Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything but a card...


We're off on a Easter egg hunt today!! And being the super parent I am - I'll be sure to help my children eat their chocolate Easter eggs. Obviously I won't enjoy doing that one bit... but it's for the children!!!

It's time for a new challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend and our theme this fortnight is Anything but a Card.  We have a new sponsor for this challenge - Flat Friends:

They have some super cute images, so why not hop on over and check them out.

So here's my project for this challenge:

So I decided to pretty up my penny jar ...although I'm probably not going to get too far on a rainy day with a jar of pennies! I'm quite pleased with my image - it's not like me to go and use such a bold contrasting colour.

Why not pop over to the Stampin' for the Weekend blog and see all the beautiful things that my teamies have created. I hope you can join us for this challenge!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Anything Goes but a card

What a great image and sentiment for your money jar. We have a big cup we throw our coins into - maybe I will dress it up a bit. Thanks for joining us at THE PAPER SHELTER this week. Please stop by again. Hugs Sheryl xx

Very cute - love the image.

A guy I work with told me just this week that he has two large cans full of quarters - quarters only and he's starting on the 3rd can now. Said he never spends quarters! :D
