I am a work in progress. Always trying to improve my inner-self. How can anyone judge another without first doing inventory on one's self?

ANYTHING but a card!

For this week's challenge you'll create anything BUT a card! It's up to you what you make as long as it's NOT a card!

This week we have two lovely sponsors:

PRIZE: FOUR digis of winner's choice
Our very own DT Sister, Leonie, who has provided this prize for our lucky winner:

JUST KIDDING!!  I'm so sorry...I came across this old picture in my blog-stuff folder and I couldn't resist!
Her REAL PRIZE is AWESOME (but NOT as awesome as SHE is!):

My project is boring.  YES it is and DONT try to convince me it isnt!  I wanted to make treats for my son's class with the idea of something festive for their Halloween party yet easy to reproduce 24 times. I came up with a microwave popcorn package.  It doesn't look half bad in person (like the kids care anyway!) but after photographing it I just don't feel "satisfied" with it. I think I'll add some chocolate along with the popcorn so the kids aren't totally disappointed as well, LOL....

I used stamps from the STAMPIN' UP! sets "Dark & Dreary" & "House of Haunts."  
I think it needs more spiders :)

Create a card or project that includes "B"uttons, "F"lowers and the word "F"riend/"F"riendship!

SPONSOR: My Favorite Things

PRIZE: $25.00 Gift Certificate

This is one of those cards that a photograph did not do it justice!  
This adorable image is from the Pure Innocence collection at My Favorite Things .  The name of it is  "A Cart Full of Friends." 
I used my trusty SU! markers and skipped the pencils.  I had some issues with her skin.  I wanted more color and dimension but the paper started breaking down and I had to STOP coloring!  
I'm still learning :)
I'd love to make duplicates of this card and send it to a few friends.

Layer it on

Create a card that has at least five layers! This can be designer papers, and cardstocks stacked on top of one another, 3-D effects, pop-ups, embellishments, etc...You decide! Just make sure you have five layers somewhere on your card front when you're finished!

SPONSOR: The Greeting Farm

PRIZE: SINGLE of winner's choice

I used all Stampin' Up! stamps for this project.  NO patterned papers, its all stamping and distressing.  
Did  I meet the challenge??  Let's count at the "thickest" point, shall we?
1. first layer background matt
2. stamped background
3. clock face
4. red torn edge
5. matt for sentiment
6. sentiment

6!   6 layers.
Mwaaaa aaaa aaaah!  (lightning and thunder)  
Did any of you get the  Sesame Street reference??  The Count?
I've had way too much sugar....
