The September challenge closes Friday, 4th October 2013 and Winners will be announced Monday, 7th October 2013 (yippee, on my Birthday) - Remember we are working on Aussie Time.

As I have mentioned previously, I have been slowly going through my stash and have been attempting to make some order of it all ................... remind me to post some pics of my efforts in organising my ever increasing stash of papers and cardstock ......... and embellishments, and bling ...... and the rest ;-)

Anyway .......... back to the halfway inspiration for UnstampaBelles.

I had come across some old cardstock - very thin, too thin to form the base of a card, but wonderful for using in my CraftROBO.

It is Mr Fixit's birthday today ;-)  and as I often do, I used him as a 'crash test dummy' for an idea for a card I have been working on.

His words were ................ "very clever, love!  that's not a photo is it?  you did that yourself!"  

well, yes, I did, I used our own remote as a reference, and designed it in Silhouette Studio, but I think it needs a bit of fine tuning before I can put it for sale in my ETSY store ;-)

Another thing on my 'need to make time for' list!

EDITED:   MK II available in my ETSY STORE
Remote Control Shaped Card

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Lollipop Ladies - photo inspiration 'smarties'  the buttons
Creative Cutting Challenge - Anything Goes
