Thanks: New Dilly Beans Challenge

Happy Friday! I for one, am thrilled that it's Friday. My husband has been away on business since early Monday morning, and I cannot wait for him to come back home tonight! I have a brand new Dilly Beans challenge to share with you today. The theme this week is "Thanks." I have a lot of people in my life that need to be thanked lately...and for that fact alone, I am grateful.

I made this card for someone very special...but I don't want to say who it is in case she hasn't gotten it yet. I did something very different for my card today. Can you figure out what it is?

I colored her blonde! I hardly ever do that. I figured it was time to push some boundaries. Plus, my recipient recently went blonde, so I thought it was appropriate. I colored Chloe Bell Framed (#454) completely with watercolors.

My sentiment is also from Dilly Beans. I liked combining all of the different patterned papers. This was a fun (and easy!) layout to do. I think I will do it again soon, but perhaps with some more layers. I am entering this card into the latest Altered Alice challenge. which is Gratitude. She kinda looks like Alice, no?  Now it's time for you to visit the rest of the Dilly Beans gals over at the Challenge Blog. The girls really cooked up some beautiful projects this week. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
