365 Cards - Challenge 170

Pam has given us a whopper today! The challenge is called "Double Duty".

"Today's challenge is called Double Duty because I want you to make a card that doubles as something else....
examples would be a bookmark, a place card, or some sort of pocket card. HOWEVER - NO GIFT CARD HOLDERS OR MONEY HOLDERS!"

Despite a marvelous example by Gloria (a phenomenal gift bag!) I was stumped all day about what I wanted to do. I guess that's OK, since I was at work and couldn't really start anything anyhow. LOL I had brought a CD into work wit
h all the pictures from our company picnic - and that got me thinking... CD case/card.

This one is for my Dad - family photos all cropped and edited and organized into files by date (He appreciates that sort of thing). His birthday is in Octob
er and I'll be saving this until then, so don't tell him!

The front reads: 2008-2009 Every Day Moments...

The inside reads: Wonderful Memories... Happy Birthday, Dad!

Patterned Paper - Fancy Pants (Daily Grind); Alpha Stickers - Basic Grey (Recess); Camera Sticker - Sandylion; Photo Editing - Picnik.com; Stamps for CD - CTMH; Ink - StazOn Black;


Now I'm off to see what the rest of you have done, and say hello on your blogs. :D

Have a scrappy day!

Carolyn, this is a terrific idea. Like you I was at work all day but I knew what I wanted to do, unfortunately Sherry did the same thing so I sorta scraplifted her. I really like what you did with the challenge and I am sure your Dad will love it!
