You're Simply The Best

I really don't have a lot of stamps.  I gave away hundreds of stamps years ago when I got more involved in scrapbooking.  Now, the trends are turning back to stamps, and there are so many AMAZING stamp companies out there with the most darling stamps.  I wish I could own them ALL, but I cannot.  I have to get by with what I can afford to buy (which is limited right now), and what I have won or been given on-line.  I am very blessed, and appreciate what I have.  I was able to enter a few really fun challenges by utilizing the stamps I do have in my collection.  I would be SO excited to win any of these prizes.
I am entering the challenge (again) at Creative Card Crew with this card.  I made it for my husband, cuz he is the best to all of us.  It made me think of that song by Tina Turner, "You're Simply The Best".  Here is a link to their challenge: - Creative Card Crew/Song Inspired Challenge #12
"Youre Simply The Best" - by Tina Turner

I used Just Rite Stamp - You're the Best from the Friendship Nested Sentiments Collection - Mark's Finest Papers/Speedy Frox and Friends - Black and White Challenge (with another color) - My patterned papers are black and white, and of course, I've added red to make it pop.  I just LOVE this company.  They have the cutest stamp sets, and I would SO love to win.

Also, MME Cowabunga, Oh So Very Cool Die-Cut
Authentique and Melissa Frances patterned papers
Cosmo Cricket Ribbon
Vintage Buttons, jute
Ranger Ink
Machine Stitching

That's about it.

Thanks for stopp by to take a peek.  Have a blessed day.
