ABC - it's easy as 1-2-3....

This week our challenge is an ABC challenge - Anything But a Card!

Before we get to the DT's samples, I want to welcome Natacha as our prize sponsor this week. Check out the great package of goodies that will go to one lucky player:


Included is a stamp set, a rub on sheet, a notebook and an address book - aren't they pretty? Thank you Natacha for sponsoring us this week! You can visit Natacha at Scrapbooking, Card Making and Me! and check out her creations.

Ok now on to the DT samples this week. Our 1st sample is from our July Guest Design Team member Jody who created a very cool altered clipboard with notepad and pen:


Adorable! Happy to have you playing along with us this month Jody!

Here is what the rest of the team "whipped" up:






If you want to find out all about these fabulous projects (and why wouldn't you?), click on the name below the photo and go check out the DT member's blog and description. And love them some lovin' while you're there - they are some hard working, creative dynamos!

Now it's your turn to create something that is Anything But a Card! Post a photo of your project to your blog or other online gallery and then come back here and leave a link to that post. We can't wait to see what you create easy as 1-2-3!

I was waiting for this challenge! Unfortunately, I just moved and my crafting stuff is still in boxes! Sooo, I pulled from the archives. I hope that's OK!

Great challenge to try out, got me to use my candy tin that I have had forever! I am just getting started with a blog and challenges so I hope I did everything right!

Hope it's okay to post a previous project - granted mine is only a few weeks old. Hopefully it still counts! I hope to see this specific challenge again some time. :)
