Shopping Our Stash #253 ~~ Square roots AKA Anything but a Card!!!

A new week a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash, Anything But A Card, now I don't make very many "projects" the odd candy holder but this challenge gave me an opportunity to make something I have wanted to try for a while, a business card holder. It's Victoria Day weekend here in Canada and we are enjoying the sunshine although inside the cottage is quite cool.  So without a lot of embellishments on hand here is my offering for the challenge.


As you see I just grabbed the business cards from my purse as I don't have any printed yet, The one showing is from the spa I get my pedicure done.

Here is the second project I did for the challenge...............................


I am sure glad I brought the Botanical Builder framelits from Stampin'up with me this weekend or I would have had nothing to embellish my projects with, no ribbon, no rhinestones, no pearls and no stickles....I'm thinking I should be packing a bit better. The one rhinestone I used on the mug was on the table, not even sure where it came from but the tiny ones I had to buy at the $$ store. And so starts a summer of crafting at the lake,

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can find some time to make a project for the challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

Your projects are so pretty and fun!!
That mug is so cute.
We only go to our cottage on the weekends, as my husband isn't retired yet, and I know how it is when something is forgotten. I'm planning on bringing less up with me though, as I never get half of my crafts done when there as I am outside most of the time, lol.

LOL, it's funny how rhinestones and sequins can show up in the strangest places! But there you go, you needed one and there it was. I love these two projects!

I forgot to tell you how much I like these projects... and it tickles me that you found the gem on the table! I wonder how many cards I could finish with stuff that has fallen behind my desk?? LOL!
