It's Puzzling Me!

Treasure Hunt!

Here's the treasure I found while at yard sales last weekend:

A bag of over-size puzzle pieces - cost ten cents

I wanted a blank puzzle piece for my creation, so I simply peeled the slick picture image off of the chipboard puzzle piece.

Now, before you look at my card creation, let me ask you... have you ever had a card that looked better in your head than it did when you created it? Wellllllllllllllllllll... this is one of those times for me. LOL!

Here's a close-up of the image/puzzle piece. I paper pieced the image, except for coloring the little girl's face with a Copic marker.

Treasure Hunts + a Dose of Creativity = Fun!

Image: Me & My Big Ideas Kirsten

Designer Paper: Amscan Inc. and scraps from my file (for paper piecing)

  1. Cute, cute, cute!!! Love the idea with the puzzle piece!! I really need to stop at a couple yard sales this weekend and see if I can have this kind of fun!!!

  2. I love this - what a great card!! SO much fun happening on it!

  3. Now that's creative :) I have yet to play with my "nakie" chipboard, lol - I hoard it, then it just sits and waits for some inspiration! This gives me great ideas for kid's projects, too!
