Challenge # 414 - Leftovers!

Happy Wednesday, all!  This week we've got a fun challenge for you.  Seeing as us Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving on Monday (with the big turkey dinner and all the trimmings) I thought it would be neat to do a "Leftovers" challenge....as a lot of us will still be eating just that!

So, there's too different ways to be eligible for this challenge:

1.  Had you made a card for a different occasion or holiday that you never got a chance to post?  Something that's now off season?  Well, now's the time to show it!  (Just to be clear.....while you made it in the past it has to be a previously not-posted creation.  No backlinking, please.)

2.  Got some scraps or leftovers from a different project?  Use 'em to make something new!  Just be sure to mention what it is in your post.

This is what I did.....


It's an Easter card - ha!  Yep, I made this back in the spring but never got the opportunity to post it.  And, see those circles of patterned paper?  Well, they aren't actually full circles.  I used some scraps of paper and cut what I could outta them, then hid their halfness behind the other paper.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Challenge # 413 - Classic Black & White

Happy Wednesday, all!  This week the challenge is "Classic Black & White" which means that we want to see projects using black & white only.  (Skin tones are allowed but you'll get bonus points if you stick strictly to black & white!)  And remember, it's not just cards that count - tags, bookmarks, layouts, altered projects....any papercraft goes!

This is what I did.....


I went with just black & white so I could score those bonus points.  :)

Can't wait to see what you create!

Challenge #412 - "Leaf" It to Me

Happy Wednesday, friends! It's Kate here and I'm thrilled to be hosting this week's challenge. Our fall leaves are a bit behind schedule this year but colours are starting to come. I thought that I would name this challenge "Leaf" It to Me - and I'd like to see leaves on your projects this week!


This little mouse image is one of the very first clear stamps that I ever purchased. I just fell in love with the characters on the "Harvest Mouse" set from My Favorite Things and thought this little guy playing in his pile of leaves would be perfect for the challenge.

Please check out the projects created by the rest of the Girlfriends and then link up your own leafy project below! I can't wait to see what you create!
