    I have this clear bag that is taped and held on with magnets on the front of my craft table. I put stuff in there that I want to save and use later. They need to be put in the folders so i can find them later. I have things sorted. So I dipped my hand in there and pulled out a rubber stamp. WTH? That doesnt count. I pulled out a few things and one was a few words or quotes. I used a bunch of punched circles, leftover from the first trash to treasure swap I hosted. I coated the whole thing with Tim Holtz stuff.

    The bird, I am pretty sure was a leftover from a trash to treasure. WE were sent a coffee filter, I painted it and cut out some images. The bird was a leftover. Someone sent me this cute boy.

    This card is awesome. I had these 3 fun foam shapes given to me, and had no clue what to do with such an odd item. Bernie Berlin in her books has a project where you use the fun foam and cover it with gesso, and go from there. I used black gesso, and red and yellow cheap spray kids paint from Walmart. I love this paint. It is in the kids craft section. It is acrylic not some glimmer mist stuff.

    Ok So I think this is going to be to hard to mail cause it needed the gems and even the the fun foam is squishy now i have added even more depth to the or clunk. But had to show it off. Someone gave me the bird image and I used it instead of filing it away

    Another card and not even close to my last cards as I am sure I have more up my sleeve.

    Again these are items given to me and not yet filed. The flower and silhouette seemed to go together.

    This sounds like a fun idea. I don't want to overcommit, so I'm going to lurk, but I already have a little box of "unfiled" bits on my work table which would be great for dipping into...

    I'm in. I have so many drawers and boxes and bins of little bits of "stuff" that I would love to use with some kind of goal?

    Welcome to the lurking couch NYJunkie. Have fun playing.

    Just to let everyone know that I am going to the UK from 13th to 19th, so won't be as active on the site. I will try and check in periodically, but I won't find any mail until I return on 20th, which may delay things a bit.

    Another lucky dip card

    This one was a bit of a struggle, because I drew out the pumpkin. I hate halloween themes, so after resisting the temptation to draw a different item out, it became my favourite Pumpkin Soup recipe.

    I was having trouble with the idea of putting items into the bag and then withdrawing some - knowing I would know the "feel" of some things, so I got my 4 year old granddaughter to reach into the bag and, without looking, pull 10 items from the bag. I had put postage stamps, a couple of 3 dimensional aphemera and several images in the bag. She only pulled out images, which was interesting. I know we're supposed to build our cards around 1 lucky dip item, but I plan to use 2 per card out of the ones she pulled and make 4 cards, which means either I won't use 2 of the items or I'll put 3 on 2 of the cards. I hope that's okay? I haven't made any cards yet - still in the stage of trying to figure out how to use the items she pulled.
