Use a Book or Newspaper

My Time To Craft has a new challenge for you!  That's right - use a book or newspaper.  I decided to use newspaper, but I wanted a different twist - so, I folded!  Here's what I made:

Newspaper is not something I would normally think of using on a card, so this was a little "outside of my box".  Overall, I'm pretty happy with the result.
How about you give it a try?  Then head over to My Time To Craft and link up your project!

 We'll be looking for you!

The Eagles

Last night, My husband and I had the opportunity to see the Eagles at the MGM Garden Arena.  I have always been a huge fan of this band, but had never seen them live.  It was a fabulous concert!  Joe Walsh definitely "owned" the night, but the entire concert was great.

Yes, I was a teenager again and I knew the words to all the songs...
What a fabulous way to begin my Spring Break!

Let me just say, "This is totally outside of my box!"  The theme this week at My Time To Craft is 'Gothic".  You'll never call me a quitter, but, I'm not sure how I feel about this one:

I added the bow to 'soften' the card a bit.  Be sure to  visit My Time To Craft to see the rest of the creations from our Design Team!

On another note - it's Spring Break and I am SO ready for it!!!
Have a great weekend!

Spring is in the air and that means....Bunnies!  That's the challenge at My Time To Craft this week.  

Yes, they are Easter Peeps - who doesn't love them??  After stamping each one on colored cardstock, I cut them out and mounted them to the light blue cardstock. I don't know if you can see it, but the yellow one is popped with foam tape.  I fancy-cut the grass and added some pom pom fringe.  Yes, we're ready for Easter!

Be sure to visit My Time To Craft for other "bunny" ideas - and submit one of your own!

Food and/or Drink...

...and I chose cherries!  I've been digging through lots of scraps that are stashed in my Craft Room.  Here is the result:

This paper was a favorite a couple of years ago and it's still a favorite of mine!  I added some Bakers Twine and small brads for the cherries.  Be sure to see what the talented ladies over at My Time To Craft have created for you!

You get to choose the type of embossing in this challenge.  I pulled out one of my embossing folders and my "Bug" to create this card:
Once again, I used things from my stash to create one.  The flower is two pieces connected with foam tape.  I embellished it with a beautiful sparkely brad!  You can click on the picture to see the details.

Be sure to stop over at My Time To Craft to see what the Design Team has created for you! I hope you'll be inspired and join us in this challenge!
