Kiwi Kiss & Pink Pirouette

Here are 2 of our new colors to inspire your weekend creativity.  Since I don't have the In Colors ink pads, I used Pretty in Pink and Old Olive along with Basic Brown for the stamping.  A new checkbook cover makes me want to go out and use it!  That may not be a good thing, oops!

Gift giving

I love giving gifts, but sometimes wrapping  or packaging a gift is just as fun as giving the gift.  Here is a pop top can that I decorated.  Use a saftey can opener and take the bottom off the can.  Empty the contents and clean out the can.  I filled the can with strips of designer paper crimped, for a fun surprise inside.  Using tacky craft glue, I glued the bottom back on after inserting the gift.
When giving this gift, the reciever will have fun popping the top off to discover the fun inside!
