Anything Goes is the New Challenge!!

The sky's the limit, crafters! For this new challenge, you can make a card, any card, just pick one; OR you can watercolor, paint, or throw mixed media onto canvas ala Picasso; OR you can scrapbook to your heart's content, making memories as you play in the challenge; OR you can knit, sew, French knot or crochet with fingers flying; OR you can alter something, upcycling it from its original form to something faboo; OR you can create those Invitations, favors or decor for that Grad party you've invited everyone to!!
IT'S A CRAFTING FREE-FOR-ALL, with a chance to win a set of Fiskars Embossing Plates and embossing tool to one lucky random winner.
Now that we've set the mood, it's time to inspire:
Virginia has created a cuter than cute card today. She makes magic with diecuts! Love the colors in this card.
Here's a beautiful DOUBLE tri-fold shutter card from Karissa. I'm still finding things in this card that blow me away. Maybe we can get her to give us a tutorial on how she made this!
I created a mixed media canvas called "Penny for Your Thought." and yes, I title my canvases! I used an image from Ike's Art and an idea from Pinterest for it.
So, now that you've been inspired, get out those markers and paints, your hooks and needles, hubby's hammer and nails, and let's see what you can create with an ANYTHING GOES challenge!

Let's See What You've Created:

  4. I have a few to give you ideas today - but please do not include me in the drawing. First up, is that ever popular pop up box card. Check out my blog!

  5. My second 'offering' is a "use your stash" type card. The challenge I was inn was for the sunflower card but I decided to use up various pieces of card making items on my desk and wallah got a beautiful card of hearts. Check out that sticky stitch stuff - how old is that - but it looks great here! Thx for creating this challenge!

  6. Christmas cards are expensive to mail - happily we create our own. BUT how about Christmas postcards. I created my own using the direx from the net and I do believe it turned out pretty danged cute!
