directions?

Good morning stampers! You know what today is right? Yep, Belli Challenge day. Are you looking forward to a fun challenge? Yeah? Well, don't look at my project then. Or wait...you could just ook at it and pretend it is teeny tiny instead. Today's Belli Challenge is to use clips...paper clips, mini library clips...something like that. Well, the card I was working on just didn't lend itself to a clip of any sort. Well, I guess I could have used a paper clip that SU! has but I was all out of those so...I used a giant binder clip and decorated it up. I love to make these for little gifties. The recipient can put a favorite picture or card in the top to show it off. I think it would be fun to put a Christmas greeting in this one.

This clip is decorated using SU!'s new Frosty Day designer paper, Cute and Curly stamp set with the punch, and some Kiwi Kiss ribbon. Not at all traditional Christmas colors but I think it is a fun blast to the past!

Now would you like to see what you really should do for the challenge? Okay...go see the blogs below for some wonderful examples of this challenge. Also, if you make something with a clippie type of thing make sure you post a link to it on Chris's blog (if you upload to SCS use CBC38) for a chance to win a little gift from her. Here are the links to those participating in the Belli Challenge this week...

Hopefully I didn't forget everyone and hopefully you all can forgive me for not following the challenge exactly! I do hope, however, that you like my binder clip!

Wanna hear something kinda exciting...okay, very exciting? Korin asked me if I could fill in for Christi as the October Guest Designer on the Sweet N Sassy Stamps Blog! I, of course, said yes so...you can see my bio and first card HERE. The sad side of this is that my friend Christi is having a hard time right now as her husband's grandma (whom they are all very close with) is not doing well. Please visit Christi's blog HERE and leave her some love, k?

Well, I hope you have a great Wednesday! Go and be creative!

To cute they could work for many things. Even a good grades paper to display on a frieg.
I never even thought of using these clips. Have to dig mine out.
