New Year - New Challenge

Ok we're off and running.

For each month of 2011 I am going to set a new challenge. The idea is to use up goodies in your own stash - of course you may splurge now and again and buy something but there is no pressure to do so.

For the month of January the challenge will be -



RUBONS




All you need to do is create a card, layout, OTP - whatever you like, and as many creations as you like.
(My sample card using some rubons that I've had in my stash for a few years now.)

Use up all of those rubons that are just sitting in your stash - crying out to you "use me, please!!!!!"

If you also add items starting with the letter "r", you will get an added bonus entry into the draw. So you might create a card or layout using "ribbon" or "ricrac". Cool - you'll get a bonus entry. Too easy I reckon.

At the end of each month - all entries will be placed in the hat and you will win a little something - in this case you will win some rubons to add to your stash.

So - your time starts......................NOW!!!!!!!!

WHEN YOU ARE DONE, POP BACK IN TO THIS POST AND LEAVE A COMMENT AND A LINK TO YOUR CREATION, DON'T FORGET IF YOU CREATE MORE THAN ONE - LET US KNOW SO WE CAN GO AND HAVE A LITTLE LOOKIE AT YOUR PLACE.

Entries


1. Deb's card

2. Vicki's card

3. Lisa's layout

4. Vicky F - ATC/envelope

5. Shandell's card

Happy creating everyone - enjoy!!!!!


Luv Sandie

ROFL Sandie, we are on the same wave length me thinks. I've decided I will keep my blog going with the Art Journal I've started. One of the things I've been using this week has been Rub ons! One of my art journal pages has labels from packets I've been using up. How amazing is it that I've just come to visit you and read what you are doing.
love and hugs always
Wirge. x x x
