It's Time for a New Challenge at Anything But a Card Challenges - Challenge No. SIX

Today debuts a brand new Challenge... "A Stitch in Time". Are you ready to CREATE and play along??? 

There's two weeks to play along and link up via inlinkz froggy. Anything But a Card Challenges is a bi-weekly challenge and today, the Design Team showcases NEW projects using a brand-new challenge theme of "A STITCH IN TIME". Please click here to head on over to ABAC and see all the fantastic projects shared by the fantastic design team AND submissions by all of you. I will have a project featured next Sunday for week two of the challenge. 

REMEMBER this challenge blog is ANYTHING and EVERYTHING... except for Cards. ATC's aren't greeting cards...they are mini-masterpieces! So please link up your ATC's!!!

Anything But a Card Challenge 6 is "A STITCH IN TIME"!

Challenge 6: "A Stitch in Time" - incorporate an element of time (clocks, dates, postage stamps, watches, calendars, watch or gear parts) AND/OR some kind of stitching - either faux or real!
Today I am sharing two cards: one is using postage elements and the other is using stitching. Make sure to come back for week 2 of the challenge to see my creation using CLOCKS on November 18th!

Here's a couple of creative cards using items from this weeks challenge....

This card is using stamped faux postage, postage cancellation stamps, and recycled sections of actual mail. The collage with the faux postage is a stamp - stamped on cardstock, then distressed and folded to resemble an actual envelope. This is bundled on top of two other recycled envy's for some added dimension.

This card uses stitched lavender cardstock, grosgrain stitched ribbon and hand stitching along the punched zig-zag border. **A TIP** This zig-zag border punch punched a repeated dotted line above the edge, which is perfect for adding a touch of hand stitching - and I didn't have to punch the holes myself.

This theme is so broad and has lots of fun elements - you can use one...or all of them. I hope you are inspired to play along and I can't see what you create! Have a fantastic day!
