? You'd better keep buying stamp sets just to see if that holds true though. I find it an interesting challenge. I have no idea what I'd pick if I were doing the challenge. The only thing that comes to mind is a tiny font word stamp that says "princess." I stamp it on the back of almost every card and then sign Judy under it.

Beautiful creations on your page. As usual! ;)

I have a tip for you. Because I had the same pproblem as you with photosharing. Update your browser to "Google Chrome". Everything in Blogger works perfect with it including photos etc. "Igoogle" - the Google most people use - is going to dissapear later this year.

I hope I explained this good in english...

Have a wonderful and creative week!

Hugs Sussie!
