Monday, Monday...

and what a Monday it is. Finally a day off! ;)

Not only that but there is also a fun Monday Mania challenge issued by 1LUVNMAMA that really had me stepping outside my comfort zone. This week Mama wants us all to create a 3D gift set and matching card. I highly recommend that you head on over to CA&Friends and/or Mama's blog to see what she has made for her inspiration... O-M-G! I am still in complete awe of her paper crafting skills, I swear there's nothing this talented crafter can't build out of just cardstock and pretty papers! :)

Now for me, the card part is no problemo but I honestly don't do much 3D work, so I really had to put my thinking cap on. Hmmm... what would be a fun gift to make using my stamps? Why not pull out the old Badge-a-minit and whip up some fun pieces of flair (any other Office Space fans out there? LOL)
So that's just what I did and I wanted to use some of the very first TGF stamps that I ever bought... the three little fairies; Tink, Eva and Chloe. I don't know if they technically count for Club Anya, especially since I don't think they are even in the store anymore (sadness), but I just had to show them some love. Plus I'm secretly hoping that Marie will eventually expand this line with at least three more of these cuties... hint, hint, wink, wink, fingers crossed! ;)
Then I simply made a quick little box with an acetate cover that slides on and off and the matching card. It's no where near as impressive as Mama's but I am A-Okay with that! :)

Alrighty, it's time for me to go enjoy the day... hope yours is lovely too!

When I read your "flair" comment, I started cracking up. I don't like talking about my flair ;0)

This set is just GORGEOUS! The buttons are a great idea and the color scheme is beautiful. The fairies were perfect for this, and you need to give yourself more credit, your 3-D work is wonderful!
