Out of the Box Challenge!


Introducing... the spiral daisy as..... a FERRIS WHEEL! Hee, hee - I was so *excited* to share this with you! This is to play along with Elena's Out of the Box challenge over on the A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA blog. And what's cool is that once I had my "thinking outside the box" hat on, I came up with two other fun designs! (I'm not gonna post them quite yet - gotta spread them out a little, but you'll see them soon!)

And I also thought I'd share my Inflatable Santa card that's a sample over on the Out of the Box challenge post. This is one of my favorite designs and was an A Muse Card-of-the-Week in 2006. I drew the little lines from the Santa with a journaling pen and a ruler - to make him look like he was one of those huge inflatable Santas that you see at Christmas tree lots!
