Ha ha! This is challenge #13 this week on the HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS challenge site: to use your darling House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hopper stamps but you must incorporate something you consider to be "junk" or something you normally would throw away and use it on your card.
Isn't the Design Team creative in their challenges each week for the House Mouse and Friends cards? I think they are and that is one reason I look forward to working on a new card for their weekly challenges. For my piece of "junk" I pulled the pop top off my can of diet Coke and used it as a ribbon slide at the top of this card. It seemed to fit right in with my silver and blue color scheme.
Another small item I used on my card that normally I throw away are the three tiny punch out snowflakes that are surrounding the bears. These were the punch centers from the bottom snowflake border. So I gathered those up as well, added a tiny blue crystal and added it to the pop top ribbon slide for my environmentally friendly Gruffies card.
And one more thing. Will you allow me to toot my own horn? I am honored that the House Mouse and Friends design team chose me as a guest design team member for the next two weeks! Remember last week when I posted my felt marshmallow card that I mentioned that the prize was a two week gig as a guest design team member for the group? You can imagine how my jaw literally fell to the floor when I received word that I'd won and will begin for the next two weeks with challenges #14 and #15. I'm tickled pink!
So if you love the House Mouse and Friends rubber stamps and want a really great group of papercrafters to share the fun with, then head on over to the House Mouse and Friends challenge site. Each Monday a new challenge is presented.
