An Exciting New Blog and I'm a Stamping Gal

Unfroggetable card, using Stampin Up
If you have ever visited Stampin' When I Can, you know that Allison is an amazing blogger and has provided terrific links lists featuring Tutorial, Blog Candy, Sketch, Challenge and Favorite posts that she comes across.

Recently Allison posted a request for help in updating all her link lists. Somehow she had been doing this single handedly, and she has over 1000 blogs in her reader. Several bloggers, including myself, volunteered to help.

She has created a new blog, Stamping Links to Love, and moved her link lists there. Allison has given us volunteers a name. We are known as the Stamping Gals and it is our job to help her go through all her posts and update the link lists when we come across something noteworthy.

If you want a quick and easy place to find great blog posts about stamping, scrapping and paper crafts, be sure to come by Stamping Links to Love.

Since the new site is just a series of feeds, subscribing the blog itself will not work. Instead you need to subscribe to the individual feeds.

I made this card for the Color Inspiration Challenge at Paper Askew Studio. They have a great inspiration piece to work from and this was a fun card to put together.

I used a variety of papers that are all non Stampin' Up, so I won't list them. The stamp sets are Unfrogettable and Itty Bitty Backgrounds, both from Stampin' Up. I made use of the word window punch, 1/2 and 1/4 inch circle punches, a well as an eyelet and organdy ribbon. I colored the mushroom with water color pencils and added googlie eyes to the frog.
