Virtual Stamping Weekend Recap

One of my all-time favorite Splitcoast events is Virtual Stamping Night (Weekend), and this time around was FANtastic!!! The theme was Come to the Cabaret, and there were SO many fun and interesting challenges. And I'm not just sayin' that because I had the privilege of being a challenge hostess again! (lol).

My challenge, entitled Striptease, was to include something on your card that can be removed. The cards created for this challenge were incredibly clever, let me tell ya! Among the entries was a get well card with a Band Aid on it, a Bon Voyage card that included a luggage tag, and an actual Tic Tac Toe game board with little Velcro'd game pieces. Other removable items included, fridge magnets, candy canes, Christmas ornaments, biggie clips, bookmarks, packets of soup mix, coffee....just amazing! Here are some of my VSN creations. The first two are my Striptease cards.
