You Color My World


I'm enjoying my week of vacation (I'm sure, this is a pre scheduled post)! :)

I have a quick and easy alter project to share today.

Our neighbors invited us to a spontaneous barbeque party and I needed a quick gift for the hostess. So I took a tin that had once contained tomatoes from our recycling bin and removed the paper and added some of my own instead - beautiful Huntington Garden from Riddersholm Design. With a ribbon, a cut out tag (Fleamarket line from Riddersholm Design) pimped with a dragonfly and sentiment from Dragonflies 2 Clear Stamps Set (Prickley Pear) it was done. Took like 20 minutes. I loooove quick and easy projects!

The dragonfly and sentiment are stamped with Archival ink, Coffee. Look at the amazing pattern of the wings!!! And I love the sentiment. I thought it was perfect for the occasion, she really did color our afternoon (and night as it happened) with the invite!

I filled the tin with flowers from the garden and we were ready to go.

Thanks for stopping by!
