Stamp Winners and a Peaceful Card

When organizing today, I worked on clearing out the bin I call my "art projects to work on." It contains all kinds of bits and bobs and kits that I started but never completed.  I came across a baggie of color copies I had made of some small collages. I'm sure my plan was to make some cards. So I did - I made nine quick cards simply by trimming the image, matting it and then putting it on a card base. I assume I'm not the only one with an "unfinished projects" bin, am I?
*************************************************************************
And, I've drawn the stamp winners from Wednesday's give-away:
Cheri will be receiving the "happy stamps."
Melissa will be receiving the farm labels. 
I have your addresses from Ginger's mail art exchange, but email if it's changed since then. 
Congratulations girls! And everyone interested in stamps, please check back on the first of each month when I'll be giving away more new or gently used stamps.

I have unfinished layouts. I decided today that the reason they are unfinished is that I probably am unhappy with them so should either take them apart or throw them away. I think it will probably be the latter. Lovely vibrant colours on your card.

Beautiful card and yay you for knocking out that unfinished project, felt great didn't it?! Congrats to Cheri and Melissa :)

Amy said...

It is rare for me to have an unfinished layout ... I have plenty of unfinished projects that are not scrapping related though!

Like Amy....I rarely have an unfinished layout.....but I certainly have unfinished projects.....and many layouts waiting to be started!!

Fiona said...

Lovely cards and yes I think I do have one or two unfinished projects.

I think that I am the queen of unfinished projects. I have quite a few of them sitting around...

Congrats to the winners! :)

I have been keeping up with your posts Rinda and I was shocked and flabbergasted as to how many stamps you have! I wish I lived closer to you so I could borrow a few :) I have one large drawer in the arm-moire for stamps and do not need anymore! As for unfinished projects... yes! I have some of those too :) Hope your Sunday is going wonderfully :)

I'm sure that I could give Carrie a good run for the title "Queen of Unfinished Projects"... so much so that one of my best girls gave me a Christmas ornament with that title! I also have tons of unfinished layouts in albums... waiting for finishing touches and/or journaling.

And can I just say YAHOOOOO!!!! I get the happy stamps... doing the happy dance...

i am much better about starting projects than i am finishing them! i keep waiting for that big block of time right over the horizon - ha! your card looks great.

Irene said...

Oh yes, I do have a few unfinished projects. This year i am determined to stay focused and finish a few of these projects. Your card is very nice. When I took a closer look i noticed the extra touches you added like the three stars, the feather and what look like those thin skeleton leaves.

Unfinished projects? Me? {sigh. yes...}

Congrats to the winners. It's fun to know you'll be giving away more stamps in the future. :o)

Yippee - totally makes my day to know I'll get to enjoy those great farm label stamps! Thanks so much Rinda!

I don't have an unfinished project BIN, I have a SHELF! I like to think of them as WORKS-IN-PROGRESS. :>)
