ill let my daycare boy" bug" pick out a winner from his craftyhat. yeah, for some reason he likes to wear his winter hat all day and use it when its decision making time . im glad he likes to write because some days this is really a task ;) i cant complain, i was the one that started this when teaching him to write words. i wanted to keep it fun and not a chore :)

so.. be sure to leave me your email info ok :)

for the challenge i made two projects.
first a card
for this i used kraft cardstock and sprayed it with some homemade glitzyspritz (tim holtz spun sugar) it looks like a big blotch from the photo but in the real that doesnt show up like that thank goodness ;) . i just handcut the pennant and added a doily ( im on a huge doily and ribbon thing for now) some hearts and pearls and button plus heart pin.
then i stamped on this simple but sweet sentiment from the with love set of stephanies.

my second project is a cardboard book trinket holder i found at hobby lobby.
i painted it with some acrylic paints and covered the front with paper and embellished.
here it is lieing down

pretty heart eh :) i used my cricut and happily ever after cartridge for it.
i inked and scrunched a paper doily and attached it but kind of scrunched like in the real it looks like a crocheted doily which is the look i was going for.
ooooooh and see that sweet little angel pin isnt she just fab! jessica from pinque peacock whipped this darling up for me! make sure you check out her beautiful pins!
hard to see but i drew in some lines with a brown pen to look like pages. i may add some gold pen to it also im still up in the air with that.

thanks so much for checking out my "shtuff" youre sweet comments always make me smile, thank you so very much for that :) remember, always smile at someone or give them a kind word it may be the only ones they get that day :) now go have some fun finsihing hopping along with us! :) xxxshelly
