CES Challenge 69...Anything But a Card!

Morning me lovelies, waaahaaay it's the weekend...I don't what we're doing yet but you can be sure I'll be fitting in some crafting at some point...I've had some ideas swimming around in my head this week for cards but no blimming time to put them into action...does anyone have a watch like Bernard's....he was the little boy who could make time stand still with his stop watch! I loved that TV at it's best!

So here we go with a lubberly jubberly new challenge at CES Challenges...the gorgeous Shell has chosen this weeks theme and it's a real smasher....ANYTHING BUT A CARD! I know most of us tend to panic when we are asked to make anything other than a card but I was really excited about this theme as I had been wanting to make one of these little milk cartons for quite a while now and this was the ideal opportunity to crack on with one. As usual my gorgeous teamies have created some pretty cool projects and you can check them all out on the challenge blog.

I even made a matching little gift card using my new Sizzix Scalloped Die-Cuts...GO ME!
