A Stinky Supply Challenge!

Good morning everyone. It is Monday which means it is time for another challenge here on CCEE Stampers. This week our challenge was a supply challenge with Tosh supplying the items we needed to create our cards.

Tosh sent each of us the following supplies:

  • Skunk images

  • Floral designer paper

  • Black scallop ribbon

  • Packet sentiment stamps

  • Black Flourish (optional)
Now there is an interesting story behind our challenge this week. Tosh hates monkey images but her friend Laurie taunts her regularly, even to go as far as asking her to hold a sock monkey at CHA so she could take her pictures. THE NERVE!!
Well now is the time for Tosh to get her own back cause Laurie hates skunks as much as Tosh hates monkeys. Laurie's husband even propped a dead one by a cattle gate to surprise her when she had to check on the calves. (yikes!)

So Tosh asked us all to make a skunk card and send it to Laurie .... bwahahahahahahahahaha!

We had to use the skunk image, the designer paper, the black scallop ribbon and one of the sentiments from the packet of sentiment stamps to create our cards.

Ok now it is your turn to play .... so if you have any skunk images .... or even monkeys seeing Tosh doesn't like monkeys *wink* (now I am gonna get in trouble for that one hehe), use them to create your card today. Don't forget to come back here and leave a comment including a link to your card so that we can check it out. If you are uploading your card to SCS don't forget to use the keyword CCEEC.

Now it is time to see what we all created this week .... sorry Laurie but it wasn't our fault *wink*

I am SOOOO shocked, that Tosh has dragged you fine ladies down with her!! It's not often that I'm speechless.... :-)

You ladies really cracked me up!! And although I would NEVER admit this to Tosh, you SOOOO brightened my whole week...and gave me such a laugh (my sides still hurt from laughing so hard)!!! I really don't know what to say.... :-)

I will really have to put my thinking cap on, to see how I can "properly" say thank you!! Teeheheheee!

Okay I loved this challenge and just had to play. The skunks here in NC are orange and black instead of white and black. Did you know a skunk can spray up to 23ft. Ugh.. I learned alot by doing this challenge. Here is mine...

I loved all those skunks - so cute.
Loved Dawn's prop, Charlene's fancy flourishes and Tosh's lacing.
No skunk stamps but I made a totally offbeat skunk inspired card for you :D
