What? No card?

If you are looking for candy winners please scroll down to my previous post...

Hello friends!

Yep, I wasn't lyin'... I've got no card to share with you today. And that's because the Monday Mania challenge hosted by Kim Yu this week is all about recycling a 3D object. :)
Now I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am just not much of a 3D kind of gal... you take me away from my cards and my mojo doesn't know quite what to do. Luckily I had Kim there to help me out with ideas and as soon as she mentioned recycling an old Prima container the light bulb went off because I have plenty of those hanging around, LOL! I knew that I wanted to make a special little gift container using Cheeky Beauty and when I found this oooooold K&Co rose paper the two just came together and I suddenly saw her as a rosebud princess ruling over all the other flowers in the garden... LOVE it! Don't be surprised if you see a matching card very soon playing up that whole idea. :)

Well that's it from me today, hope your week is off to a lovely start and that you get a chance to join us at CA&Friends for some 3D fun!
