SSHP18 - Around the House!



Good Morning Everyone Happy Saturday!!! Its time for another fun Saturday Spotlight Challenge. This weeks challenge is for you to use a household item on your creation...but NOT a craft item! Use safety pins, dryer sheets, household cleaners, paper clips for doing a technique or using as an embellishment.

Our Sponsor this week is Victoria Case Art Designs!!! One Lucky winner from Mister Linky this week will be randomly chosen to win four digital images of their choice from Victoria's store. How Awesome is that!!!

For my card today I decided to use some staples as my household item. I have so many in my office area that just needed to be used...LOL!!!! I used the staples to create my ribbon frame around my image! I chose this cute digi image named Lucky from Victoria Case. Isn't he a cutie???? I really wanted to use my Inky Impressions prop Pot of Gold so I thought this image worked just perfect with it. The sentiment I used is also an Inky Impressions Stamp. I really enjoyed making this card and thinking about St. Patty's Day, its right around the corner!!! Hope you enjoy my creation!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Come on over and join in the fun at OUR BLOG we would love to see what you create!! Have a Happy Saturday Everyone!

Here's the Recipe

  • Images - Digi Image Lucky by Victoria Case colored with Copics, cut out, and popped up
  • Prop Image - Pot of Gold by Inky Impressions stamped in Momento Ink, cut out, colored with copics, and added gold glitter.
