TGIF and FWF

Yippee, I'm taking the day off to go to a scrapbooking convention.  I am very excited since I've never attended one - I know I will be sorely tempted by all the goodies:-)  I guess I can go overboard since I celebrated my one-year obsession with stamping this past weekend:-)

This is my current project - I wanted to try to stamp on tiles and make coasters - even better since each of these tiles cost only 32 cents at Lowe's!  I used my beautiful "Butterfly Beauty" set with a dragonfly that I won in a 25-random bag from Unity on FWF, of course.  These are beautiful large butterflies that I stamped with black Staz On and masked so I could stamp over with a word stamp.  I used chalk to color the butterflies very subtly...


Let me know what you think!  These will make a gorgeous gift for someone and they cost about $1.50 a set!  They will be fabulous handmade gifts for some of the people I work with and that I like to get modest gifts for - they will be thrilled, I'm sure!

Hmmm,  I was thinking earlier that my next set will use a portion of the Unity "Lovely Lilacs" single that I have - that will be beautiful with some chalk pastel coloring....

That's it for today!  Remember to visit all the other blogs on the hop here. And, get your Ippity here!
