A Really Silly Card

DSCF5513

Well, that's about all I can say about this card....it is just plain silly!  My bloggin' friends Kelley, Ann (and a few others) along with their friend Courtney, have a challenge on Courtney's blog, One Day at a Time.  The challenge is called Everything but the Kitchen Sink, and you are to use something from your mail to make your card.  I got a flyer for a magazine for women in the "over-40" age group (yep, that's certainly me!) and this just was so in-your-face, I had to save it.  Today at midnight is the deadline to enter, and there is a nice $25 gift certificate involved, so even though it is silly, I am going to NOT act my age and submit this ridiculous card!!! 

  • Stamps:  Simple Serif Alphabet (ret SU), Crafty Secrets
  • Paper:  Bermuda Bay
  • Ink:  Stazon
  • Acc:  Felt flowers, Stick-on Dots
