Cheap as chips!

Holiday Challenge - DewDrop Craftz

"NOW.. for the new challenge.. and a bit of a change..

Due to the small numbers of participants of late I have decided to make the challenges 'month' long challenges. This will give people more time to take part.

The challenge that I am posting today though is going to be running until September 27th to allow for those who are on holiday or those who are soon to be taking a holiday, to have the chance to take part.

The challenge for this period is 'Cheap as Chips'..

To make a card, layout or other creation as cheaply as possible, not counting the card blank!! So.. I would love to see your creations.. and if you wish to join in on this one.. the prize is a bracelet as made and donated, by our very own DT member Jackie,a selection of stamped images in a lovely wallet again, made and donated by Jackie and a small selection of ribbons from myself. So, to be in with a chance of receiving this lovely prize, leave a link to your blog or details of where your creation can be seen in a comment to this post.(as blogged by Nikki - DewDrop)"

I've set the DewDrop challenge this time and as Nikki says, my theme is Cheap as Chips! I want to see what you can come up with for as little 'dosh' as this I mean using scaps from catalogues/leaflets/paper bags/magazine fact, just have a look at what you are about to put in the bin and see if you can use any of it on your project, upload it and give us a shout so we can come and take a look!

Here's my effort :)My background and topper were cut from the back of the rub on packs above, the bird,felt flower and gem, ribbon and rub on were all freebies from the front of craft my card has just cost me the card blank :)

This is the bracelet on offer this month
I'm not sure which folder is being offered as I made two but I'm sure it won't be too long before they are on the DewDrop Blog

Well, I've made it here - although the pc (or Mr Blogger)is on a go slow so I don't think I'll be getting very far. It's such a pity there are so few entries for the Dewdrop Craftz challenges. I do think a month long challenge will help though. I don't know if I can beat your cheap as chips card. It's great. I'll have to be very careful what I put in the bin for a while.
