Perfect Sentiments Challenge

Another great Challenge over at Perfect Sentiments
The Challenge: create a card that reflects a sentiment of "Thank You" (remember your sentiment must be on the front of your card)
The Twist: use the following sketch as the inspiration for the design of your card (feel free to flip or rotate the sketch to make it work for you as long as we can see the basic layout of the sketch in your card)

So, I decided to Make my card without flipping it but instead of a box I used a tag.
Hope you like it...
We are honored to have Patties Creations as our sponsor again.
The winner will receive one digi file.

Desk Pencil Holder

So when I emptied the last of the salt out of the box I didn't want to throw it away because I knew I could come up with an idea of how I could use it. After a couple of days I cut the top off and realized that it was really sturdy. I covered it in paper and it just went from there. I sent the first one I made with my husband to his work to give to the secretary. She sent me a nice message and wanted to know if I could make her three for Christmas gifts. So, off to the dollar store to buy more salt. Now if I could figure out what to do with all the salt I had to put into a ziploc bag. Check out how they turned out...

Easy peasy !! and I have recycled ... Love it...
These would look really cute on a desk.
Thanks for stopping by......

Perfect Sentiments Challenge

Perfect Sentiments is at it again.... Here is the recipe for the new Challenge...

 Make an aniversary card............... Now for the catch.....

Now for my card I looked at this picture and of course the first thing I see is the Chandalier and the curtain. But then I took another look and saw the shutters in the background. So off to the craft room where I found some strips of cardboard that was in a package I got at work. I spray painted it black and cut strips to look like the shutter. Then I printed a Chandalier from the Home Decor cartridge and spray painted them silver sparkles. I finished the card off with a cute ribbon, a few white flowers and and aniversary sentiment... And here it is....
Now this challenge is sponsored by

Guest Designer at Perfect Sentiments

 I have the wonderful pleasure to be a Guest Designer in the latest challenge at Perfect Sentiments.
                                               The challenge was....
So for my project I started with some red card stock. Then I used Martha Stewart punch along the bottem of the card. I cut glitter paper to mat my card and tied a ribbon to make it look like a present. I used a Santa stamp that I received on a Christmas card last year. I added glossy accents to the stamp to make it sparkly too. A perfect " Sparkly" card to sent to anyone on my list this year... I hope you enjoy.

Prize for this challenge will be a $ 15.00 gift certificate from.....
A|Muse Studio
                                  (Prize is limited to US participants only.)
