Too literal?


Oh, I get like that sometimes. Over at the House Mouse Challenge the challenge of the week was to devise a card using bits of junk. All the Design Team did beautiful creations -- nothing at all that looked like junk -- their work is perfect in every respect. For this card, I chose the House Mouse "pure bliss" candy box and did what is fondly called these days, "altered" it to make a place for pack rats to reside and have a box full of treasures ("junk") -- such as rubber bands, safety pins, buttons and bits of ribbon. The heart is to say "I Love Junk" -- and so I do. I've sure got lots of drawers full of it. Thanks for stopping by.

It's gorgeous - I love it. I have a box like that at home - you know - 2" of string (it might be useful).

I'm going to email you with a copy I sent to a friend of how to link. It worked for her, see if you can get it to work.
