Purses, Sugar, and a few Germs...
Happy Birthday to the Octopode Factory Blog - one year of amazing creations with the very amazing Octopode images! Of course, the challenge is all about Birthdays. I made some cute little purses for a friend at work who love, love, loves purses. She also loves Alabama Football and the color red. I am going to fill them with chocolate kisses - I know she will love them. I found the purse template at Brittney's Budget Crafts. The Keep Calm and Carry On circle is from The Octopode Factory - it was a free gift by Lily a few weeks ago, and I love it! Papers are from SU! and Hobby Lobby.
This card is for the Dilly Beans Challenge this week which is about Sugar. It is also for the Fresh Brewed Designs Blog challenge (Anything Goes - FBD100). I saw the coolest picture on Pinterest (actually it was pinned or repinned by my friend Carol - thanks Carol) - you can see it here. I found it last night and it seemed to work perfectly with the Dilly Beans Challenge; plus I needed a really special Thank You card for the photographer that did Allie's Senior Pictures - just wait to you see them (amazing stuff). The papers are from Hobby Lobby and most the flowers were stolen out of various flower arrangements in my house (shhhh...don't tell my DH)and my flower stash).
Lastly, I thought I would share with you an idea that has been bumping around in my head since the Dude Time Doodles challenge was posted this week. My oldest daughter is not into cleaning, and I kid her all the time about the germs living in her bathroom. So this this Johnny on the spot image just seemed to scream for some germs and a few googly eyes (since germs are alive - scary stuff). I printed out the image three times and added some texture with a snow writer and some paint pens. Isn't this soooo fun?
Have to run get a Father's Day present for Pop - I don't know how this day snuck up on me like this!!!
Hugz and hope your day is wonderful!
