Blessed. . .

Her children arise and call her blessed. Psalm 31:28


CHACB Challenge #5: Pick a Stamp! Any Stamp!

Gloria Designs Challenge The current challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous is to use a stamp (at least one!) as the focal point of your project!

 You don't have to be a card maker to hoard stamps! With the popularity of pocket-style scrapbooking and the explosion of journaling stamps on the market, many scrapbookers have also become stamp hoarders. Plus, digital stamps are more popular than ever. I am sure that most of us have at least one stamp in our stash! You may "collect" wood mounted stamps, clear stamps, cling rubber, or even digital! Get one out, dust it off, and make it the STAR of your project! We want to see a stamp (sentiment, word art, image, etc.) as the focal point of your project! Feel free to use more than one stamp, but you must have AT LEAST ONE stamped item on your project.

 
One talented participant (selected from both April Challenges) will receive this fabby prize for their work donated by Hampton Art. Hampton Art, founded in 1980 in picturesque Long Island, NY, has been inspiring stampers, crafters and papercraft enthusiasts for over 20 years. They have a portfolio of brands including Hampton Art™, Studio G™, Diffusion, Ditto™ and Ki Memories®, acquired in 2012.

 The deadline for linking up is Sunday, April 20 at midnight PST.
