For this hop I made two projects. I have been in a really festive mood lately since the holidays are fast approaching. Here is project #1:
What is so funny about this one is that it started as a challenge from my friend Ellen (aka Cardmonkey). She game me two candy tubes and challenged me to do something with them. Well, I used one here and one for my friend Nicole's Fierce, Fabulous and Forty Blog Hop (see that post HERE). The tag is a stamp set from Stampin' Up called Tag Alongs. I colored the stamp with my Crayola markers and stamped away. I tried to get mini M&M's but they did not have any. I tried Almond Joy pieces and they did not fit
so I tool my Candi paper buttons I received from a friend and filled the tube. Necessity is the mother of invention as they say.
For my second project, I used the same stamp set and made some gift tags. There are some new babies here and there are always birthdays and anniversaries. So I used my Stampin' Up markers and colored the stamps. I used my Stampin' Up punches to round or punch the corners.
Thanks to Ashley for having me and now I send you off to Lynda. Until next time....
