Cookie Tin, Band-Aid Tin, Card

Here is a cookie tin, band-aid tin, and card I made using Pretty Amazing. 

The cookie tin I stole from my mom tonight!!  I thought wow this would be fun to decorate.  I have no idea where she got them (probably Costco).  The butterfly and humming bird are colored in with chalk.  I also finally opened my Pretties Kit and put a little something together and tied it with ribbon.  

The Band-aid tin I bought from Oriental Trading.  I was upset to find out that there is no handle on the top :(

Paper: Berry Bliss, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip

January 08 VSN

Well VSN is all over.  I didn't get to do as many challenges as I would have liked, but I still had a blast doing it.  Friday night my upline Annette came over!  We sure  laughed and had fun on some of them.  Thinking what are we going to do??

The first challenge was to make a circle card.  I've never done this before so I was excited.  I will admit this was my second attempt.  The first circle didn't come out so great!

Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Paper: Real Red, Regal Rose, Old Olive
Ink: Black Stazon, Real Red

The second challenge I did was to create a card that was about Pink and Brown shoes!!  What fun!!  I do have one pair of pink heals!  There soo cute!! Wish I got to wear them more.  The gift bag in the picture had a very gorgeous bow on it so I thought I would add that on the card.
