I've got one card and one project for today's post. First up is the Muse Challenge. Don't you just love this challenge? Every week, the DT has an amazing Muse, and I swear, all the entries are fantastic. Do take the time to check it out...if you haven't already! : ) Now. This week's Muse is the lovely and talented Laurie Willison. Her cards are always gorgeous, and this one is no exception:
For my card, I went with a fairly literal interpretation of Laurie's card. Fairly. Large plain panel, and ampersand, and stripes.
Using my Cameo, I cut three ampersands and stacked them. The "peace" and "love" are from Lawn Fawn. Random red and green cardstock scraps, and the stripes are from AC. Red VersaMark ink, and I covered the ampersand with Wink of Stella. EZPZ. Or as Darnell would say: QACAS.
Next up is my project for the Lawnscaping Challenge #71. We are to make a project using a tag or a treat bag. I made both. I have to tell you that LF stamps are so nice. Every time I break them out, they stamp perfectly. And it's always fun playing in the Lawnscaping challenges. This treat bag is full of peanut butter cups for my DH. He loves little treats, and on Christmas morning, he'll find this on his desk in the family room. He'll be delighted with this!
And here's what I made:
First, it has polka dots. How fun are they??!! And next it has glittery ribbon. The very last little bitty bit of it. *sniff-sniff*. But don't overlook the jingle bells...I love jingle bells. Even typing the word "jingle" is fun! I've used one of my favorite LF stamp sets, Winter Gifts, and its matching die. Black SU ink, and colored with ProMarkers. I tore the legs off (gee...doesn't that sound cruel???) a large brad, and popped up the cap. IRL it matches the Reminisce polka dot paper. I cut the treat bag with my Cameo...turned out cute and DH will find this amusing. Well, that's it. Heading back to the mess I left, and am going to hopefully start work on another project. BTW.... don't forget to watch for the Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop. It's coming up December 13th. Hope to see you there!! Happy dances everyone.
