Challenge #16 - Anything But a Card

Good morning and a Happy Mother's Day to all!  We at Yumi and Fumi Handmade wish you all the best and hope you have a lovely day.

Today starts a new challenge for the next two weeks.  For this challenge we'd like you to create Anything But a Card!  That's right, you can submit anything except a card.  3-D projects, tags, altered crafts and bookmarks count, just remember if it's a card save it for the next challenge.  Today Rosie and I will share our creations with you to activate your creative juices.  For some of you it might not be necessary, but there are some of us who need a little inspiration.  :) 

A reminder about our rules...
The rules can be found in our Challenge info tab.  Click here or click on the tab up top.  They are pretty straight forward and easy to follow, we'd really dislike to remove your link because you didn't follow the rules, so please before you link make sure it qualifies.  The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to our online store.  That's right, you get to choose what you want!  Yay!  And we can't leave out our top 3, they will receive a 10% discount to our online store. 

One of the fun parts is choosing an image.  We require an image for our challenges.  We are a stamp company afterall. :)  Use a Yumi & Fumi Handmade stamp in your project and you will be entered twice into the drawing.  We realize some of you might not own one of our stamps so we've got a list of some fantastic stamp companies that you can use.  If you have a Sister Stamp, La-La Land Crafts, The Greeting Farm or our newest addition, Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, feel free to use them.  They won't count twice, but you'll qualify to be entered in the drawing.  Cool yea?!  We hope you'll consider playing along.  :)

Okie dokes is sharing time.  First up is Rosie with the cutest 4x4 pizza box I've seen in quite some time.  Peeking out  from the top of the box is AJ w/ Dragonfly.

Isn't it cute?!  To see how she put this one together hop on over to her blog post.  Oh I see some yummy Simple Stories papers and look at that bow!  How adorable is AJ?  And look how cool that dragonfly sparkles!  Way awesome!  Great job Rosie!!   Next up is me with a 2-drawer box with an easel flap.  Just in time for Mother's Day...

Leanne with Fumi with Gift:

I know you're probably saying Hey! That's a card!  Actually it's not, it's part of the design.  Without anything on top it would just be a plain ole' set of drawers.  :) 

Now it's your turn!  We're looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations coming in for the next two weeks.  Challenge #16 - Anything But a Card ends next Friday, 5/24 at noon, pst

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  For all the mother's, mother figures, aunts, grandmothers, mother-in-laws, friends we wish you a day full of joy spent being treated like a queen!  Enjoy!!

Rosie & Leanne
