Y&F Handmade Crafts Challenge #3--Anything but a CARD!

Happy Sunday everyone!! It's hard to believe it's already the middle of September, what, what?? I can't believe the summer flew by so quickly and now we are headed into fall. I love FALL! The cooler temps and trees changing colors and my ability to layer clothes....I LOVE layers!!

Well, enough about me, let's get on with it, hee, hee! It's been another 2 weeks (man it flew by), and we have another challenge for you on the Yumi and Fumi Handmade Crafts Blog. You'll definitely want to head over there to see if you were the prize winner from the last challenge and the top 3 picks.

Today we have a new challenge to announce!

Our challenge for the next two weeks is:

Anything but a CARD!!

You MUST use a Yumi & Fumi Handmade, La-La Land Crafts, Sister Stamps or The Greeting Farm image to enter our challenges. Please take the time to review all of the Challenge Rules HERE to make sure you qualify (the rules are under "Challenge Info" at the top tab).

Have I told you that I love making 3-D projects? I find them therapeutic.....sometimes, haha! Usually my time is limited so I don't always get the chance to work on them. I'm glad these challenges are every 2 weeks, because it gives me the time to come back to it throughout the week. These papers are Close to my Heart! I love their paper packs because everything coordinates!

I made a 5x5 card, a couple 3x3 cards, and some stationery to go inside the box.
Don't forget to come "like" the Yumi & Fumi Facebook Fan Page, so you can stay up-to-date, get your challenge reminders, and share your creations!

I REALLY need to have a go on this stationery box. I've had it on my "to do list" for a while, but have never gotten around to actually do it. *sigh* I absolutely love how yours turned out. It's amazing!!! And I love the card too. It's super cute! <3
Hugs! xx
