Scrappy of a Different Sort!

Wasn't it fun to get scrappin' last week? We loved all your artwork and photos and had a great time looking through all of the links. Thanks to everyone who played!

Also, a BIG shout out to our sponsor from last week: Heather Hunt! Random.org drew a number from our participants and the lucky winner of Heather's prize package is Nikka Geers!! Nikka, please send your address to me at mbryt1@bex.com so I can forward it to Heather and she can send out your prize. Congratulations!!

For this week's challenge, we are getting scrappy for Dad but not with layouts!! This week we want to see your cards (or other projects) for Father's Day that are made with scraps and/or recycled items. You know you have scraps lying around and other goodies that Dad will think are cool on his card so get creative and play along! Here is what the Design Team created:








So what do you think? I'm sure Dad will LOVE them! So now it's your turn. Grab your scraps or recycled items and get creatin'! Then post your item, come back and leave a link and you might just be in the next Friday Five! If you need a refresher on the challenge guidelines, you can find them in the sidebar. Have a creative week!

The card I linked you to is using the wonderful June SOM. I used some old scraps from Magic Moments and LOVE the effect. I'm enjoying your site and challenges!

Another great challenge. I used all scraps to hand make the ties. I popped up the layer on a piece of cardstock popped up to make a rack...then the hemp to make it a tie clothesline! What fun...

I am so happy to find this blog :) I am a true CTMH addict and love all these fabulous posts! Thanks for creating this sweet little blog! The card I linked to is a Father's Day card I made with Scraps from Felicity and Miracle and my last pieces of that terrific twill! The stamps is "Just like You" I believe.
Can't wait to see all the neat ideas you talented ladies come up with, Michele :)

OK Mary, this is my first challenge and I only used cardstock, ink and papers for the curtains. I'll use even MORE CMTH stuff next week, but I wanted you to see the Copic work for VC. :-D
