I'm on a roll....a few challenges in one post!!

Seriously, on a ROLL!!! I went through my Google Reader & picked out a bunch of challenges to do & started doing them!!! All my DT committments were done, so I thought I'd play in some this week!!!!!

The first thing is being entered into the Fab n Funky Challenge blog which is an easy one this week - make anything for any occasion!!! So, I made a coupon book/holder thingy!!! LOL I bought a coupon holder from the dollar store and covered it. I added Kitchen Tilda and a jar (both from Magnolia) and am thinking about adding a notepad or post it note pad on the inside - what do you think??



Here is the front piece (I might add the note pad or post it note pad here?!?!?! What do you think??)

And here is the inside, with labelled slots to put your coupons in so they are easy to find!

This next card I am entering into 3 challenges. The image is Snow Dog from Designed2Delight, a new digi store I just discovered! Faith has very cute images, go check it out!!! The paper is from my Christmas scraps bin, and the snowflakes are punched out of the swirly vellum. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.


Here are the 3 challenges I am entering this into:
1. CPS which was to follow this sketch (which I turned on its side):



2. Bee Crafty which was to use a Digi image and make a Thank you card

3. Scrapbook Trends magazine which is to use snowflakes

This third card is being entered into The Pink Elephant challenge which was a recipe this week: 2 Designer papers, 3 buttons and snowflakes. I used another digi image from Designed2Delight cuz this snowman is just too cute!!
And lastly, this fourth card is being entered into Digital Tuesday Challenge which is Valentine's! Guess I better get a head start on those so this challenge is perfect!!! I used a digi image from Karen's Doodles - another digi company I just discovered & fell in love with! How cute is this beaver???


Well, that is all I have for you today - I know it was a lot & I don't normally show 4 cards in one post but they all had deadlines right around the same time, so thought it was best to post them all together!! I hope you made it through the whole post!!!!! THANKS if you did!!! LOL
Have a great day!!!
Chris

Wow Chris, you have been really busy. I love the coupon holder. I am a coupon demon. I never go shopping with them. This would look so much better than my plain black one. Thanks for the idea. Love the cards also.

Fantastic! I wish I could get on a roll like that. I hope to be home this afternoon crafting, but with the really cold weather that might turn into sitting by the fire instead of in my craft room.

Wow you have been busy. All the cards are beautiful but I especially like snow dog that would just be one of my dogs. As for your coupon idea I wish we had such a thing over here in the UK it is a real rarity to get a money off coupon.

Wow how long did those all take you? I can never seem to finish a card in less then 3 hrs. And that's if I sit still!! LOL!! Love the Magnolia one and the rest are so cute as well. (I'm biased on the Magnolia's myself. LOL)

Have a great weekend!
