Just Elements! Challenge #1

Good Morning Everyone! I hope everyone is having a great day so far.

The weather here in CNY has been fabulous! I can not remember when we had a March like this.
My mood is lifted each day the sun shows itself.

Anyways I had been looking through all my things and realized I have tons and tons of elements that dont get used because I have been so addicted to my cutting machines ( Cricuts and Cameo ). So I decided a few times a month I am going to do up some projects using these things I have laying around. No Cricuts! No Cameo!
Just me and my Elements!

For this card I used some old card stock I had laying around.
And the sentiment is from Close To My Heart -- Card Chatter Birthday!

First I would love it if you spread the word about this challenge. I am thinking of doing it every two weeks on a Thursday if this one does well. So the more people who know about it and play the better chance there is I will be doing a lot more! Here is a button you can use and link back too:)

- Submit your entries via inklinkz at bottom of post!
-For this challenge I want you to create a project using Just Elements! Do not use any of the die cutting machines!
-You must use a project created or posted on your blog after this date ( March 15th 2012 ). No old projects please!
- You must post your project to you blog with a link back to here.
- I would love it it you follow me via any of the following methods I have.
- Challenge ends Midnight the 25th!
- I will use random number to pick the winner with in a few days of challenge close!

- Winner will receive $10.00 to their paypal account OR a $10.00 Hobby Lobby Card. Winner will get to choose which one! Winner will not receive both! Just one or the other.

I look forward to seeing everyone's projects!

Wonderful idea to do what I call "old school" as in before the machines. Like the clock on your card.

Chris, I am more than happy to shout out your new challenges! I'll post the button on my blog also. Yay for you!! Your card is great. Is that paper from the Heidi Swapp line? I just stumbled on to the Color Magic paper and I love it! I used it on this card I entered.

Thanks for doing this challenge for all of us Chatter fans!!

I did it! No Cricut or any other die cutting machine. I cut my leaves and grass by hand. Fun challenge. Can't wait for the next!
