VSN Anyone?

Last night my "Sweetheart" friends and I got together on our chat thread and decided to play along with VSN! We all came together when Joni - aka jstarbright - was one of the coordinators for the very first VSN I ever got involved with! I don't seem to have the time (or energy if I'm being honest) to do VSN every single time anymore and I did fall asleep last night after only completing two challenges, however I was wide awake this morning and I did three more.

Now to be totally honest... some of these images I had stamped, I just needed to do something with them... hope you like what I came up with!

One of the challenges was to use something new within the past two months, well this guy is my newest set! I actually designed this card for a stamp camp that I did, so I already had Mr. Deer and the saying stamped, I just had to finish him up and putting him together.

Another one was What's your obsession? Well my family would say stamping, but when it gets to this time of year, my thoughts go to gardening. I already have four hydrangea bushes and I just ordered four more - does that count as an obsession? This is another image I had pre-stamped and designed for my stamp camp, so I just had to finish it up and assemble it.
I've been wanting to do an acetate card for quite a while, and I finally talked Chris - aka ScrappyPappy - into letting me hang onto this set for her (Y'know I *almost* feel guilty for it too) But Chris is sweet and honest and she had to admit that he sees more ink when I have him at my house than he does when he's at her house ;~) And you know those cowboys, they gotta see action!

A long lost love, this is one of the very first sets I ever bought, it's timeless and there isn't anything you can't do with it! So why do I leave it on the shelf and rarely pull it out anymore? I've actually had the trees stamped for a while, my friend and co-worker Sandy brought a photo into me of a card similar to this (so this is basically a case) and I fell in love with it, the whole thing goes together quickly and with the glitter on the trees it just seems to be enough - so no other embellishments helps in the simple, elegant, quickness of the whole thing.
Ahhhh.... Inchies .... I never really got into the whole "inchie" craze, but one of the original sweethearts Denise - aka resqbarbie - hosted a challenge to use them, so in sweetheart spirit I had to play along, this is another quickie ;~)

I hope you likey!!!
