Simon Says and A.R.T. Challenge #3 - Anything Goes!

I had hoped to post on Tuesday, but life got away from me. The last game of the Stanley Cup Finals was pretty epic, and, well, I spent time recovering from it. Now it's going to be draft day and then free agent frenzy time. But before that, tomorrow I have two graduations to attend and then it's a long weekend.

This card uses one of my favourite retired SU stamp sets - Morning Cup. I was lucky to have my turn in my stamp club in May, so I was able to use my hostess credits to get retired sets. I think I got everything off the retired list that I could possibly want. One of the reasons I never became a demo (aside from not wanting to compete with friends who are already demos, wanting to continue to support those individuals, and generally not enjoying sales!) is because I couldn't see myself having to stop using stamps I loved just because they're retired.

As stated in the post title, I am entering this card in two Anything Goes challenges. 

For those who don't know about the A.R.T. card challenge blog, ART stands for A Random Thursday. Each week they offer a different challenge. You can find the details on their blog. 

Also.. don't forget, as of Monday, Google Reader will be no more! I am still deciding if I should switch to Bloglovin or Feedly. Which do you prefer? Why? Let me know in the comments!

Have a great weekend!

Card Details: - All products SU!

Great card! Love the image and the great color combo! I did the demo thing for a few years when I was first learning and I got a lot of my starting supplies and discount that way. I dropped eventually, but I NEVER got rid of my stamps as I loved them to buy them, so I use them all the time!
