It's VSN Baby and All About the Love!!

It's VSN Weekend! I love it! If you haven't played the challenges in the VSN FORUM there is still time! The challenges need to be uploaded by 10 PM tonight- so that's almost 12 hours of play time! Also several fabulous companies have donated prizes so the more challenges you play the more chances you have to win!
My first card is for The Love of Chocolate Challenge (FEB09VSNB). You were to choose your favorite kind of chocolate and use the color challenge for that flavor. I chose Dark Chocolate and the colors are Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral and Apricot Appeal.

Stamps: Unity KOM Endings & Beginnings, Swooshie Twist
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal
Ink: Brown Stazon Cameo Coral apricot Appeal
Accessories: Dew Drops, Chocolate Ribbon

My next card is for the VSN Challenge One True Love FEB09VSNE to make a Monochromatic Card. I am still surprised I found a Prima flower and Button in matching shades but it worked out!

Stamps: Unity Shine On
Paper: PTI Lavender Moon Plum Pudding and Grid Lines DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Plum Pudding
Accessories: Nestabilities, Plum Pudding Ribbon, Black Gelly Roll Embossing Pen, Stickles, Dimensionals, White Gel Pen

My next card is the VSN Challenge is for the Long Lost Love Challenge FEB09VSNK. For this challenge you had to use a stamp set that you "had to have" used then put on the shelf never to see ink again. I chose the Stampin' Up Set Roses in Winter. I loved it, had to have it but I only used it a couple times and that was a long time ago. So it was perfect for this challenge.

Stamps: SU Roses in winter
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Bella Rose DSP
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Dimensionals, Double Rectangle Punch, RHR Ribbon, Basic Grey File (for distressing)

My next card is for the VSN Challenge Celebrity Crush FEB09VSNM. The challenge is to make a card for your Celebrity Crush. I LOVE Kenny Chesney and since he loves the beach, sand, and the water I made my nautical card for him.

Stamps: Unity Beach Days & Sun Rays
Paper: Kraft, Baja Breeze, Murfield DSP
Ink: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Baja Breeze Ribbon, Nestabilities, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals

The last card that I am showing you today is for the VSN Challenge Love Starts with an L FEB09VSNN. You were to only use things on your card that start with L. Wow- this one was hard. So I used LOTS of Lavender, Love is Toxic Stamp set and my Labels Nestabilities. Phew!

Stamps: Unity: Love is Toxic
Paper: PTI Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding, Grid Lines DSP
Ink: PTI Plum Pudding
Accessories, Nestabilites, Lavender Moon Ribbon, Stickles, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to play the VSN challenges! I will have more to show you tomorrow!
