All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge ~ Use Newsprint or a Book Page


Time for my favorite challenge!   This week, we were to use newsprint or a book page on our card.   All I can say is CHALLENGE is the absolute correct term here.    I was really stumped … until I looked at the C.C. Designs images I had and saw this adorable Nurse Nora.   It all made perfect sense after that!   🙂    (TG!)

Here’s the full — VERY BRIGHT — card



Don’t ya just love her shiny red boots??!!  

I decided to make a card for someone (seems like EVERYONE at this time of year) who is suffering from a cold/flu bug.   I included an article from the internet on “How to Care for a Cold“.    The DP used is from the Basic Grey June Bug 6×6 paper pad ~ I thought the center print looked just like a warm, cozy quilt ~ Exactly what is needed when suffering from a cold or flu!

Here’s a closeup of a portion of the article …   I love the first item “Eat chicken soup“!   



TWO new items of interest!     Nurse Nora’s wings were painted with a new SMOOCH paint product.  You know I LOVE Smooch paint!    It’s called  Smooch Illuminate Pearlized Top Coat, and  YES, I love it!   It’s similar to shimmerz paint, but doesn’t leave that dark glitter appearance.   The glitter is an iridescent combo of pinks and greens – VERY cool IRL.     

AND, I’ve finally used my Nellie Snellen flower punches/embossers (?)  for this card!   Yes, I love them too!   🙂       Tab from 7KCF has just added this NEW set to the store, now up for preorder!

Be sure to take a peek at all the cards for this challenge from the awesome ATS Wednesday Challenge Design Team.    There is a prize up for grabs, if you join us — all the details can be found here.

Happy Wednesday …   we’re getting closer!

  1. If I were sick, I know I would feel much better after receiving this bright and cheerful card! I always have to stare at your amazing coloring(and of course look at the colors you used…thank you!) Such creative to add the special note on colds too. I have never used smooch…how does it differ from radiant pearls or H2O’s? Looks like fun to use. Great post today girlie!
