Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

I made it! 365 Cards Day 272!

Whew!  I made it!  I finished an ENTIRE week of challenges over at 365 Cards.  Whoo Hoo!  I have to say, I've had alot of fun this week AND have challenged myself to work "outside of MY box", creatively speaking...and ya know what????  I LOVED it!

Now, today's card was a bit more of a challenge than I thought it would be...my time was a bit limited today.  I started at 6 a.m...had to get the ole MOJO going with a "cup of JOE"...then I started putting all of my recipe items together...

Paper piercing...check.
Stitching...check.
Button...check.
Die Cuts...check.
5 x 5 card...check.
Stick pin...check.
Stamping...check.
Distressin'...check.
Dimensional Sticker...check.
Lace...check.

Whew...even though I did officially "finish" this card, I found I was so worried about trying to fit everything in that I realized I didn't really make a great piece of ART.  It was kinda like I used the same canvas and randomly made sure each element was included, but without the normal flow I like to use...

BUT...I DID finish!


Do I think this is my best creation?...NO. Is it vintag-y?...YES (at least somewhat).  Did I get all of the elements in?...YES.  I'd love to try a project like this again, and with experience doing a challenge like this, I just KNOW, I could eventually...create a masterpiece:)

Thanks again, 365 Cards, for all the fun!

enJOY,
