Altered Tin and Blog Candy I won YAY!

Hi Everyone ~ Sorry I haven't posted anything, just been super busy and also enjoying the beautiful spring weather. Here is an altered tin that I made for a friend. Actually I made several and I can't believe I forgot to take pictures. AGHH! Hope you like the Friends tin.

Top and sides of tin are paper from my scrap box and the flowers are from the dollar bin at Joann's same with the bling.

This is the first side of the tin that folds out and the paper is Bo Bunny and the flower stamps are Stampin'UP {from my wonderful friend Norma at Pink Bling Crafter }, the other stamp is from the dollar bin. Don't you just love the dollar bins!!!!

The second fold out is done with Bo Bunny paper as well and the stamps are from Stamp'in Up and dollar bin.

I also won more blog candy YAY! from Laura at My Pretty Things, be sure to check out her blog she is very creative. Can you believe the candy that I won was a set of stamps {my choice which set} from Scrappy Moms and the stamps came in the mail today. WaHooo! I can't wait to use them.

On another note my blog candy from Olga at Three Butterfly Kisses also came today. THANKS Olga the embossing folders are absolutely gorgeous and the stamps are great. Be sure to stop by Olga's blog her projects are awesome, she is sooooo talented.

The other blog candy that I won was a 10 dollar gift certificate from ScrappinHens ! Be sure to visit their site they have some awesome digital designs. A BIG THANK YOU! to Paula for designing my blinkie.

Hope you all have had a great Saturday!

Happy Crafting!!!!

Hi Everyone ~ I can't believe I haven't posted anything in a while. I guess time has pass me by. Spring is my most favorite time of year and watching everything turning green has just taken up my time I guess. LOL!!!!! I thought it would be fun to make a Cow Congratulations card. Don't you just love the Create A Critter Cart?

The card is a 5 3/4 by 51/4 sort of an odd size, you can't waist your scraps. I used Create a Critter Card. The COW was made on my Gypsy with Lyrical Letters. The purple strip at the bottom border is a punch from EK Success and the arrow, congratulation and flowers that are on the border, were all from the dollar bin at JoAnns. The milk bottle in the inside of the card is also from Create A Critter. I just love using google eyes. Hope you all like the card. I will be posting later today Thanking the two wonderful and talented ladies for my BFB awards. It's garage sale time and I am going to hit the 5 that are going on this weekend. Sometimes I get lucky and find great scrapbooking items. LOL!

Happy Crafting!!
