Use It! Challenge #7


This week's challenge comes from Anja and she did some digging in her stash to create her card. I have to say that the cards are easier to design with only using 3 elements, but 5 this week really put my mojo to some serious thinking.......especially since I have a stomach bug today, many thanks to my girls...!LOL! If you click on the image directly, it should give you a huge view of the details.....

-use black or white cardstock (check!)
-4 different papers, different brands (check!)
-non scrap item (glasses, check!)
-pens or doodles (penned the tags and doodled, check, check!!)
-use something lying around: pins, buttons, ribbons, etc... (hemp, check!)

Many months ago a fellow consultant (Pam Klassan) designed a card using bi-focals she found at the Target $1 spot, saying Welcome to the Bi-focal Club. I found it totally cool and hip and saved it to my file for "future reference." Little did I know that today was the day that I would pull that copy out and CASE my own version!

Supplies: White and Black C/S CTMH, Bo bunny, Around the Block, CTMH Blue paper, and misc paper. Chocolate Alpha by CTMH, tags cut by hand, bi-focals found at Target, hemp.

I think that I was able to pull off the challenge in a very unique and creative way. Thanks Anja for the challenge! PS- hubby laughed when I showed it to him: "are they real glasses?", " of course they are honey, thanks to Target!"
