Speaking of sparks and 'hot' things (oops..inside voice coming out) do you remember MacGyver, from 'back-in-the day'? The man who could make 'anything' out of essentially nothing? Yes, I grew up watching MacGyver (and The Partridge Family...and Get Smart...and Gilligan's Island...love them all!!), so you can imagine my delight when I discovered what a team of brilliant, talented designers had come up with: AAA Cards: The MacGyver Challenge
The first part of the challenge: visit the designers' blogs, and 'find' precisely what Mr.
Here's the challenge overview....
The results of my 'hunt and find' journey follow - and let me tell you: too. much. fun!!
Victoria shared a wonderful tutorial on making an enameled embellishment, resulting in this darling card
and an item for my 'search'
Angela created a stunning card and note cards gift set:
Jane dazzled us with a trio of lovely water-colour cards
and a second item on the MacGyver list:
Julia's shadow resist butterfly card is nothing short of swoon-inducing:
Item #3 found here, too
Hannelie's sympathy card is utterly gorgeous...
Linda's card is a brilliant, fun, fresh showcase of the MacGyver challenge
and the locale of Item #4:
Vicki dazzled and delighted with her version of the challenge:
and Item #5:
Of course, finding the 'goods' wasn't the end. The next part: to feature those newly found items, a la the inspiration of Linda and Vicki, our 'version' of a card/project using: a hole, corrugated card-board, a stamp, string and plastic.
A challenge that I *had* to tackle...
Wondering what I made? Head over to my next post....
And to the AAA Cards Team: thank you for creating this 'stretch our creativity challenge (and the MacGyver throwback was pretty awesome too!)
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!!
