Turn Toward the Sun

HOW wonderful is this saying?? I am so in love with it. I told you I loved the August Monthly Mix!! Today is Design Team challenge day at Lizzie Anne Designs, and this month our challenge was to use something unexpected on our cards - a random, found item. I tried a million times to come up with something clever (our inspiration piece had safety pins on it!). I got out a popsicle stick, twistie ties, bread tabs, pieces of old denim, a lollipop, a balloon, rubber bands....I did not love any of it.

And then I went rummaging through my earrings box, and discovered the collar tabs from one of DH's new dress shirts. WHY were they in my earring box, you ask?!? I have NO idea! But there they were, begging to be used. So I made this fairly CAS card, with an image that, although new, is most definitely one of my all time favs.

Be sure to head over to the Lizzie Anne Designs blog to see what the other designers came up with, or click on their links to the right. Have a great day!!

Same story here, too! This one was indeed a challenge! I would never have thought collar tabs would be cool for crafting, but they sure are! Great idea!
