The challenge this week at For Fun is:  Anything Plus- a paper clip or safety pin - can be a funky shape clip or a colored or regular safety pin - no stick pins please.

I chose to use 3 large white paper clips to create a fence with flowers. Not sure if you can tell those are paper clips or not but I can promise you they are.. Since I'm not motived by diaper pens anymore this was the only thing I could come up with and I think it turned out okay. What do you think?

DP is Basic Grey, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Flower Soft was used for the grass around the fence and for her bouquet.  MS Lattic punch was used behind the  fence to give it a little added zip. The image is Susan by Elizabeth Bell and from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, she is colored with Copics.  I added stickles in Cinnamon and Red to give her top and slacks a little bling.  Just got to get something shiny on those cards.........lol

Hope you all are enjoying your summer and your weather is better than here. It's sweltering hot and humid and it's rained everyday or night for I don't know how long.  We've been plagued by power outages off and on so not much crafting or visiting has been going on because I don't blog or even have the computer on during storms..... Real pansie I am.......lol

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. I hope you will be able to play along with us this week at For Fun cause we'd sure like to see your wonderful creations. I'll be by to visit soon and please accept my apology for not getting by sooner.
