Hi everyone! Well this weeks Bloggers Challenge was to recycle something. Earlier this week I had a wonderful lunch....pork and beans! Well this is my recycled can from that wonderful lunch! I am planning to use it for a Holiday treat container. I intend to either put some fresh cookies or candy sticks in a cellophane bag to complete the gift!
I used copic markers to color the edges of the can that show and to color the pull top that I used for the top of the lid. I embossed my papers and used some Brilliance Moonlight White to highlight both the dots and the lines that were embossed. The phrase I used was from a stamp set from The Angel Company. Below is a picture were you can see the lid to the container, I cut some circles and punched some scalloped circles to decorate the top a little!
I hope you all enjoyed the project and take a few minutes to check out the wonderful projects that the other creative members of Bloggers Challenge have recycled!

Wow, another week has come and gone! Here is my card for this week's Blogger Challenge! This week we had to work with a group of colors. The colors for this week were black, white and orange. I spent most of the day attempting to use a cool technique from Technique Junkies, it was reverse soot stamping. I attempted to get this technique to work and came to the conclusion that I need to use a cheap candle. I only had Yankee Candles and I could not get soot to form on my paper!! Next time I go out, I will buy some cheap candles that burn dirty!
Today we celebrate a special person!! Today is my daughter's best friend's birthday! Above is the card that I made for Beth to give to Wendi! I am hoping that she has a wonderful Birthday!
I used my new Cricut Imagine to create this card!! The background paper and the scalloped edged paper is some of the amazing papers you can print and cut with the Imagine! Being the rubber stamper that I am, I had to get some stamping included in the card!! I hope she will enjoy the card! Happy Birthday!!
