{LOVE} a team challenge...

Hello, friends. Happy Sunday!

Today I am sharing a card that came about as a result of a fortnightly challenge that runs on my team Facebook page. We take turns setting different challenges - it might be a sketch, a colour combination, an image inspiration or a general theme - and everyone can join in and post a project to the challenge album if they want to. We've found it's a great way to get out of the stampin' rut that we can all fall into from time to time and it's always fun to see the different directions that others take their challenges in.

This fortnight's themed challenge was LUUUURVE...!

It was set almost two weeks ago, perfectly in time for Valentine's Day, but since the challenge period was a whole fortnight, and there's no reason to *ahem* rush these things, I just got done this afternoon.

I do love it though, and considering that we don't really 'do' Valentine's Day at my house, I figure I'm not late for that, I'm just early for giving my husband a 'Love You' card next week. On Tuesday. Just because...

I am a huge fan of the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. Not only does it work perfectly with the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Project Kit, as it was designed to, it a sweet set of images for all kinds of purposes.

See....?!

Here are a couple of sweet note cards that shared on my Instagram profile last week that also use this set...

What are YOU loving the best out of the Occasions Catalogue? My favourites tend to change daily, and are largely influenced by the amazing amount of inspiration in the stampin' blogosphere. Stampers are SO flippin' clever!

Speaking of the blogosphere, I posed a little question on my Facebook page during the week. I'm interested in the number of peeps who still read blogs, and those who tend to favour more visual mediums such as Instagram and Pinterest that have popped up more recently.

What's your preference for seeking out stampin' inspiration these days? Join the conversation.

Thanks for popping in!
