Guest Designer @ For Fun Challenges!! - Project 1

For Fun Challenges

I couldn't be happier to tell all of you that I am the guest designer at For Fun Challenges for 2 weeks!! If you are not a follower of For Fun already, you really should be! They always inspire me with great challenges.

This weeks Challenge is Anything Goes! 

There is no sponsor this week so just use some of your stash and have FUN!

I knew I wanted to use my new Tim Holtz On The Edge Die: Scrollwork. And keeping with my New Year's resolution, I wanted to make a birthday card. I started pulling supplies and knew I was going to end up with a masculine card so that is how it ended up being my cousin's husband Tim's card.

I used the Stampin Up set Sense of Time for the background and the big clock and Bring on the Cake for the Happy Birthday. I distressed the edges and used Quick Quotes ink in Mocha Mama to make the distressing darker

After stamping and cutting and distressing, I used Tim Holtz tiny attacher to attach the border and the Happy Birthday rectangle. Then I used it to "hold closed" my torn spots on the clock.

I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out. 

Then I have a little funny story. I mailed this out to Tim on his birthday and on my way home I realized I never signed the inside of the card! LOL. Has this ever happened to you? My return address is on it, so he should know who it came from but I couldn't believe I just simply FORGOT! So now as soon as I stamp the inside of my card, I am signing it immediately!

So I hope this inspires you to use some of your stash and enter this great challenge. Entries are due by 1/17/12!

Come back next Wednesday the 18th to see my second project with For Fun Challenges!
