With Thanks

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in today. I thought I'd start sharing my cards from a stamp club I belong to.
We meet once a month and we make a card based on a predetermined theme and we bring it to the meeting.(The themes are decided upon at the beginning of the year. ) We also make another card using something that has been given to us to use at  the previous meeting. And boy, sometimes the things we are given to use are really interesting and challenging, 
which is why we call that card/project the challenge project.

The card that I am sharing with you today has the challenge items given to us at last months meeting. 
We can use the items on a card or anything else we can come up with. We all get the same thing to use but we all come up with really different designs. 

We were all given bread ties. You know, those plastic things rectangle or square,
that hold the bread bag closed.

This was a tough one for me.

Well, I finally came up with something.

The white rectangle shaped items on this card are those bread ties. I added some lines and dots (I used alcohol markers) to jazz them up a tad and added nestled flowers in them. 

The challenge sure does make you think outside the box sometimes.

Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations - Buttons and Blooms, Patchwork Daisy Border

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:

Well that's my project for today's post.
Hope you enjoyed it and I bet you'll never look at a bread tie the same again.  LOL
I'll be back soon

Have a great week.
