Today Anything But A Card and more

Sorry not been about much this week been busy doing family things and setting fire to my kitchen. At least no one was hurt and not too much damage i think.

Well this week over on CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS the theme is "Anything but a card". Now that give us all massive scope to do lots of girlie things and let our creative juices flow. So I hope you will all join us. So what you waiting for go get over there and check out the brief and what on offer this week on the blog. Also I have decided to enter this in the JUST MAGNOLIA Monthly challenge to alter a container. Hope a CD Case is ok.

I decided to have a look round and use something i could alter. So found this old CD case emptied the inside and decorated the front with some nice papers and coloured a tilda sat down. Got a postit pad cut it down slightly and stuck to front. Raided the kids pencil box for a small pencil and hey presto you have a postit stand for my desk. This can stand or lay flat and the inside can hold spare notes or follow up notes.
Hope you like. Now what you waiting for go and get busy and let us all see what you can come up with. I know a covered bakebean tin makes a great penholder.

Another example that you could do is

I made this for my friend julie's birthday to go with some stamps i got her. It is a Pad from the Papermill which you can stamp images in. I decorated the front and filled it with mostly Miss Anyas to match the front. I made a matching card but silly me didnt take a picture. Got these lovely stamps from a very good friend avril for my birthday so just had to play.
Well have i got your creative juices going yet. Hope so cant wait to see what you come up with.



Both gorgeous Sue, Dianne xx
