Variety is the SPICE of #Cre8time... with a New Five Challenge at Anything But a Card Challenges

Good Morning Everyone! It's the last weekend in August... and also Labor Day Weekend in the U.S. which is considered the last weekend of summer as kids are heading back-to-school. Thanks so much for all of the wonderful creations shared for the REPEATING Motifs Challenge No. 38... please CLICK HERE to see all of the submissions.

ALSO we are adding to our team here at Anything But a Card Challenges... CLICK HERE to view our DT call which closes Sept. 13th. We encourage you to apply! ABAC has no sponsors + no expectations + no having to use particular stuff! No Rules and a variety of themes and possible makes = doing projects you REALLY want to do! We are all about CREATING and SHARING... ABAC is all inclusive – and all levels of expertise are welcome too. If you love to create everything under the sun that is NOT CARDS... throw your hat in and apply!

The moon and stars have aligned to give us an EXTRA Sunday this month which messes up our 3 +1 system of challenges. Today is another FIFTH SUNDAY! This is an oddity in the calendar that is happening several times in 2014... SO we have added this fun MINI-Challenge today here at Anything But a Card Challenges!!! Are you ready to play and have some fun??!

The Fifth Sunday Challenge... "USE FIVE"!! Use the number 5 or five items, five colors, five words... what ever FIVE represents to you. For those who want to go a little more literal - here's the definition, too! Loads of inspiration could be had over at Wikipedia's page for 5 (number).

* * * * * * * * * * * * 
five (faɪv)
1. a cardinal number, four plus one.
2. a symbol for this number, as 5 or V.
3. a set of this many persons or things.
4. a five-dollar bill.
5. amounting to five in number.
[before 1000; Middle English; Old English fīf; c. Old Frisian, Old Saxon fīf, Old High German fimf, finf, Old Norse fimm, Gothic fimf, Latin quīnque, Greek pénte, Skt pancha]

Please share any current project you have created and JUST REMEMBER... create anything EXCEPT a card for this challenge. Please mention and LINK BACK to this challenge. ALSO - Please new projects only {no-backlinking}. :)

**A REMINDER** This Mini-Challenge will go through midnight September 6th giving you 7 days to play along and ENJOY the creative process! Next Sunday will start a brand new 3 week challenge.

Let's see what our DT has created!!

Please click on the designers' name to visit their blog. We hope you’ll take a minute to go see their work up close... and as long as you’re there – please leave them a little love!

Sometimes designs get your creative revving. I owned 3 of the Bloom Stamps. Now there are 5! What's exciting is there are 5 more on the way...with stencils! Come on over to my blog for more details.

I decided to take five distress inks - literally at random and was amazed with the result. If you want to see which ones I used then hop on over to my blog!

I've used 5 photos of one very fidgety (definitely had a disorder!!... maybe AD/HD???)) Tawny Frogmouth juvie... who'd thought they could be so expressive! Check out what went on behind the photos for the tag,  on my blog.

Regular followers of my blog will know that I am loving making little houses right now, so it was a no brainer for this month's 5 challenge - five house in five different colours! Please visit my blog for more details!

FIVE... a fun challenge indeed! A limited amount of supplies and some fun stamps for some fun ATC makes. Please visit my blog to get all the details!
