City Crafter Challenge Blog...


Hey all...  It's that time of the week again.
Time to play along with CCCB!
Ros has come up with such a fun challenge..  I had so many different
Ideas for this challenge and I know you probably will also.
She is getting us BACK TO BASICS.
What does that mean..  A little paint and a little cardboard.
That's it..  You can do that, right.. 

So here is what I came up with.




I was originally going to make a wall hanging but ended up with a card..





 A little stitching to go along with the lace and punched trim..
With a little crinkled seam binding.. YUM.. 



 

 I cut out this little piece of cardboard in the shape of a heart and
then added some paint and a little twine..


So there you have another fun challenge..
If you would like you can head on over to CCCB and
get all the details on this challenge or you can take a look at what all the other
gals have come up with..

Hugs, Linda

I am up to video #12 I think, but haven't get any supply yet, went to Michaels yesterday, but too late, they closed early for Memorial day, I will watch a few more videos before i decide what to buy, there are just too many products, not sure what i really need and want!
