This week over at All That Scraps their challenge is to make a magnet. There are no rules so long as it is a magnet. I used my Fall Hansel and layered him on some card stock then sent the entire project through my Xyron loaded with magnet strip. Once that was complete I trimmed the edges and I had a magnet!

Blowing in the Wind

The last few days have been particularly windy here and I feel like I've been blowing around in that wind. I've been so busy the working on organizing the 600+ cards we received for our Operation Write Home drive. Needless to say, I didn't get anything else done but that the last few days, that is why I didn't get to post anything yesterday.
I did get to make a quick card this morning using Belle Sitting from Belles 'N Whistles. This card isn't for a challenge, I still have to check on challenges for this week!

Clear Cards

This week we are making "Clear Card" for the All That Scraps Challenge. I've always admired these cards but have never made one, until now that is. I think I probably should have made my background a bit smaller so more of the clear card could be seen around but all in all I am happy with 1st try.
