Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #35: V is for Vellum

Edna looks a little blurry today.  Maybe she needs new glasses...or they could just need cleaning.  Well although that still could be true, she's actually sporting vellum today.  The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #35 is V is for Vellum!  Well after searching throughout a paper store (the one in my spare bedroom) I didn't find any vellum.  So I went to my local stamp store, Crackerbox Palace, and found a variety...thanks Vicky!  I should have just gone to you first!

I disassembled a tiny paper bag and used it to cut and score the green polka dot vellum.  I used a stamp I bought a long time ago.  It's Rocks from River City Rubber Works.  I had to have it being the rock hound I am.  The bag is filled with rocks...I had to strengthen the bottom of the bag!  These are only a few rocks in my ever-growing collection.  I have always collected rocks...everyone should collect some.  There is a great children's book called Everybody Needs a Rock.  It doesn't talk about collecting rocks, but about you finding your perfect rock.  Check it out!

Challenge #35 ends on Friday, June 4th, at 11:55 pm EDT
