I love the craft challenges and should do them more often. I love seeing what different people see in the item and as usual, the outcome was amazing!
Okay so Craft Challenge #3 were these date cards:
So on with the results:
From Shara we have a Party Every Day card! Now that is my kind of schedule. Shara says she's not much for paper crafts but I think she's pretty good, no? You can read her post about it here.
And this one comes from Kai who swore up and down that her card couldn't possibly be as good as the others. Really? How clever! The woman's arms move like clock arms! Love it.
Very Mary took a different approach and attached her card to what I think is a notebook. I love the vintage lady with all her "to dos."
Laurie from Magpie Ethel made her card into a little house! I love the little windows with the ladies peeping out. See her post here.
Darla's is a collage with lovely images. I love all the clock faces! Here is her post about the process.
Aimee-Suzanne also took the collage approach and incorporated some vintage labels. I can only imagine her collection of ephemera! Gorgeous!
This is mine. I was thinking vintage luggage tag and have been dreaming of Paris lately. I'm not in love with this project but it's still pretty cute and I got to use up some cute rub-ons I've had for awhile.
Thank you to everyone who participated! What great ideas. :) I hope to come up with something for a new craft challenge soon!
Please take a moment to check out my latest Trash to Treasure article with a great idea for turning a vintage book into a clock from Heidi at Vacuuming in High Heels & Pearls! I'm off to DC tomorrow. Have a great weekend and I'll see you all when I get back!

PS - Check out your local Big Lots! I found some great Martha Stewart Crafts items for only a dollar a piece yesterday. I'll share the loot when I get back!
