It's a Challenge, all right!

This past Christmas, we had several family members sharing some papercrafting supplies - especially anything of which we had extra or were tired. This patterned paper belonged to  my Mother-In-Law and I just couldn't resist saying it should go straight out to Goodwill. "Too silly! Ridiculous!" I said. "Are you EVER going to find a use for pink poodle paper?" I said.

My own mother commented that since the other side of my family has a quilting challenge (quilt one, quilt two, and quilt three) maybe we should have a papercrafting challenge. Funny, because she's much more of a quilter. Maybe she was joking but the idea took hold. We all had an entire year to come up with some card using this crazy paper. My sister already did hers so I thought I'd better go ahead and try to figure something out.

I can't believe that I actually like what I came up with! I like it so much I made another. And saved some bits to make still more. I mean, who would have thought a cute card could evolve out of these pink poodles??  I might just owe my Mother In Law an apology, hee hee!

Oh, and here's Julie's creation!!


  1. I hate it when that happens! I reloaded them, see if it works now!

  2. Hee hee hee - *very* tasteful use of the poodle paper! The card turned out adorable. Of course, everything you do turns out adorable!

  3. ok, I posted my challenge card too: http://julieabels.blogspot.com/2011/04/challanging.html

    It's not as cool as D's but still, I think it qualifies as completing the challenge!
