"Wood" you like to see....

what I did today? The "wood" is because that was the Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS today...to use wood in our projects! So here is my take on the challenge...(click on photo for a closer view)



Main image is by High Hopes Stamps and the sentiment is by Papertrey - Green Thumb set. I colored the image with markers and my aqua painter. This is also the sketch from yesterday's challenge. The green layer is embossed with my flower folder. I sewed around the outside of the card and my focal point. My "wood" is a wooden sun that I found at my grocery store at least a year ago during their Dollar Days! It came in a pack of 8 or 10. This is the first one to be used!!! Yes, I hoard! I admit it!

Next up for today is another fun project but not for today's challenge. This is one of the things that has been on my "to do" list. I can't remember the name of this toy but it is one of things where you try to get the BB in the hole! All images are by CC Designs, Halloween set.



I apologize for the picture...it was a tough one between the angle and the glare! If you have any questions, let me know! This is made with a Wilton favor tin or some people call them watchmaker tins. I cut a piece of fun foam to fit the bottom and then layered my card stock on top...I colored the images with my Copic markers - what great, rich color they produce. I punched the holes and then placed it in the tin...I then wrapped a large orange ribbon around the outside to keep the tin shut. The ribbon is adhered with two sided tape. I used my SU! tag punches for the tag!
These are a quick and fun toy for a classroom, friends, scout troops...don't take long to make at all and the BB's (found in the hunting section at Walmart) come in a pack of at least 600!!

I'm in the middle of another wood project - a gift for DD's friend...if all goes well I'll post it later tonight or tomorrow...I didn't get much done today because it is my birthday and of course I had to go shopping! Oldest DD says she wants to take me out to dinner tonight...she says for my birthday, I think it's because she didn't want the meatloaf I originally planned for!!! ;-)

Thanks for checking in...
See you soon...
