'Journey by Air' Paper Bag Card ...

Pin It

Happy Stump Day, hampers ... hope you're having a great day!

Today's altered art project is a paper bag card created for the current Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge ... to use Tim Holtz Idea-ology product. I've used a number of different Tim-products in this paper bag card ... for a complete list, check out the Card Recipe at the bottom of the post.

Here's a look at the interior of the card:

And finally, a look at the front and back covers of the card:

If you'd like to give this paper bag card a home, it is available for purchase for $12.99 ... free shipping to any U.S. address. Simply post a comment letting me know you're interested.

I've entered this paper bag card in a number of terrific blog challenges ... check out the complete list, below.

Soooooooooo, yesterday Sheila and I teamed up to run some errands. Because Sheila's crazy fun sister Jill is without wheels, we had to pick up a few things for her, too. We stopped by her house to drop off her necessities and found her swearing at her computer.

"I can't sign in to my (*omitted for Jill's protection*) account!" Jill complained.

"Well, it's looking for your password ... just type in your password." Sheila insisted.

"I can't ... it's not working. Will you try?"

"Sure. What's your password?" Sheila asked.


"Why on earth do you have such a ridiculous password?!?" Sheila asked.

Jill rolled her eyes and said: "Hello! It has to be at least 8 characters long and include at least one capital."

I kid you not ...

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
