Let`s Get Wild!

this card makes me wild! i had some fun with packets of Thickers i bought ages ago and never used yet. i seem to have this problem - i buy wicked crafty products and they collect on my desk until i have no space to work. then they get put in a drawer and have to live there forever until i get them back out to play with. poor little crafty products! i apologize to you - what good is having all this stuff if i don`t use it right!

AGAIN today i`m doing a double-duty card. i seem to be short on time this week and i am not sure why! it`s not really cheating - i think it`s actually more of a challenge to incorporate 2 sets of rules into 1 card! (grin)

i found a new site last week called Rubbernecker Stamps and they have wacky wednesday challenges. the challenge is called Hard & Soft, and you must use hardware & ribbon. i`ve combined their challenge from yesterday with the day 122 challenge from 365 Cards called It`s A Wrap. you have to use wrapping paper on your card.) i love how this cheetah-print paper even looks like it`s fuzzy!

now i only have 2 to catch up on to complete the week for the 3 time in a row! wish me luck!

stuff used:
Halcraft USA - black card & envelope pack
cheetah wrapping paper (from my stash)
kraft & chocolate cs
Stampin UP! - cheetah from In The Wild set
Brilliance - pearlescent chocolate
Thickers - jewelry box chipboard stickers (chocolate)
Thickers - cream soda foam letters (black)
Imaginisce - copper brads lg & sm
ribbon from my stash

  1. Great take on the challenges! I think it's a challenge to combine challenges too. I've seen some folks get creative enough to combine 10 or more challenges! WOW! Found your blog over at the Wacky Wednesday challenge.

    Love your cheetah. He looks so proud! Love the sentiment too! Everything stays in the wild theme! Great job!

  2. Ooooooooooohhhh! Love the Cheetah + animal print! Brings out the "animal" in all of us for sure! Thanks a bunch for playing along with the Rubbernecker Wacky Wednesday Challenge!!
