Going Grey with Scra-Creations Challenge: Your favorite Technique!

Happy Tuesday! Wow, just when I think I have things in order, the days creep up on me. I can't believe it already November! Yikes....that means winter is soon approaching, and Christmas isn't far behind. Weird how the older you get the faster time seems to go!

Last weeks cards were FAB-U-LOUS!!!! I swear, I am in awww at all the talent out there. So, we have another wonderful challenge for you this week, and a brand new fabulous sponsor as well. This weeks challenge is: pick your favorite technique... when I sat to make my project this week, I actually thought "what was I thinking with this theme", honestly, I don't consider myself a "stamper". I am more of a papercrafter that loves to color. Who was I kidding, the only ink pad I use is a memento black, never mind a technique, but when I started to look around, I decided a technique can be anything really! I have been dying to try this little 3x3 notecard box I saw on splittcoast a while back and decided it was a technique to try:) It was super easy, and rather quick to make, and I am thinking it would make perfect teacher gifts for the holidays (if I can find the time). God knows I have enough paper to make a ton of sets. I am also going to mention that I use SU stamps...wahoo...they have been tucked in my drawer and I didn't think they would ever see the light of day :) Hey Pia...I am using my stuff!

As I mentioned, we have a brand new sponsor this week, who also happens to be a friend and, in my opinion, one of the most talented people in the business. This weeks sponsor is Through the Carftroom Door ,owned and operated by Suzzane Dean and Marti Willis! In case you are unfamiliar with through The craftroom door, it is a fairly new magazine that offers, templates, tutorials, copic tips and tricks and so much more......The winner of this weeks challenge will win a 1 year subscription... Thank you so much Suzanne:)

Like I said, last weeks cards were all amazing, but we have to pick the Top 3, and the are....
