Olivia Lunch Tin

I made this lunch box tin for the sweet 'n sassy stamps yahoo group challenge. The challenge was to decorate a lunch box easy enough luckily I had this one just layin' around. I decorated this one with some paper but I can't remember who makes it I think I bought it a Robert's crafts and they carry a lot of Provo craft stuff so I think that's what it is but I lost the cover to the paper pad so I'm not positive sorry. I painted the top with brown acrylic paint and adhered ribbon around it the light tan ribbon is another ribbon I don't know what brand it is it was given to me about 2 years ago. The chocolate ribbon is ctmh. Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

First off I wanted to let you know for those that were wondering how I did the bubbles on my last post I edited it and posted the instructions here is a link to it.

My high hope stamps came in the mail recently and I just had to ink them up. I sat down and stamped at least 6 or more of each image so I have plenty to color and make cards with your probably going to get sick and tired of seeing the same images so I'll try to mix it up but I'm not going to promise anything. Ok now to my card I made a real simple card I used mostly ctmh product on my card except the white cs and image.
I keep apologizing for short posts but I'm going to try to stop apologizing because most of my post are short I'm not usually a talker and it's hard for me to come up with stuff to write, I hope that's ok with everyone. Have a great day.

What I used
stamps-group hug bears(high hope stamps), friendship word puzzle(ctmh)
ink-black(palette), chocolate(ctmh)
dp-creative basics boom-di-ada(ctmh)
cs-olive, hollyhock(ctmh), white(gp)
embellishments-ribbon chocolate(ctmh)

Acetate birthday card

I've been wanting to make an acetate card for a long time I just didn't have white stazon ink then last week I saw this card (the second one in her post) and I realized I didn't need ink I could just use paper. I know mine is nowhere near as gorgeous as hers but that where I got the idea. I made this card for my sisters birthday last week. I had a hard time taking a picture of this card I kept getting a glare and the acetate is hard to see but I did my best. I loved making this card and plan on making a lot more they really look stunning and it's fairly easy to make.

Here is another view of the card

Sending Sunshine and Smiles

It's been awhile since I use my Hanna stamps so I decided to ink up rain day Hanna and I really loved the way this card turned out. I used my SU circle punches and I even used some SU paper I've been hording I still only used a tiny bit of it I'm still hording it, lol. I then used my star struck ctmh stamp set and stamped around the circles the circles with dots around them I used my ctmh sweet leaf marker and hand did them.

I also made this card for Chrissy's belli challenge # 20 her challenge was to use vellum or mulberry paper. I wasn't planning on using vellum but when my card was almost done I wanted to use a sentiment but I didn't want to cover up my circles so then it clicked and I remembered Chrissy's challenge so I stamped the sentiment from Gretchen (snss) on vellum and their you have it. Oh and the green paper is on dimensionals anyways, I think it looked really cool I hope everyone else likes it too.

For those of you that care I am feeling much better I had chills and body aches all day yesterday and I thought I was getting the cold my kids have then this morning I woke up just fine so who knows what I had I'm just happy to be feeling better. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.

I rolled a piece of copy paper for the diploma and tied it with waxy flax.I just had to add some bling cuz I didn't want it to look to masculine.
