Here are pics of a pail that I altered for a challenge. It was from the local dollar store. I had a lot of fun using beads, charms, UTEE, and alcohol inks. I did learn, though, that different paper fades ink color when gel medium is applied.

Wow, two cards in one day! My DH took the baby for a stroller ride on the bike path and the other two are outside enjoying the humidity-free day. I needed another thank you card for a baby gift I just received so I made a quick card which passes two blog challenge criteria. Cricut Cardz Challenge was to incorporate a scalloped shape and at Papercutz Challenge I needed to use 1 ribbon, 2 buttons, and 3 colors of my choice.
Sometimes "anything" challenges are the real challenge, but this time it worked well. I needed to do a birthday card for my aunt. She has collected owls ever since I can remember so I was really excited to use my Hoot N Holler cart. I normally layout my cards before I glue them down but this time I didn't. I made the base and put the on the ribbon before I did my cuts. I decided that I should have done a solid top with the ribbon higher because the words don't show as well. At least it's better than store bought:-)

"If I had more time I'd use a different cart.... " I hear myself saying over and over. I'm not usually the "cutesy" type but I just love this darn Create a Critter cart! It's so quick and easy to use. I should post some of my altered books so you can see I'm more into the "grunge" look. So here is my entry for this weeks Paper Playtime Challenge. EIEIO was the theme.. I just had to do the cow. Not too creative I know but like I said, I don't have much time these days.
