Inky Impressions Challenge - RECYCLE!!!

This week is the last challenge week with our current Design Team. It has been a GREAT 2 months and it has been awesome getting to know each of the Inspirational Inkettes!!! The new Inspirational Inkettes will be announced very soon, so keep your eyes open for the announcement.

Now, onto our challenge!! I love this challenge - to recycle - to use something again that had a previous purpose! It could be anything - ribbon, bubble wrap, a button, an old box, cardboard, etc. I had this chocolate box sitting around since Valentine's day just waiting for the perfect chance to reuse it!!! I covered the top and bottom with DP from SU, sanded the edges, added pink ribbon to the side, and used my heart Nesties to mount the image of LiLi's Secret from INKY IMPRESSIONS!!!! This image is soooo cute and perfect for "secret" things - journals, diaries, treasure boxes, surprise parties, etc. So, I made a little treasure box for my niece. Here it is:

Please join us at Inky Impressions Challenge Blog for this week's challenge!! This week, all of the Inspirational Inkettes are participating so please head on over to the blog to see the AMAZING talent this group has!!!! We can't wait to see what you create with your Angelica & LiLi stamps, so be sure to join us on this challenge and post on the Challenge blog!

Thanks for popping by!!

Janet's Corrosive Challenge #22

This week over at Corrosive Challenges Blog, the challenge was to make a project that was JEM inspired. For those of you who grew up in the 80s you will know who JEM is!!!! I love the 80s - the music, the TV, cartoons, the clothes (ok, maybe not so much the clothes - LOL), and the innocence of life!!!For this card I used a digital image from Squigglefly called Disco Daze & I GLAMMED her up!!!! LOL I used stickles galore and wild colours to match the DP! Wish I looked this good in glitter!!! LOL Inside it says.... "Dance like no one is watching"
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! Have a great week!!!
