Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Anything but a Card!

Time for a new Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and I think I am the hostess :). I chose the theme Anything by a Card because I love to make altered projects and hope you do too. I used We're All Ears:

I love to create little gift boxes for my grandkids using the Hobby Lobby or Michaels ones they have at the check-outs.  This one happened to be black so I didn't have to paint it or cover the bottom.  Here is a pix of the way it looks apart:

Colored the image with copics and then added two strips of musical note washi tape.   3 lady bugs and a happy tag were the fun elements I added to the front and a beautiful large red rose which I made a while back in one of my marathon rose making sessions :)  Sometimes it is nice to just grab one and attach it LOL.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT projects, they are very creative you know!!!  Grab a Sassy Cheryl's image and add it to an altered item or make a tag, book mark, gift bag, the possibilities are endless.  Cheryl has lots of new images to choose from too.   One in particular I am grabbing for a bookmark or back to school journal  :)

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful creative day, remember crafting is cheaper than therapy!!! That's my story and I am sticking to it!!!

I do love your roses and marathon sessions are a way to go. I need to follow in your footsteps and have one myself.

This little tin is perfect for a gift card and then they can hide their treasures in them afterward. All Ears Sally looks pretty cool on the gift box too. I do love they way you craft lady.

This is such a great idea, Cathy! I don't think of things like this. You really DO rock the "anything but a card" concept. I'm going to make some of these for my grandkids for Christmas...they're great for a gift card!! Thanks for the inspiration! Big hugs. Pat
