2 Challenges For Today

First of all I must appologize for the poor quality photos, but the weather didn't co-operate when I was taking pictures. My son would say, "mom it is what it is"!
Anyway the first card is for a challenge over at Heart's Delight this week. Cindy has asked to use scraps of paper to create a patchwork card. All papers used except the card it's self is scrap paper and the verse is from heart & soul rubber stamp company
This card also qualifies for the challenge at
Next our DT over at Charisma Cardz was given the challenge this month to create something out of a paper bag. I can honestly tell you this was a real challenge and one that I probably won't repeat as I have found out that I am not a paper bag person except to embellish one to put a gift in. Below is my feeble attempt at a paperbag album. It is made using scraps of paper. The flourish on the front is made by the cricut wild card. I cut it out of the miracle tape sheets that I posted about in a previous post, then glittered it. That turned out well, but the rest is plain yuk in my estimation. I now hold a higher regard for those of you who can paperbag craft.
