Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co.

I got this "clip" at Michael's...had a 50% off coupon, so I got it for $1.50!!!   I found some vellum "zebra" at my LSS and decided to make a note holder.  I took a 5x5 piece of cork and used red line tape to add the vellum which covers a piece of ivory cardstock.  Used the awesome tree and zebra from "Wild and Free" and was done in no time at all.

Here's one I did for the WT challenge on SCS last week:

 Just your basic card....the challenge was to use stitching - real or faux....mine is faux.  I used chalks to color the sky and make my waterhole.  I called it "The Waterhole".  Can't you imagine the animals starting to come for an early morning drink!

And here's the one I did for MFP's blog for this hop:

 I've seen some of the cards the other design team members have made and they just get better and better!  Wonderful set; love it.

Please join in on the FOSTV challenges every week.  You can find them at MFP Speedy TV

Your cards are very nice, Vicky -- but that note holder is just super! What a clever idea!!! That big clip is too cool.

Benzi said...

All super cards, Vicky. That big zebra clip is just the coolest. I especially like the 'watering hole' card. Yes, I can imagine all the animals gathering for a big drink of cool water. For some reason, I thinking two by two like the Ark. :-)

What a neat note holder! Your second card is really fabulous with the faux stitching and it is just a beautiful scene. The third card is neat and I like your sponging.

Wild about this stamp set. Wonderful creations. Like your waterhole. On my bucket list is to go on an African Safari. I used Be Wild & Free for the Simple Salutations Ch#3 Tree and used 2 inks to color it.
