This challenge has to be linked up within an hour of it's appearance - We've had 3 hours for most, 2 hours for the last one, an now only an hour.
With the pressure on - I did in 15 mins :) Super quick card yes, but the meaning will be appreciated.
Here is my card along with the inspiration - My daughter's stuffy - Snowy :)
My daughter got a hole in her stuffy a couple weeks ago & asked me to fix it, so it's been sitting on my craft desk for little while. I pick her up tomorrow from here two weeks away & will have her stuffy all sewed up for her, along with a little card. I know it's not really cold outside, but my life's been a little empty the past couple of weeks & she will bring me warmth tomorrow.
I have really enjoyed playing along with everyone today! It's been so nice getting little comments on my blog & your kind words have brought me great joy!
Happy Anniversary to Pink By Design - look forward to many more years!
I wanted to create something fun this time - without paper, that almost worked until it came time to stamp. I bought some cute wood tags from Pick your Plum - They are super cute & I want to make lots of Christmas tags this year, but the ink I have bleeds into the wood & looks terrible. If you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know - I'd really appreciate it!
So here is my project...
I used Stampin Up! buttons & made a little Christmas tree.
This is the back side - I covered it in paper & inked & stamped in Wasabi - my favorite Stampin Up! green!
The twine is a combo of Twisted Lime - & Red is from Pick Your Plum
The next challenge is to make & use a tag. I pulled out my tags, bags, boxes & more 2 cart & cut a box &three different sized tags. I'm not great at guessing what sizes I need for things. Here is the project I came up with.
I pulled out my stash of pre-made die cuts & found these little apples.
They would be perfect for this little gable box!
I used some glossy accents on the leaves & some sparkle spritz from Stampin Up! - not sure of the technical name.
This little sentiment is from Our Teachers - PBD
Berry Red - Trendy Twine
I'll send this for my little girls first day of fourth grade in a few weeks - for her teacher who has taught her Kindergarten, grade 3, and will be her teacher for grade 4 too :)
PS - It won't have an apple, it'll be filled with chocolates!!
I must admit - I see sketches online everywhere, all the time, but I have never used one for inspiration, well until today :)
Here is the sketch that we were to use to create a project with. As soon as I saw it, I knew these stamps would be perfect!! With a little searching though some paper, I found the perfect papers to use!

Today Pink by Design is celebrating their 2nd anniversary! I am playing along in the challenges & once I've completed all the projects in the time frame allotted, I will receive a free stamp set!!! How cool is that!!!
So here is my first project, home decor :)
I started with a blank 12"x12" canvas - I've never stamped on canvas & thought it'd be fun to try.
Not quite as easy as I had thought it would be, but with a little patience, I think it turned out okay.
I know for next time to be sure my stamp is really in place before try to move the canvas to rub the other side!
I used July SOTM (stamp of the month) - Capture life to make a project for my 8yr old daughter. This summer lots of exciting things are taking place - she will be a flower girl for one last time in my sister's wedding party :) She has been away for two weeks & I'm sure she has captured some great moments -
I had some button push pins that I thought just added to the project!
One thing I did learn after stapling the ribbon on, was that I should've let the ink dry a little more - oops:)
I hope she loves it & will use it to showcase some of her photos!
This past weekend I was able to travel up to my sister's house & hang out with some super fun girls. We went for dinner at Earls', 10 pin Bowling at Ed's, and then finished of the night meeting up with the boys at her in-laws for a fire. It was a great night!
I had been bugging her that I was going to make her something... 'ALL ABOUT ME', so when I came across this tumbler, I knew I had to buy it & exactly what it was going to say!
I know my pictures are never great, I need to get better at that, but I am hoping you get the idea :)
ME! & the heart on the back glow in the dark!!!
I bought some iron on vinyl (the glow in the dark vinyl was from here too) from Pick Your Plum - a great daily deal site for all things crafty!
It's pink & I placed a little gem above the i. You can't really tell how cute it is. I never got a picture of her wearing the shirt, I took picks with her camera all night.... yep, I'm a good sister :)
I couldn't leave the guests out now could I???
NO - I made them little treat bags to take home!
These little stamps are from Jaded Blossom - They are 3/4" circle & fit perfectly on the bottom of Hershey Kisses - I can't wait to find other ways to use these super cute stamps!
Boy oh boy, has it been a very busy few weeks in my house. The beginning of summer has arrived & with it the Calgary Stampede!! We headed down to the grounds last Sunday. It was an extremely hot day! We had a great time, my Dad & step-mom came down to attend it with us. It was the 100th anniversary this year. In my opinion, not much different than most other years, but I don't attend annually either. It breaks my pocket book & I find it to be much more enjoyable to only attend every few years!
We went to the fireworks last night, they were incredible! There were even some red 100 fireworks in the mix! Awesome presentation!
My youngest is spending the week between her auntie's houses & I miss her like crazy already!! I'm sure she's having a blast. She is attending her Auntie's other bridal shower this afternoon. I'm sure it will be a great time!
My oldest is getting ready for a week of video game camp, where he will learn to create his own online game. He's so excited! I should make mention that at the end of his school year, he received 6, yes 6 awards. 3 Of which he got to walk across the stage in front of the whole school to receive! Yep, I am one proud Momma!!
My sister's stagette is coming up on Saturday. I had a few things to get ready, well made for her. I got that all done this morning. Of course I can't post any pics yet, she can't see anything before she gets to wear them ;)
Just thought I should check in & let you know I haven't forgotten about my blog, just had lots of other stuff on the go. Once the wedding is over & school is in again, I know life will still be busy, just a more comfortable busy I hope :)
