Last post for January FSOTM

Before we get to the last challenge for the month of January I would like to thank Heather for her great projects.......thanks so much(loved all of them, also loved your photo displays...well done)! 

Last, but not least.......for January! 

Challenge # 1: A play on words...  using two (or more) stamps, combine words (a word from each stamp) to create a new image.......e.g. Happy from one stamp, and Birthday from another (doesn't have to be those two words).

Note from Heather: I managed to work in 6 different word stamps for the sentiment, plus one on the inside as well as using the two image stamps from Thanks for Caring. For the butterfly, I stamped it on Very Vanilla, cut it out, spritzed it with my trusty mix of Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol, smooshed (technical term) it onto my Versamark pad and embossed it with clear embossing powder (repeated this for 2-3 layers). Really liked the way it turned out, especially with the bit of sparkle under the embossing. The sentiment panel is all shimmery too but somehow the camera doesn’t capture that too well.

Thanks again for the chance to do this Donna - had fun 'thinking outside the box' on some of the challenges! I still have some 'bits and pieces' of the goodies you provided to try and use on a card or two. Thanks for your generosity!
