I have been lucky enough to win a number of crafty goodies over the last year and I was inspired by the purge blog hop last month to do a bit of "spring cleaning" of my own. (Basically I'm justifying the new crafty goodies I've bought... best to part with some of the items that aren't getting used right?). So, to win this blog candy all you've got to do is play along with the 365 Cards crew this week. You've got 7 different challenges, starting today and the winner is drawn on Tuesday. Goodies from Cosmos Cricket, Basic Gray, Prima Marketing, Close to My Heart, Shirley's 2 Girls, Kaiser Craft, QuicKutz, Niki Silvis and more.
This super cute tag was inspired by Runway Inspired and the CAS-ual Fridays play on words (which had me all tongue tied and now that I think about it my tag has a literal take on the word, but I tried). But I've used part of a pair of jeans in the tag and put them in the gift bag for my employee, who's currently making a t-shirt quilt with used pieces of clothing.
And my final card today is for the Play Date Cafe, I realized that I had 3 coordinating May Arts ribbon that were fairly close to the challenge colors. I have been admiring various bloggers use of staples and thought I'd add that element to this card (and I also ran out of adhesive, and since I made this card before the shops opened, I thought I'd try something different).
Thanks for looking... hope you can come play along with us at 365 Cards and help me make room for more crafty supplies.
