Caardvarks Challenge

The current Caarvarks challenge is called *Kraft Macaroni & Cheese*....bit odd, no? However, it just means that you're meant to use Kraft card stock when making your creation :) This is what I came up with:
I really love this Websters paper that I used for this much so that I put some on the inside of my card too:
Paper: SU Kraft, Bazzil textured CS (dark pink), Websters Pages DP
Stamps: SU Warm Words
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip
Other: SU Choc Chip Taffeta ribbon & Hemp twine, Fancy Pants Kraft tag, Stick on half back pearls (they came in the RAK from Mad, so I don't know who makes them), Heidi Swapp felt butterflies.

I was totally inspired to make this card by the fabulous Miss Lauren's creation for the Caarvarks DT. Imagine how surprised I was when I went out to the mail box this afternoon and found that very same card waiting there for me!!!!
It was just what I needed to cheer me up & it's now keeping me company at my desk. It is so much more gorgeous in real life than my photo can make it makes me smile every time I see it :)

Hope your Monday is not too

Lucky you to receive Lauren's fab piece of art!

Wow your cards are pretty!!

Leslie Hanna said...

Love your card! I love Kraft c/s, too!

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese: Kraft is a brand name for a food products company. Mac & Cheese is a wonderful, fattening dish (pasta & cheese). So the name of the challenge is just a play on words, at least here in the States.

Oh, did you know all this? And I fell for it? Do I win anything?
