Challenge Cards with Friends!

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone's week is off to a great start! I'm officially on summer vacation, whoo! hoo! I haven't got in my stamp room yet, mainly because it was inundated with boxes of teacher junk, ugh! But I've been working on consolidating, purging, organizing, and I'm almost finished, schwooo! My school is moving to a new building next year, so we had to bring home EVERYTHING we owned. I can't believe the amount of stuff I've acquired after only 5 years of teaching, scary! Reminds me of paper-crafting! ha!

In the meantime, here are the remaining challenge cards my friends and I made at our last retreat. As I mentioned before, the challenges started around 11:30 pm. For these two challenges, we had about 22 minutes and 17 minutes, although sometimes we (me included!) went over by a few minutes! :)

First up, the moustache cards, and believe me, most of the girls were not thrilled with this challenge! I gave them a pre-stamped moustache image, a black card base, piece of Wild Wasabi, and green/white baker's twine. *Please forgive the poor quality iPhone pictures!*

Here's mine:







Next up, the button cards. Everyone received a Chocolate Chip card base and a "button card" cut out from the SU Sweet Stitches designer series paper.








I hope you enjoyed looking at our limited supplies challenge cards! I love how they all turn out so differently!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I love these challenge cards. so neat to see how others take an image and re-work it {who would have thought a moustache could be a bib!}

Oh, the infamous mustache trend... I still haven't made up my mind about this one. I'm not sure if I think it's fun or weird or both. I love the card that says, "Things I love about you" - haha!

LOL at the comment of how much stuff you've accumulated in your classroom and stamp room... I dread the day I'll be moving out of my apartment for that very reason...
