SOS! Challenge #4

So did anyone cave in and buy any of the new release from LOTV?! Goshh, I was up til after 1 and I found it SO hard to resist. I kept going back to the website all of the time.. but I held out. I was a good girl. I didn't let myself down. *Phew* Noooo moreeee imaaaagessss!! Okay, maybe just the new SOG ones.. ;).. I digress.. this isn't what you're here for..

It's time for my second post as Guest Designer over at SOS! Challenge Blog.

This week we've got a bit of a recipe going on.. we want to see:

.. any or all of these: Stickles, Ocean/Nautical theme, sailboats, seam binding ribbon, or anything from companies that start with S- Stampavie, Stampin' Up, SEI, Sassafrass etc.

As for 'S's: I used SU! cardstock, stamps, punches, ribbon, ink, markers; Sassafras - Indie Girl patterned paper; Spellbinders nestabilities; Stempelglede stamps - Grunge collection; Set of cards and tags. I think that just about covers it. I had real fun with this challenge - it made me route through my stash for all of those S things.

These little cuties are 3" square and are the perfect size for that little 'notelet' to pop into people's packages and stuff. Really handy. I created the mini tags just for something extra!

I would like to enter this set of cards into these challenges:
× Kaboodle Doodles - Floral Showcase
× Make it Monday - Anything Goes
× Come and Get It Challenges - Colour ~Brown, Green and Blue~ [I hope my Kraft counts as Brown?!]

Be sure to head on over to the SOS! Challenge blog to see the amazing creations the other ladies have come up with! It was a blast browsing through everyones creations last week and I can't wait to see what you all come up with this time round! xo Lou.
