CAS Stampotique Challenge

Before retiring from the Design Team at Stampotique (I'm still designing stamp images, just not posting on my blog each week as time isn't so readily available at the moment), ...anyway wher was I ...ah yes, before leaving I had completed a few of the challenges in advance, this being one of them, Joanne Wardle's CAS challenge at Stampotique.

Now- the 'it just shows how strange life can be' bit... it may look rather similar to Joanne Wardles if you've seen the challenge main post today, but it was one of those spooky moments where we uploaded to the file at Stampotique at the same time with almost an identical card!!! Even more spooky was that instead on the image stamp I finally decided on, I did actually ponder over using the the Joanne chose!!! ( twilight zone music...doo-de-doo-doo doo-de-doo-doo).
(Happened also again on Saturday only this time with a CAS for LIM with Nellie...its really freaky when it does....)

Here's mine for the Stampotique challenge...



Neither of us had seen each others work. And we also live 350 miles away from each other so neither of us sneaked round for a quick peek through the window lol. What I'm trying to say is SOMETIMES these things happen when designs are so simple. There are only so many postions stamps can sit on a CAS card and we just happened to choose the same combination. We were so taken aback when it happened, it was very funny.

(hey...come over here a min... *whispers*... between you and I my card was uploaded first by about 20 minutes rofl, so I leave you to make your own judgement

................HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!

Is that the sound of Joanne beating my door down ....*run away, run away*

HEEHEE hEEHEE... just joking joanne!!

(psssssssssst....might have even been 25 minutes but don't mention it if you visit her blog ...) hAHAHAHaaaaaaaaa!!

*chuckle*

No, seriously, it was a pure fluke....please take a look at Joannes card found here at the Stampotique blog until it's uploaded to Joannes blog once she gets her act together after her night shift at work. Its uncanny how similar they are. And don't forget, Stampotique offer up a $30 Gift Cetificate to one luck drawn participant - check it out and see what you have to do to take part!.

Great looking card and I know what you are talking about as I had a chandelier for lessismoore last week
and was all ready to post it and turned on my computer and at the top of my blog roll was JOANNE`s post of HER chandelier in the SAME spot so I did not post it....I told her about it ,,she said POST IT but true what you say about being only soooo many places to stick a stamp :)
