Don't you just love it when "ANYTHING GOES" and it fits so many challenges?

Good Morning, and a happy Monday to you all. It's gloomy and rainy here in NY today, but it doesn't matter to me, I'm just relieved to finally be free from work for the next 3 weeks. Sleeping in later didn't happen, my body must think I'm not allowed to do that. ha ha....

So with a cup of coffee in hand, I went to my craft room. I love mornings like that....

Anyway, you didn't come here to read all about that, did you?

Today we have a brand new challenge over on the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog. And it's an easy one. "ANYTHING GOES".... so all you need to do is use ANY of your Elisabeth Bell designed stamps, and create something and enter... Of course if you DO happen to use a stamp from Belles 'n Whistles, then you could have a 2nd entry into the drawing. More details about that, can be found over at the challenge blog.

I created a cute little note holder with pen set. In our classroom at school, one of our teachers LOVES her index cards. She uses them for everything. So I thought it would be a cute idea to create this "index card" holder for her. Also, considering she is always losing her pen, I figured the pen holder would help. The adorable image I used for this is called "Story Time" from Belles 'n Whistles SweetArt Girls 1st set.

This cute little box also fits perfectly into this weeks 7 Kids College Fund ChallengeAnything BUT a Card.  Yep, it fits, because this is NOT a card.  AND.....  "Story Time" is sold in the 7 Kids College Fun Shop...  =)

Not only that, but "Story Time" is the perfect stamp for this weeks Stamp Something Challenge - The Dog Days of Summer.  So This just HAS TO BE entered there as well. 

and another angle....

This is a nice solid box, and doesn't tip over easily, which is definitely what I was hoping for.
Believe it or not, I used the box cover from a Scrabble Game to create this box, including the base of the box. That old scrabble game had seen better days, but I think I can say I've given the box lid new life with this little project.

Now, before I leave, I just have to share another thing I recently created.
This one is for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
They wanted us to use "ALL WHITE"What could be more perfect than an all white wedding card?

I just so happen to have the absolute PERFECT stamp for this very occassion.
Brand new from Elphine House Australia
"Kathy Bride and Little Kitty"
Isn't that bride absolutely GORGEOUS? I just can't get enough of her.
I have a feeling I will be stocking up on making wedding cards with this one.
I love love love her....

Paper take Weekly has a challenge with the theme of "GROW YOUR OWN" they want to see your flowers, I actually LOVE the look of these beautiful rosebuds from Wild Orchid.  So I think this card would also fit the challenge over at Paper Take Weekly.

How about "Lace it Up" Challenges?  Do you see that gorgeous lace?  Truly Scrumptious has a challenge this week wanting to see you using LACE.  =)
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today, and I appologize for my long post.
