Helloooooo there! I know, I have once again been missing in action, but I am here today - that is all that matters, right?? I know most of you know how it is to work a good ole 9-5 day job then have to come home and take care of the house too before you can have fun in your craft room right? I usually have time on the weekends to "play" but I have been watching my grandson a little more than usual the last couple of weeks, so he won over my coming up stairs to play! But today, I am soooooo glad I finally got a few hours to myself to play, and play I did!
A few weeks ago I had won a stamp of my choice from The Cat's Pajamas - I LOVE their items. Are you familiar with them? If not, you should definitely go check them out! Anyhoo, when I won I selected one of their cute little penguin stamps called "Good Friends" so that is the set I pulled out today to play with. Before I got started, I went over to The Cat's Pajamas blog here to see what their challenge of the week was. This week it was to include anything "gold" on your project, so I decided to try and play along.
I did not want to prepare a card with this cute stamp, but instead I wanted to prepare a small "gifty" item by making a cover for a pack of microwave popcorn. This is what I came up with:
What do you think? I couldn't help but wonder while I was coloring these little critters what movie they may be watching. Perhaps they are watching the Golden Globe awards that are on tonight and arguing over who is the best dressed?
Well, just wanted to "pop" in and share my little creation. I hope you like it and it inspires you to get inky soon!
