My 2014 Stamping Royalty Entries!

For the second year in a row, I challenged myself to enter Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking magazine’s “Stamping Royalty” contest. Although I didn’t get a happy e-mail again this year, I thought I’d share the cards that I entered in this year’s contest with you!
I was inspired by fellow blogger and crafter Ashley Harris to post my “Royalty-In-Waiting” cards. She’s encouraging those who didn’t get the happy e-mail to share their cards on her blog and on their personal blogs, so I’m going to link my cards up, and hope they inspire you!

These are more “clean and simple” than the cards I usually make, and I took that on as part of the contest challenge. I’ve come a long way since I first started making cards, and I’ll keep trying to win that elusive tiara!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you’ll have time to get some crafting done over the weekend!

Hugs,
