Any Holiday Card



 # 248 Any Holiday


This week's sponsor is



The giveaway is $7 gift certificate to Pickled Potpourri Designs!

I made this Mother's Day card for this week's Any Holiday challenge:
Sorry Mom if I ruined the surprise for you!



I used the Pretty Pansies from Pickled Potpourri.  
Wow! That is almost a tongue twister.

I used a clip art mug and printed it on patterned paper and fussy cut the mug.  I then colored all the pansies and leaves with colored pencils and fussy cut them and added them with foam dot mounts to give the flowers a 3-D affect.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to head to HIMCR to enter your card in this week's challenge and for a chance to win a gift certificate from Pickled Potpourri!

Spring/Summer Planter Box Decor

Not only am I crazy craft lady, but I am a crazy and cheap craft lady too.

I was so excited when hubby made me my Planter Box so I could decorate for all the seasons.

I didn't want to spend oodles of money or have to store a lot of decor, so I decided to challenge myself to decorate it as cheap as possible with things that I can either reuse or recycle and also use for future seasons.

Here is what I came up with for Spring/Summer planter box decor and it cost under $15.00!



The greenery was the most expensive item but I even got a deal on that because Michael's had 40% off some of their floral items.  So I paid a whopping $11.89 for a 6 foot garland that I will be able to reuse in the future.  

I walked out into my backyard and picked up a bunch of pine cones off the ground and spray painted them with spray paint I had on hand. Good thing I had some good taste at some point and had some fun colors on hand..LOL

I saw pine cones painted to look like Zinnias on Pinterest and I thought it was a very clever idea.  

Hubby was very happy that I was picking up pine cones in the backyard. He thought I was helping with the yard work.  He was very disappointed when I only picked up what I needed and then ran off to start spray painting.

I also picked up 2 bunches of the white flowers for filler at the Dollar Tree.

The total this project cost me was $14.72 with tax!  Pretty sweet project at a pretty sweet price!

Mirror Stand with Shelves

Well it seems like this project has taken forever to get finished but in truth, Hubby has had this project finished for a couple of weeks.  He was just waiting for the "paint department" a.k.a Me, to get the project finished.  He builds and I paint.  That is how we roll.

I was finally able to squeeze in some time last night and today to finish up this awesome Mirror Stand with Shelves that has a Lazy Susan base so that it spins around 360°!





We actually made this for a customer and have another one in process that will be for me, of course.  Once I saw what he built I of course had to have one for myself too.

Thanks for stopping by!
