Think Ink Tuesday Challenge


I wish my turkeys could always look this good! It barely makes it to the platter before my hubby is cutting into it! LOL!! This is my favorite holiday...great food, I love the fall weather, and NO GIFTS TO BUY!!! Definitely low stress! I hope you are having a great day with family and friends!
I have a Think Ink Tuesday challenge from Artful Inkables today. Deb Young is challenging us to use chipboard. I don't have too much of this stuff, but I had gone shopping with my great stamping friend, Cheryl Rowley, this past summer and we happened to find some fun chipboard albums at Michael's for $1. They also had coordinating paper already cut to cover the chipboard! Couldn't be much easier! I had this image of the dog and cat from AI's newest release called Creature Comforts already colored and waiting to be used somehow. I decided to cut it out and pop it up on two nested ovals. I wanted to add some dedication on the front like some photo albums have, and came across these black label maker alphabet bubble letters that I had gotten at JoAnn's ages ago in the clearance bin. I came up with the "friends 4 ever" because these two look like they are best friends! How many of you have a dog and cat? I only have a dog, but my neighbors had a dog and cat and they fought, but were also best friends (kind of like kids, right?). I thought this album would be cute to document the friendship between these two pets. I finished off the metal ring with some blue and black ribbons.

What types of chipboard do you have in your stamping stash that you are saving for just the right project? Letters, photo albums, flower shapes, or maybe you are saving the cardboard that comes with SU dp? Pull them out and put them to good use! And while you are at it, link your project to the the Artful Inkables Think Ink Tuesday challenge here. If you upload to an online gallery, use the code AIC08. This challenge goes until Tuesday, December 8. You could win an AI grab bag of stamps! We'd love to see how you use this material.

Thanks for stopping in and enjoy your day. Rest up for the shopping tomorrow! LOL!!

This is so, so cute, Lisa! I bought some of those albums, but didn't realize they had paper cut to match! Back to Michael's....
