what's black and white and *???* all over?!

well, this card, for starters!

(stamps: penguin pants; glossy cardstock: ranger; patterned paper: oriental trading co; rub-ons: american crafts, basic grey; gems: heidi swapp; other: vintage lace, ribbon from michael's, foam tape, white signo pen)

another is the new caardvarks challenge!!! yes indeedy, it's called black + white + one ...and to participate you merely need to make a card that's black and white...and ONE other color! which other color, along with what shape, size, occasion, and entirely up to you!

for this challenge many of the design team (including myself) used our wonderful packs of penguin pants rubber stamps, which those fine folks were kind enough to send along a month or so ago. but one card each didn't realllllllly seem like enough to showcase these lovely products so this time we have a second special DT gallery that includes lots more items! some of these meet the challenge, some that go off in other directions, but ALL are well worth a look!

in the next couple of days i will feature the cards i made for the special gallery, including complete materials information and links to the specific stamp sets i used!

those of you who happened to tune in yesterday may notice that there is now a post missing. that's because, having prepared several in advance, i accidentally POSTED THE WRONG ONE! yepper, after a mere week's vacation from t'internet, i've apparently lost the ability to perform even simple tasks!!!

don't drink and blog,'s just not worth it!!! :)
