Lottery

I have had a wonderful afternoon with this weeks DCM challenge.

Firstly make a list of 10-20 crafty items you have in your stash, whether it be brads, ribbons, peel-off's, craft robo, dies, stamps, glittter, buttons, flowers, patterned papers, paint... You get the idea! Give them all a number or print them out a sheet and pop them in a hat all folded up.


Next, ask someone non-crafty to either pick 3-5 of your numbers or pieces of paper from your from your hat.


Finally, make a card using ONLY the items chosen. A card blank, some sort of sticky stuff and your basic craft tools are allowed If you want to make it really challenging, list plenty of items that you haven't used in a while, or thought you may never use again!


So I wrote up my crafty things: Flowers, dies, patterned paper, brads, eye-lets, ribbons, dies, buttons, threads, embossing, stamps, metal stuff, inks, pens and colour papers. (I could have added also glitter-glue, but for some reason I didn't...)
Eemil was so exited when he picked up five paper pieces. He didn't have an idea whats going on...


..and here are the ones he picked up for me:


First I thought it's impossible for me to make a card without ribbon and colour papers, but then noticed I've got quite nice things to play with. (I had: inks, patterned papers, flowers, embossing and metal stuff.)

So I inked the edges of patterned papers and embossed "mom". I then added some flowers, and crocheted metal wire to be tag frames. Also added some crocheted metal wire to flowers. At the very end I embossed tiny heart to metal sheet, cut out and added to tag.
