Hey Dude

How fun is this? Well I wish I could take "sole" credit for it, but really I saw the idea posted in a tutorial from The Alley Way Stamps (view here)
Onto my project. When I saw these colors I did a little happy dance inside. I mean who doesn't love these colors together right? I knew I wanted to make a fun little project (not a card) so this is what I came up with. Trying to incorporate it into PS Spark Challenge & 10 Minute Craft Dash, I knew I had to get all my supplies ready. I drew out my design, got everything together, set the timer and...
9 minutes 27 seconds later I had this little guy. I really LOVE how it turned out! Don't look to closely, I had a little "non-strait" stitching, but what do you expect for under 10 minutes? lol
My little sour cream container would be perfect to hold a fun treat for a birthday boy. I would imagine this would be adorable for a little "on top of present" get well, you rock, or just because.
I also stamped some twill ribbon with the same stamp sets. 
Thanks for stopping by!
My project took me 9 minuets 27 seconds 

Splash a little color on someones life today! -AJ

  11. Your coloring on this is perfection! Thank you so much for playing along with us over at the 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge!

  12. Hi Anna ~ Just a quick 'hello' and a note to say I hope you're playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARK challenge or the next TAWS. I'm missing your creative 'sparkles' and 'dazzles.' I missed the TAWS deadline because I thought it was on March 1 (which I figured was unusual because the submissions usually close on Thursday). Turns out I was right! I'm still planning to post my "contender' card, and another one I missed for the A Blog Named Hero Challenge. That card isn't exactly 'vintage-shabby-chic' in 'style', even though the paper is. I really need to organize my 'challenge calendar' better!
    Fingers crossed all is well. Oh yes - I'm trying to decide on some TAWS and PS stamps (my Chubby Chums and Zoo Crew arrived!: what are your 'top two' recommendations for each? I can't decide; just want them ALLLLLLL! Looking forward to *chatting* with you soon!
