A wonderful fairly new blog Lily Pad Cards is a wealth of inspiration. They are having their first Inspirational Challenge. I have throughly enjoyed their posts and thought I would take that challenge. Of their month long blogs, the blog that most effected me was their post The Frugal Crafter .
This opened my eyes to seeing past the usual for card making. I'm just a baby in the world of crafting and my cards show it. Well at least some of them do. That blog really touched me. I don't have to go to a craft store to get expensive paper or have that high end gadget in order to make a cool unique card. All I need to do is look around.
At work we use these phone messaging "thing-ies" so I tore one out and started to play with it. It wasn't being to corporative. After some playing I created a card but I wanted to make sure the embellishments were a little different, like me. :D
Again looking around... what form of communication do I use, the phone came to mind. If you have every played with it phone cord is really cool and you can make all sorts of stuff with it. However I have no clue where to get it nor did I want to spend money that would defeat the purpose. So what's like phone cord but is something I actually own? Networking Cable! We have tons of it. (long story) I found a small piece, took it apart and this is what I came up with.
Its a little different but cool at the same time.Thankfully I can still hide behind the I'm just learning statement. :D It's gonna wear off fast the way I keep using it.
