Guest Designing ~ I'm absolutely ......... CRAZY!

**Today is the last day to enter my birthday giveaway!**
You can find the details here

Hi crafty friends!

I'm delighted to have been invited by the talented Maryann
 to be the guest designer for Crazy 4 Challenges for the month of April!
I DO love challenges ~ they really give you a great springboard
for coming up with card ideas, 
including ones you might not have thought of before :)

The first challenge:  Use your dies as a stencil!
I jumped right in with one of my favorite Altenew stamps ~
I started by using the lion die and my Tim Holtz inks and 
did a random stamping around the panel.  

 Next, I stamped out another lion and ran it through the Cuttlebug
as well as the sentiment from the set.

If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project 
and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C429. 
Thanks for stopping by today!
