WOOHOO!  It's Saturday and if any of you are like me it's been slow going or NO going on the crafty time!  But this week's challenge is FREESTYLE so time to get out something, anything!! and get our crafty on!  Any color, any project just create!  You will have until Friday night January 6, 2012 to get your creation linked below.

What? Everytime I say, type, or write 2012 my mind feels like it's in twilight zone!

I just love this paper and didn't want to cover much of it so I kept it VERY simple!  I really like the way it turned out though!

Here's what I came up with:

Border was cut from Elegant Edges using fit to length at 5".
Card Base: PTI Canyon Clay 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  PTI Ripe Avocado 4 1/8" X 5 3/8", Enchanted Evening 4" X 5 1/4", DCWV the Cafe Mediterranean stack 3 3/4" X 5"
Ink:  SU Night of Navy
Stamps:   PTI Mixed Messages
Accessories:  Cricut & Elegant Edges, SU Dusty Durango ribbon,

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!
