Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and Craft Critique

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday to you. I hope everyone is enjoying a fantastic day. Here, we are awaiting my in-laws to arrive from the UK... lots going on. Right now it's about the 3-C's... cooking, cleaning, coloring (in that order). We are hoping for some fantastic weather for golf, BBQ'ing and touring.

This week at Sassy Cheryl's challenge, our hostess Kim has put together a challenge to use punches. So, using the mother of all punches, my trusty Zutter Cutter, I created this little refillable post-it note holder.



The inside contains a 3" by 3" post-it note that is adhered using the last note in the stack.  Once it's all used up, I just add a new package. Do you use post-its like I do? I'm a huge list person and have post-it notes all over my desk in my craft grotto.

I'm also entering this in these challenges...

Sew Many Challenges - anything goes
Stamping For The Weekend - to make someone smile and cheer-up
Papermakeup Stamps - alter a notebook
Meljen Designs - dots and spots
Opus Gluei - Season Icons (Spring!)

Before I forget... (duh) I have another article published today at Craft Critique... check out my article on Lyra pencils if you love to color like I do. Craft Critique reporters cover such a great myriad of craft products, supplies, and related material. It's a fantastic resource for us crafty people and very worth becoming a follower... there's lots of great info. And, if you have an item you would like to see reviewed, just drop me a line and I'll see what I can do. I'm always looking for suggestions.

Grab your Sassy Cheryl's digital images and play along with us. Cheryl, our sassy artist, has the cutest images perfect for every occasion and holiday. Lots of new stuff being released today.. so stop by and see for yourself.

Off to put some finishing touches on the Wired Angel's Bed and Breakfast (he-he) for our guests....

For now, cheerio mates!
