I've Got a Hammer!

It's Thursday - Time for Another Treasure Hunt Creation!
Remember, every week I go to yard sales and search for something to use in creating a card.

This past week's search produced the following purchase:


A fun book - cost 10 cents


And here is my creation:


Yes, you guessed it! The designer paper on this card is actually a page out of the book I found on my treasure hunt. (tee hee)


Here's a closer view:


Aren't those screw-head brads I used fun?!?!?


Here's a close-up of the adorable image:



The image I used is a Karen's Doodles digi image called Mr Fix It Grandpa. He's adorable. Karen's Doodles has lots and lots of wonderful images... so go check them out! There's also a cute FREEBIE available


I hope you like my Treasure Hunt creation! These are such fun to do... they stretch me to think outside my paper-crafting box.
Tomorrow the hunt begins again!

Oh my goodness...how clever. I love the image and I also love the way you used the book page to tie it all together.. I'm in awe of how you manage to take garage sale items and make such cute cards....
