For this challenge make a card for one of life's milestones by personalizing the card with something non craft related. My card uses want ads from an old newspaper. I have seen beautiful graduation cards made from the student's graduation announcement. I have used pages from mini calendars for birthday cards. Use company letterhead for a retirement card. How about a family photo for a mother's day card. I can't wait to see what you come up with. You have until midnight on Tuesday, May16 to post a card to be included in a random drawing for a small prize from me.

Koren, love your sample card. What a wonderful idea to use want ads! And I am going to make note of your suggestions. Since I love upcycling, you are speaking my language!

Our grand-niece graduates from High School in a few weeks. Was great fun to use her announcement to make this card.

Kathy, your niece will LOVE it!

On Sunday I was looking through the paper at all the special announcements...and found out that Alexandria (daughter #2) got on the Seattle Pacific University's DEAN LIST! The little snot NEVER said a word to me! So for my card I copied the newspaper (the original will go in her scrapbook) and made a CONGRATS card for her...
