Flea Market Flip - #1

I don't like to get in a rut. Instead, I am a person who likes change (did I hear a collective gasp?). To help with that, I decided to do Quarterly Series (I often refer to these as "Personal Challenges") in 2019. The first three months I used the same stamp set in 7 different ways on 7 different cards, which actually ended up being 8 cards.

What will I do this quarter?

My Bi-Weekly 
Flea Market Flip

If you were around my blog a number of years ago, I used to do what I called "Treasure Hunt" posts. I'd find something that wasn't intended for card-making at yard sales, thrift stores, and such - and I'd use that item on a card. This Flea Market Flip is basically the same idea, just a new name.

Here's what I found:

Cost: $1
Found at a local thrift store

I thought the crosses would make perfect charm embellishments for cards.

Here's a closeup:

Here's a wee peek at the inside:

And for my dollar investment, I have three more cross charms to use at some point in the future.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Stamp: PrintWorks John 3:16 stamped with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink

Die: Sizzix Mini Globe

Paper: Recollections Black and SU Emerald Envy CS and Paper Pizazz Green Salt DP

Embellishments: Offray and Oriental Trading Ribbons and Brads from unknown vendors
