Challenge 102 - Anything But A Card

Good Morning Everyone!

Its Pam here with your brand new challenge for this week! First of all thank you to everyone who took part in Shell's "No Design Papers" last week and congratulations to the winners!

This week my theme is
"Anything But A Card"
I love these challenges!  It makes a nice change to do something other than a card! 

Our Sponsor this week is Crafty Cards Craft and Hobby Store and they are very kindly offering this pack of Christmas goodies:

Here are a few words from Crafty cards:
 My favourite Craft shop

"We are a Small Family Business Established in 1985. Originally Print Finishers and Manufactures of Cutting and Creasing Dies ( like the ones Used on Ellison Machines ). Our Factory and Office are now located in Cleckheaton with the Craft Shop now in Heckmondwike - West Yorkshire (UK).   After 20 Years we decided that a Change of Direction was due and we chose the Craft Market as we already had the Contacts and the Machinery to Produce our Card Blanks . Very Quickly we Could see that there was a Gap in the Market for quality Craft Products at a £1.00, so after Scouring the Country for these Craft Products to put along side Our own Card Blanks, We do hope you will Enjoy the site and Come Back Time and Time Again.  As some People have already met us at The Craft Shows that we Attend it Soon comes to Light that we only do Quality products, Even Though we do Sell our Products at £1.00. And what we do say About our Cards is: " They won`t wilt on your Windowsill ".

Here are the fabulous Design Team projects for inspiration:

Pami (altered note holder)

Lisa (tag book)

Laurie (corner bookmark)

Sylvia (mini folder)

Val (configuration box)

So its now over to you.  I can't wait to see all your projects!!  You have until Wednesday 15 June at 20.00 BST to enter the challenge.  Good luck!

Love The Design Team
