Wow have been asked by Natalie and the team over at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS to join them. So just had to share hope you will all join us on our weekly challenge. You can find us at where the challenge is set lunch time wednesday.

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.

Miss Anya Trifold Wallet

Wow do love these new Miss Anyas. Got both sets from a dear friend Avril Queen B over on docrafts for my birthday and wanted to do something for her as a thank you. So decided i would make a wallet and put some nice images in for her to play with as she is just starting to watercolour. So as she sent me the Miss Anyas what better than to use these.Decised to go with the new set with the sunshine one and when you open i choose the one with the umberella. I was thinking of the saying i read somewhere but couldnt remeber the exact words. Come rain or shine you are a friend of mine. Well it is something like that. Basic grey papers and papermaina ribbon which ties to hold together. I did a double fold as a spine to hold the images due to the thickness bit like a book.
