A Little Challenge Among Friends

 I recently had the company of my dear friend Jan (ScrappyJanDesigns), and while she was here I ask her to do up a card with this wonderful NEW stamp, Eerie Books by Sandra Hammer. Well, after she got home we got to talking, and I mentioned I actually had time to make a card with it too! (What a nice change to be able to sit down and play) I finally had a chance to try one of those stair step cards and just loved doing it. (If you would like a how-to on this let me know and I will post one)
So we have made this a friendly little challenge!! I cannot wait to see what Jan has come up with.  Also if you have time go back to her post with the M&Ms and make a guess on how many there are in the bottle!  And check out Jan's Wednesday post, another cute new Pixie Cottage stamp (Gone Fishin' by Di Carubia.
Okay on to my card....
The Eerie Book stamp is available for PREORDER HERE, with an expected shipping date being the 1st week of September.
So here is my card.

I have used Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey Eerie paper, two Magnolia stamps, a new punch by Martha Stewart I believe it is called Tombstones, and of course the book stamp is from The Pixie Cottage. Preorder it before Saturday and mention this Blog post and I will refund your shipping charges for this stamp! (good worldwide, but on the stamp only, other purchases will be billed for shipping)

I will be entering it in some challenges:
Stampin' B's  (Scene)
I Did It (Anything Goes)
Stamp Something Fairytale Something
Allsorts Challenge Paper Piecing
Alphabet Challenge Blog P is for punches
By The Cute and Girly Animals (see the kitty!)
Drunken Stampers Cats
Craft Your Days Away Favorites (currently my favorite fold)

I will have another cute little stair step card in the next coming days, along with a new storage option for your Copics!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
Jan lets see if you READ the whole post... I miss you!
