It’s VSN time again…

I hosted a challenge last night for the January VSN. Well, sort of – I actually was in the ER during my challenge, with a severe attack of kidney stones. Which was way less fun than VSN, believe me. Anyway, my challenge was a “follow the list” kind of challenge. I’m still feeling pretty bad, so please forgive this short post.

 Here is a link to my challenge thread – Packing the Purse. Check it out, and play along if you’d like! I’ve always been a huge fan of this kind of challenge. They sound easy, in theory, but really they aren’t. And when you throw in a time limit (45 minutes) – whew! ANd if you want more fun, here is a link to the master challenge thread for this month’s VSN. The theme was “Girl’s Night Out”, and there were tons of fun challenges!

Since I was otherwise occupied, someone else had to stand in for me. Big thanks to Frances, aka StampOwl, to standing in!! I really appreciate it 🙂

Ok, I’m off to the couch. 10 minutes of typing is about all I can handle this afternoon. Good thing there is football on to keep me occupied – go Pats!

 the details on the card:

Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks, French Script, Lizzie Anne Designs L’Amour
Paper: Kraft, True Thyme, Cranberry Crisp, Basic Grey dp
Ink: Craft – Whisper White, Classic – Cranberry Crsip, True Thyme
Accessories: SU Markers – Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke; oval punches,
