I have something fun for today… I’m the Guest Designer for Quirky Craft’s Challenges #4 this week! Remember the Miss Anya Dressy I made a while back? Yep, that was the winner. So now I get to briefly join in with the team today and bring you this card using Cupid Ridley, from the sponsor Digital Delights.
The challenge theme is “Recycled Romance: use something in your creation that would normally be thrown away and not designed for crafting plus combine it with a Valentines theme.” On my card I used a broken zipper, a used cake-plate doily (shhh… I had to grab a fresh clean one to use! he he), and finally a gold foil candy wrapper (which really was from the trash can, go figure!).

Did you know? Susto is a cultural illness, specifically a “fright sickness” with strong psychological overtones. Susto comes from the Portuguese, and Spanish word for “fright” (i.e. sudden intense fear, as of something immediately threatening). The onset of the disease generally follows a sudden frightening experience. Research shows that knowledge of the existence of susto is a major contributing factor in improving the condition.
