365 Cards - #170 - Double Duty & #171 - Tuesday's Trio

I am playing catch up over at 365 Cards so for day 170 it was Double Duty which meant that you had to make a card that could double up as something else like a bookmark, place card or pocket card but could not be a gift card or money card. So I chose to do a Post It Note Organiser. It looks like a card from the outside and inside it has two different sized post it note pads, a pen and a pocket on the left hand side. The pen has been matched using the same SU Designer paper as the pocket and the background on the front of the card.

This is the inside of the card/organiser.


On day 171 it was Tuesday's Trios and we had to incorporate a triangle, buttons and a sticker.

So you can see that I made my whole card into a triangle, there are three buttons down on the lower right hand side of the card, and the sticker is above the friends sentiment. Challenge met! Okay for me there will be another day coming up soon as it usually comes into my blog at about 3.30p-4p because we are 15 hours ahead of you in the USA. So I will get going and see you all again later on.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Michelle, fabulous job on both cards I especially like the triangle one. I tried to figure out how to do the shaped card and ended up with a total mess not a triangle.

What a fabulous organiser, must try and remember that, very clever. Unfortunately the triangle hasn't loaded so will try and look later. Having a few probs with Blogger.
