LPSC99 - Our Final Challenge

Hello everyone!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  It's Monday again, and I am so very sad to say this is our last {Little Paper Shop} Monday challenge.  We announced last week that Julia had made the very hard decision to close the store at the end of the year.  Everything is currently 40% off (no coupon needed), so shop while there is still a good selection!  Stamps will NOT be restocked.

Our final challenge is to create a SQUARE card (LPSC99).  What a fun twist, and thanks for going easy on us so close to the holidays ladies!  :)  It's a regular challenge this week, and since it is our last, the prize is extra special!  Check out the LPS store blog today for details -- that's also where you link up to win!

Here is my card, featuring {Rose}:



We decided to do something extra this week, to showcase Julia's creativity and her beautiful stamp designs.  Julia, it has been an HONOR to design for you these last two years.  THANK YOU for making every day a joy and making me squeal with delight at every new stamp set.  The BEST of luck to you and your family in your other ventures.  You are beautiful, talented, and a fabulously dedicated Mommy.  And, I still want to have my boys' photos taken by you.  :)  I just gotta figure out the details...


So without further ado, here is my showcase.  These are my personal favorites from my past two years' Little Paper Shop creations {shown in no particular}:



A fun one from last year using {Christmas Tags}.  This card was published in the December 2010 issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine!



{Lucy Baking} up some birthday wishes!  She's adorable!



Halloween is my favorite holiday.  I was *IN LOVE* with this {Boo} set the instant I saw it.  Had a lot of fun creating this card.  My only regret is that I couldn't fit in the tombstone and spooky eyes as well.  Oh well, next time!



Another card featuring the {Rose} set.  What can I say?  This set is gorgeous, AND an absolute classic.  I love the various flower sizes, the font mixtures, the wording of the sentiments - all of it!  I constantly have ideas in my head for this set.  Believe me, it will still be seeing plenty of use!




Last but absolutely not least is this fun sentiment card featuring my {if-you-really-really-really-forced-me-to-choose-just-ONE-favorite-{Little Paper Shop}-set} favorite {Little Paper Shop} set, {A Dream}.  Normally I'm not a big fan of orange, but it *really* works here.


I hope you enjoyed this trip down LPS-Memory Lane -- I know I did.  Be sure to pick yourself up an early Christmas gift or a little stocking stuffer over at the Shop this week!  I hope to see lots of participation in our final challenge as well!!  


Have a great week everyone; I will see you back here tomorrow.  :)
