Finally! Spilling the secret!

I am TERRIBLE AT WAITING! Without further torture, here's my exciting news:



Luckily, you don't need a license to be a DD in this game :)

Today is our first challenge of the term!  I'm SO EXCITED to be joining this talented team - I mean, really, these are my PEEPS! Drunken Stampers has weekly challenges, and there are 2 teams to bring you inspiration. This term will be challenges based on movies:

 it will be an EITHER-OR-BOTH type of challenge. You can EITHER use the movie in the title as inspiration OR use the suggested theme or item. You may want to even kick it up a notch and use BOTH! We can’t wait to see your creativity with these challenges!


Furry creatures, hmmm? I still have a whole bunch of Paper Smooches stamps waiting to be inked up, so I decided to go with one of those - and I got all techniquey and even stamped my own background paper (pats self on back).


Supplies: all stamps from Paper Smooches; Palette Noir ink; Versamark & white EP; Vintage Photo & Barn Door distress inks; 1/2" square punch for notching banner ends; scrap paper for paper-piecing the pup & his hat; polka-dot kraft paper from stash; standard small oval Nesties

I know you've got furry creatures in your crafty stash - so go play! Our "Groundhog Day" challenge (#113) linky will be open until next Friday night, February 8th. Don't forget to go see what the Midnight Margarita team has created, and leave them some love at their blogs too!
and Donna's playing this week too!
*happy flapping*
I'd better stock up on limes....after all, now I'm COMMITTED to having a wee tipple. It's my JOB. 
xoxo,
Jessi
