It's the 25th

It's the 25th so the day that my blog always get some love and some color.   I love the PTI blog challenge and I played along and made 3 projects so I will be posting these throughout the week.   First the challenge was to "wrap it up".   A perfect challenge to use items from talkingtwineandtrim@etsy.com and Papertrey ink.   So here is the inspiration:


Here is my project.   I used a little treat bag from Talking Twine and Trim and cute a window in the front using the PTI seed die cut.   Then used a sheet of acetate inside the bag for the window.   Next I die cut the little felt flowers again with PTI die cuts and felt.   Next all flowers need a center so a touch of bling.   The surprise sentiment is PTI Movers and Shapers sentiments.   The bag is closed with a bit of washi tape.   Inside the bag is a seed packet of bush beans a great little gift for one of my gardening friends and ready for a birthday.

MIM Sunflowers Mirror image

Well it looks like I will have at least 3 post this week on my blog.   That could be a record number so please if anyone looks here don't laugh.

This card uses some hand scrunched seam binding from the shop that I love, this is dusty olive.   I did this for Make it Monday challenge (MIM).   This is the first that I have played with the Sunflower stamp and I need to work on centering the center but I  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the stamp.   The technique was to mirror image a sentiment.   It worked but it isn't as clean looking as I like but I tried it and glad I did.

Back tomorrow with a bag.
