VSN Day #2 February 21st with SplitCoast Stampers

My second day on the VSN with Darci. We had a great day and enterred 4 more challenges. I found it to be very challenging to view the challenge and the trick for me was to VERY QUICKLY decide on my paper(s) and stamps. Put the basics of the card together as fast as I could to allow as much time in the 45 minutes to add bling. Lots of fun. I will definitely do it again. My only advice to others....if you have large stores of bling, ribbon, paper and other embellishments - I would not go too crazy with the shopping list. Some of the challenges will require you to have followed the shopping list but many work out just fine with stuff that you have piled in your craft room. Also...there are so many challenges in a VSN, if you miss one due to supplies you will still have more than enough challenges to participate in. All of these cards are shown in my gallery on Splitcoast under labs3vt. All the card details are included in the gallery entries.

FEB09VSNM - Celebrity Crush: Make a Card that represents your celebrity crush. I had to go with it - with the stamps that I had packed up and brought to Darci's house. Not the most creative card for a Celebrity but I am a big fan of Charles Schulz and the Peanuts.

FEB09VSNL - Wee Bit 'O Love: Make a Card with Inchies. Pieces of paper 1"x1".

FEB09VSNK - Long Lost Love: Make a Card with an old favorite stamp or something you have hoarded and not used in a long time. My Long Lost Love was my Hodgepodge Hardware.

FEB09VSNJ - See Thru: Make a Card that is see thru or with see thru materials.
