From My Home To Yours! 23

Hello Ladies! I hope everyone is having a FANTASTIC weekend! :) I want to send a Heartfelt Thanks to the girls over at the Use It! challenge. My Get Well Wishes Gift Set was randomly chosen as the winner of last week's Use It! challenge #23! Yeah :) As the winner, I will be creating the Use It! challenge for next week so please be sure to give it a try! Every week, it is some sort of new challenge. If you are interested in putting your creative skills to work, give it a go! This week's Use It! challenge #24, these few simple guidelines were to be followed: 1. Make a Cute Paper Gift (I used Nichole Heady's FREE birdhouse template), 2. Bling It Up (I used crystal eyelet brads), 3. Add a Tag (one of MY FAVORITE THINGS :)), 4. Cut Out Some Flowers (I used Quickutz Pointsettia die), 5. Tie it Up (you know I LOVE LOTS of ribbon). If this was not enough of a challenge, a card could be made using the same stash! :) I gave a shot at making a coordinating card! My sketch inspiration is from this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #79, TESC79. If ANY of you ladies are looking for some inspiration or a challenge, I recommend visiting either of these sites! REMEMBER: On Friday, August 28th, I will be creating the Use It! challenge so be sure to stop by & see what I have come up with & give it a try! :) I would love to know if you are feeling inspired? Thanks for stopping by! Be Sweet!
