Journey - Loves Rubberstamps Weekly Challenge!

Hello Friends!

Happy Tuesday to you!  I am back with another challenge for  Loves Rubberstamps!
This week it is everyone's favorite...... Anything Goes!

Our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe

This weekend, I sat down to make my card for today's challenge.  I had actually been planning something else all along, but switched gears at the last second.  It has been crazy busy here as we are prepping for a garage sale this coming weekend.  We are cleaning out much of our house and getting rid of it so we have less to move next year.  Boy, it this project ever a chore.  Wow, I am not sure what I got myself into.  

Anyhow, you are here to see the project right?  Well, I hope you enjoy it.  Sunday morning my brother and his family were baptized.  I am so proud of them for making a decision to walk with the Lord.  So this is the reason my card changed at the last minute.   I used lots of distress inks, background stamps to make this fun little card.  I think distress inks is one of my favorite techniques.  I just go to another world and have fun!  I hope you en joy it!

Supplies Used:

Graphic 45 - Houndstooth background
Inkadinkado  background stamp
Stamper's Anonymous stamp
Ranger Archival Black & Coffee Ink
