Julia, thank you for for such an uber-cool challenge! I knew when I first read it that I wanted to participate, and have had it 'on the back burner' simmering until I came up with this project.
I explored old buttons, recalling how long ago I cut them from this or that ... nothing struck me. I went through old ribbons needing a 'repurpose'. Nada. Then I just 'moved on' without thinking about it. Voila!
I've plucked a pinecone from the front yard to cut up & make the photo corner here ... it works just right for ... Riley Goes Lumberjacking!
This is the first challenge I've ever done. I just re-organized my craft area and really needed some inspiration. I haven't made any cards or scrapped in ages. This seemed like the perfect challenge to get me going.
Frugal is the way to go. I have used cards I have kept for 29 years (yes 29!!!) and made some cards for the Australian Bush Fire Survivors...there are 6 cards so they are in 2 photos...the first of which is here:
As the self-proclaimed 'Queen of Cheap', it killed me to not be able to do this challenge last Thursday! I have about eight bizillion more items and ideas for this one, but meanwhile, I incorporated today's color challenge into this card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=78493
Thanks for looking!
I'm blogging again: random.on purpose.
Within you there is a solitude and peace to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself...
Well, this card was made for FIL's b-day and for the WT207 (Frugal Finds) challenge. My frugal find was the Life is Sweet chipboard centerpiece which I got at Mike's for 49 cents for a package of 11 different pieces made by K&Co-Amy Butler.
