Under the wire??!!

This post has been edited - Scroll on down for the rest!

EEEKKK!!! I think I'm getting in just under the wire! Hopefully the OBP Earth Day contest ends at 11:59pm PST. Here's the last challenge I played along with. It was to stamp something on plastic.

I have to run, but will post the deets tomorrow!!!

How about some of those details?? Let me start off by telling you about my evening. After work I took my ring to the jeweler to get a prong fixed, then off to stamp club. On my way to stamp club I got a text from a friend asking me if I wanted to come to the sports bar and watch the Pittsburgh Penguins' play-off game. So, I stamped, watched the game, ran home to make some HG apple bread THEN decided to do ONE last OBP Earth Day Challenge. So, I showered, ran to the stamp room and got to work. You see, it was 11:15 and the contest ended at 11:59pm. However, I totally forgot that it was 11:59 PST. I ran like a fool and still had 3 hours to go!!!

So, I took a piece of Baja breeze paper and scored 1/2 inch all the way around the card. Then I cut out the insides to make a frame. I used red line tape around the edges of the frame and stuck on my piece of plastic. On top of that I added a 1 inch frame of Pumpkin Pie to cover my plastic and tape. Then strips of some super yummy dp I got at Archivers.

I would also like to note that I used chipboard! Not only did I buy chipboard, but I actually used it!!! Go me!!! I covered it with SU!'s "Hello Sunshine" dp and roughed the edges. I stamped Mr Gnome with Pallete Noir ink and hit him with the heat gun to set and colored with copics. Then I took a piece of neutral Pink Paislee paper and adhered it to the inside so you could see the gnome a little better. Add a bunch of Primas and there you have it!!! Woo Hooo! And I posted it at exactly 12am my time, (I was running!!!) as I hit send, I remembered that the challenge was PST. Sigh... At least I got to bed slightly earlier. Grin!

Nah. You made it by 3 hours!

The Earth Day Extravaganza started PDT and ends PDT, since Johanna is a California girl!

Oh. Your project looks great. I love what you did with it and will come back to read the details tomorrow!
