Here is my card, I wanted to use colors I don't usually use -



I also used this fun sketch for a card challenge (use a shamrock on a card, I made one out of old book pages I die cut and Glimmer Misted) at Citrus Tree Studio's Going Green Crop -

I made a few projects during the SUPER fun crop at Citrus Tree Studio this weekend! It goes until Monday March 15 at noon EDT, so check it out. Besides the shamrock card I posted above, I also made a card with the word Love in springy colors -



Next I made a card using repurposed packaging (besides using some Prima packaging, you can see some of the other packaging in the pic, I used part of a rootbeer bottle carrier, I have been saving that for something he he) -



Next is a spring banner I made for another challenge at the oh-so-fabulous Citrus Tree Studio (sorry the pics aren't the greatest)-







I also packaged up the flowers that are going postal the first of the week for the last blog candy prize. This week I also worked on the project I will share with you in a few weeks during the Zutter Zisters blog hop. I love it, I am using lots of artsy techniques and different things on it. I will post a little tutorial during the blog post for you all too, can't tell you what it is on, it is a surprise, but I think you will like it. There will of course be additional blog candy, WOOOOO HOOOOOO! Gotta love giving away goodies. At least I do! ;) Anyway, I will post pics of the project I have been working on during the blog hop. It is a gift for a friend's lovely daughter, I hope she likes it!

Speaking of blog posts and tutorials, have you checked out the Bind It All Blog? I have a tutorial coming up on how I made this fun little repurposed toilet paper roll mini -



I'd love it if you stopped by and said hello. Last month I did several blog posts, one on creating a card with OWires, one on making a candy box with OWires. There are lots of tutorials and info posted by the other DT members too, so take a peek! There will be info on the Zutter Zisters Blog Hop coming soon too.

Of course I had to make a few more flowers this week, I couldn't help myself. :) I used fabric, boatloads of Glimmer Mist again, and other things. Here are a couple pics -

OK, tomorrow is a very busy day at work, so I better get a few things done tonight. Hope you all have a fabulous and happy week. Happy creating! ~ Pam

oooooohhhhhhlalalalala!!! Loving the flowers girl!!!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
