Hi, Cardies!
I am so late posting today!  My laptop just died on me last night.  And if that were not bad enough, I am hosting the Greetings Challenge over at The Outlawz.  I did see that one of my Teamies, probably Angela, our team leader, went in and fixed some stuff.  Anyway, I'm glad it was done.  I couldn't right click to add links or anything else.  I am doing this at work (during lunch).  Okay enough whining.

The challenge this week is to create something for Mother's Day or For A Girl.  I have wanted to use this image for a long time and this seemed the perfect opportunity.  The flower is my first handmade flower (well, I made one from crepe paper but that doesn't really count.  This one I made from a brown paper bag.  Cool!  I am cleaning out my stash, so I'm not so sure where all this stuff came from, except the brown paper bag, which came from Kroger!! (LOL)

Thanks for looking, Ppl!!  Big Hugz, Chana

I plan to enter this into the following challenges

I will probably add to this list.

  9. Chana, Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my Doodle Pieces blog. I saw your card on Make it Monday too. I love the colors and you're right, that is one very cool flower. It's amazing what you can make with a plain paper bag and I'd love to see the flowers you mentioned making out of acetate.
