Word Art Wednesday Challenge- #350-351 Anything Goes (wordartwednesday.blogspot.com)
This week I am hosting the Wednesday Challenge at the wecraftcards forum [wecraftcards.com/forum] and decided to invite participants to create a card that features something unusual. It can be an upcycled item, like the bread tag on mine, or an usual pairing of images, sentiment with an image, etc. I encouraged them to "think outside of the box a bit and I'll bet you will amaze yourself. Or, prowl around on Pinterest for ideas. I saw this little spook idea many years ago and finally remembered to save a bread tag to make one." The wonderful background is actually the corner of an upcycled calendar page. The sentiment on the front of the card is a freebie from TLC Creations (createwithtlc.blogspot.com) and the sentiment on the inside is a freebie from Bird's Cards [birdscards.com] So, I just realized that this card actually costs almost nothing to make. Just upcycled items and free sentiments. (My mom, who grew up during the depression and so was the queen of recycling and creating beauty from scraps would be proud of me.)

Bugaboo Stamps- Anything Goes (catchthebugblog.blogspot.com)
It's Stamptember… and Simon Says Stamps is celebrating by hosting two challenges to use stamps [not digi images] on a card. So, I dug a few wood mount stamps out again and got busy. Have always loved this snowman card from Stampendous. For this card, I kept things fairly simple with a monochrome color scheme that has just a few pops of red accents. I've always loved the look of white pencil on grey cardstock, and it worked especially well for a snowman and snowflakes. The inside sentiment is also from Stampendous. Easy Peasy.

My final card for this post is a wonderful sentiment digi from Papercrafts magazine [papercraftsmag.com- in the downloads section]. I am entering it into the SumMoreFun challenge, highlighting the patriotic colors and stars on the mood photo.
