SFTW - Anything But a Card

It's Friday, WOOHOO!  The weekend's here so it's Stampin' for the Weekend time, and if the weather hasn't changed you might as well get your stamps out because it's miserable outside.  Even here in beautiful sunny Florida it's cold, but as we like to say, at least it's not snowing. 

In the states this is a particularly big weekend.  It's Superbowl weekend, so you may be involved in a party or like me, uninvolved with football and sitting in your craft room enjoying some inky time.  In that case why don't you play along in our challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend to make anything but a card.  

For my project I've covered a mini legal pad and put a little pocket inside the cover for coupons.  I picked up a package of these pads at an office supply store a while ago.  The pads are inexpensive so with a little bit of work and what's already in your stash you've got a great little present.  I've made a couple of these and I described how I made the cover in this post.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Teddy Bo "Shopping Daze"
ink - printer; Ranger Antique Linen
paper -Stampin' Up "Garden Green" card stock; "Delicate Dots" dsp
miscellaneous - copics; Spellbinder's "Labels 22" and "Decorative Labels 22" dies; Heidi Grace rub on alphabets; Martha Stewart border; My Favorite Things Fancy Flourish die-namics; Jolee's Boutique Leatherettes shoe stickers; EK Success Scalloped Scallops punch; embroidery floss; credit card charm; bling

Here's the challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything but a Card
Whoopsie Daisy - Bring on the Bling and Sparkle
Craft Your Passion #198 - Spots and Stripes
The Squirrel and the Fox #62 - Use embellishments
Come and Get It - Let's Go Shopping
