Sunday, September 16, 2007 every sense of the word!

woohoo, it's another fabulous CAARDVARKS mini-challenge! for this one, we can do whatever we want...BUT...finished cards cannot measure more than 2.5" by 3.5" inches. the challenge is called... (are ya ready? i loooooooooove this name!) ...

honey i shrunk the cards!!!

the DT got just slightly carried away with this one (you gotta see the gallery!) and...ok... i was no exception; four of those babies are mine! i don't think i've ever made cards as small as this, but now that i've started, i can see soooooo many uses for 'em: gift enclosures, tags, little notes that you stick in when you send packages or auction items...anything...

(making memories & vintage greeting card patterned paper; love elsie label; autumn leaves rub-ons; making memories flower; colorbox ink; characters from an old children's book)

(royal brush, basic grey, provocraft & love elsie rub-ons; sandylion sticker; jewelcraft rhinestones; scraps of cardstock)

(christina cole, basic grey & teresa collins patterned paper; bo bunny clear sticker; colorbox ink)

(making memories cardstock & wordfetti; character from an old children's book; unknown scrap of patterned paper)

the challenge runs until midnight tonight (9-16) so there's still plenty of time to get a-craftin'! fair warning, though, these little suckers are addictive! betcha can't make just one!!!

PS: on typicalifragilistic today, jenyfur shared a great way to make your own *custom* transparencies...and then the rest of the gang has also chipped in with our ideas too--so if you wanna see the whole group in action--head on over!

PSS: the scrapdragons' fourth challenge went up yesterday, and it's a realllllllly cool sketch challenge! plus, there's still plenty of time to enter my very own DRAGON CARD challenge, too!
