"ugly" Challenge 6

And the last one for the challenge was a brown and blue paper with hieroglyphs on it. Okay Nancy, I know we live in Arizona...but this paper was U-G-L-Y! I used it for the background of this card and stamped it with a coffee word background stamp. I think its cute...and I hope you do to. Whew...challenge done! Now back to coloring some new, wonderful Pike images :)

"Ugly" Challenge 5

This paper was a faded green with grapes all over it...the color was hard to match, so I just didnt even try. This was Crops contribution to the game....and this is my contribution to Crop.

"ugly" Challenge 4

This card took me about 2 hours to just think of a use for the most horrible paper made on this planet! Thanks Stacey for making all the ugly paper I own look beautiful. Pink and white houndstooth paper...PUKE! But after tons of "thinking", this is what I came up with. I took all the scraps and threw them in the trash after tearing them into tiny pieces...I never want to see this paper again...Lol.

A little boy, who just turned 5 is in the end stages of cancer. The family is celebrating Christmas next week as they don't believe that he will make it until the actual holiday. Noah's Christmas wish this year is that he receives LOTS of Christmas cards. Please consider taking the time to send this little guy a cute Christmas card to make his last Christmas a big holiday for him.

"Ugly" Challenge 2

Okay, for the next "Ugly" paper card challenge we have Gale's paper. Origionally this was a piece of 8.5 x 10 camping paper. It had stars towards the top of the paper and a campfire at the bottom of the paper....UGLY! Wouldn't use it in a million years. Here is my use for this ugly paper....I kinda like it!

"Ugly" Challenge

So, I will have a few cards to post over the next few days. This is the "ugly" part. Last month I went to a crop where the hostess put on an "ugliest paper" game. Whom ever had the ugliest paper won. Boy, it was hard to choose...they were all pretty ugly. Prior to getting to the crop I made the announcement that I would take all the ugly paper and produce a card as a special gift. So, here is the first card that came from Marty's ugly paper. The ugly paper provided is the pattern paper with the dots. I used colored cardstock and the cactus set from CTMH. This was a challenge!
