Mini Virtual Stamp Night Fun

 Last night was the Splitcoaststampers Mini Virtual Stamp Night (VSN). The VSN forum link is HERE.

Every hour a hostess posts a challenge related to the VSN theme. Each player must complete their challenge within 45 minutes (does not include the time to post the card). The theme for this VSN is Birds, Bees & Creepy Crawlies. I was fortunate to host the second challenge, which happens to be my first card here & the rest of the cards are in numerical & chronological order. (I missed the first challenge).

Here are my cards:
- MAR13VSNMINI2- My challenge to make a Spring card featuring flowers as the main image or focal point. Must use at least one flower. Dessert option to use something new.
- MAR13VSNMINI3- Use Hexagons.
- MAR13VSNMINI4- Pick a fun pun to use on your card with a bird or a bee.
- MAR13VSNMINI5- Make a sympathy card with one or more birds or butterflies.
- MAR13VSNMINI6- “flock” together: TWO birds, THREE different embellishments and FOUR colors from a posted picture of brightly colored birds.

 I really love VSN & feel so happy when I can play. Because of the 45 minute time rule, you don't have time to be fussy. [Rather I don't have time to be fussy!-LOL!!] A stamper can't spend 30 minutes rolling ideas around in her head & another 30 minutes picking embellishments. It forces me to CREATE and not THiNK about creating. Usually I get on a roll & the creative juices flow. I forget every other care in the world!

I hope you have a chance to check out this mini VSN; you still have time to play along. Join us for with the full VSN on March 1 & 2. Look HERE for more details!
