It's Not All Black and White

Thinking Out of the Box

I'm ususally pretty literal with my stamps, so I really had to put my thinking cap on when Tricia (Lizzie) announced this month's design team challenge: to use a stamp other than for its intended purpose.

I came up with using this circle sentiment and making it work double duty as some sunshine as well. I think it turned out pretty cute with a colorful kite and a blue sky background. All three stamps, the third being "you made my day", come from the newly revealed May Monthly Mix, Dream Big. The set will start to ship on out May 1, so you still have plenty of time to get it at the discounted club rate. I know the girls are working on the website this weekend, so you may need to stop back, if you can't get past the homepage. Trust me, this set is well worth it!

Now, don't miss what creative ideas all the other Lizzie Anne girls have thought up for this challenge as well. Links to all the blogs are listed over there ------> on the right under Lizzie Anne Designs.
