We are back from Houston and I am back in my stamp room. I couldn't miss the Sunday night Featured Stamper challenge which is my favorite challenge of the week on SCS. I decided I would post a card and I would report on how the weekend went.

We stayed at the Hotel Derrek in Houston which was a very hip happenin' place that is on the busiest intersection in Houston. The location was great. It was close to some of the best shopping in the country. Which you know I loved, but Matt could have taken or leaven (if leaven is a word). We went to a couple of great restaurants. One restaurant was a very authentic Mexican restaurant and the other was a restaurant that featured very fresh Gulf Coast seafood. They were both great choices.

The conference, while run pretty poorly, ended up being very informative for us. There was an expert on Interstitial Cystitis from Colorado. He had an absolute wealth of information and knowledge on chronic pelvic pain disorders like I struggle with. The biggest thing I took from the conference was that I should find a different Urologist. I had assumed that since mine couldn't help me that no one could. I got the idea that if I went to see this guy or someone that he would recommend there may be more they could do for me. I am thankful that we went and think it was helpful in getting me unstuck from the place I have been stuck in for the last couple of years.

Here is the card I did for the challenge. I used the Bodacious Bouquet, Warmest Regards, and Riveting SU stamp sets. I used Cool Caribbean, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, and Almost Apricot ink. I used the same colors of papers as I used inks. I used SU brads, light orchid ribbon,

SU circle punches, SU oval punch, ticket corner punch, dimensionals......and I think thats it.
