CC3Challenge 15!

Ack...can you believe we are already on Challenge 15?
It's a bit unreal to me...feels like we just started this yesterday! 
I hope you are enjoying yourselves and finding time to get inky, wink. 

This week's challenge sponsor is Inspiration Emporium who has donated a $50.00 Gift Certificate!
Wow...and if that's not enough we still have bunches of prizes that Tim and Mario donated! 
All you have to do to be entered for these fabulous prizes is follow a few little rules here when you post your project! Easy peasy, wink. 
Now if you don't have your very own copy of Compendium of Curiosity III, 
you can still order a signed copy from Tim and Mario will get it right off to you! 
Fabulousness I tell you...hehehe. 

Okay...on to the challenge.
This week it's all about Cabinet Card Pockets which is found on page 38.
I decided to do something similar to what Tim showed in CC3.
I decided I wanted to make a little something for my sister. 
She came along when I was 13 and I thought she was the best thing ever!
We have always had a special bond and it's only getting stronger. 
She is pregnant for the first time and I wanted her to know how I feel about her and "peanut."
He doesn't have a name just yet, so I gave him a nickname. 

I sanded the Cabinet Card lightly and blended on some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. 
I also used one of our techniques from a previous challenge on one of Tim's Found Relatives. 
Love that technique, hehehe. 
Then it was just time to layer and embellish. Pretty easy stuff really. 

 The Cabinet Card is a pocket so I inked up a tag with Broken China, Salty Ocean and a little Gathered Twigs.  Stamped a message for my little "peanut" and added a few more embellies.
And yes...I love them both with my heart and soul. 
Cannot wait to get my hands on him. 
Sorry I digress. 
It really is as easy as that. I hope you all will decide to play along...I can't wait to see what everyone does...they are always so different and it is spreading SO much inspiration throughout our community! 
You guys are rocking these challenges and I know all of us at the Curiosity Crew are loving seeing all the entries.  

So what are you waiting for...get busy...pull our your stash and see where it leads you! 
I want to say thank you to the fabulous Ms. Linda Ledbetter
She is an amazing person and puts her heart and soul into making this challenge as fun as it can be for all of us..the Curiosity Crew and YOU.  
And to the Curiosity Crew...you girls amaze me each week.  
I am so honored and blessed to be on this journey with you.  
Okay...I can't wait to see what they have done...
Till next time!

  13. Oh this is so sweet! What a lovely gift for your sister and "peanut." I had to laugh at the "peanut," because my granddaughter sent me a pic of her sonogram and I asked her when the "peanut" was due! Love this tag!

  17. Yvonne,
    Awesome use of the cabinet card, and I love the story that goes with it. It is so special to become an Aunt for the first time! I recently became a great Aunt for the 3rd time, so I am planning to make something for our newest addition to the family with one of the cabinet cards. You have provided much needed inspiration, as I was just at a loss as to where to begin. Thank you for all your great creations!

  20. You card is gorgeous Yvonne! I love the way the filmstrip continues as you pull up the tag, such a clever idea. The frame looks like a sandy wood and goes so well with the broken china. I also love the sentiment you've used inside, your sister will love it. My sister was born when I was 14, I just loved having a baby sister to fuss over. Congratulations on being an Auntie. :)

  23. I really love everything about this, but most of all how you used turquoise not only on the pull out but also on just some of the embellishments on the cover to pull it all together!
