NEW! ABAC Challenge #1: Anything Goes

It's finally here - the first challenge for the newest challenge blog on the block: Anything But A Card.

I am excited to be a part of this challenge blog, especially because it is different than all of the others. It's all about anything BUT a card.

There are so many other things that can be created, so why not stretch your creativity a little and share something besides a card with us?

 I created a little piece of crafty art. A wooden slab was covered with torn pieces of an old, well-loved romance novel. I collaged it, then embellished with twine, gold stars, "brads" & dried roses from my very own garden.

Have you made something other than a card lately? What was it? I can't wait to hear about it!
This creation was submitted to these challenge blogs. See below for links, so you can share.

And don't forget to stop by ABAC and play with us, too!

This is beautiful... the romance novel and the wine-red roses go to make up a fabulously decorative piece. Congrats on the first challenge up and running at ABAC!
