LOTV Sneak Peek!

First, let me say a big "THANK YOU" for all the sweet birthday wishes.  I always say "blog friends are the best"!!! It made my day to have so many wonderful people wishing me a happy day! I had a wonderful day with my friends!

Today several of my LOTV teamies are also showing sneak peeks, so be sure to check out Claudia, Fleur, Kathy and Bev's blogs for soon to be released Lili of the Valley stamps! These are such happy little stamps and this one is no exception. I am sorry for the poor camera work.  I didn't like how everything came out, but my cute Easter stuff is packed away, and when I went to take pictures with a different background, the camera wouldn't download the photos.RRRR!!! Don't you just love it when thing don't go your way? haha!  So here's my little project!

Just so you know, I love to recycle things as much as possible, so when I saw this new sized coffee can, I knew it would turn into a craft project! haha!

First, I colored the adorable new "Easter Sweeties" with distress inks, then spray painted all the silver parts with white matte paint, then covered the can with design paper.  I pleated some tulle and hot glued it around the top of the can.

I used some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to decorate the sides with a large tulle bow.  You can see the added wire handle given just a tiny twist at the top.

 Now you can go to town as much as you want with decorating, but I kept it pretty simple .  I thought this might be a cute way to give someone a gift for Easter.  I guess it could even be used as a basket of sorts.

Anyhow, don't forget to check out Kathy, BevClaudia and Fleur's  blogs today and see what they did with some of those new stamps coming out mid February!!!!


Something else to keep an eye for is this Wednesday there will be a new challenge on the Little Darlings Challenge Blog and a special blog hop! They will be introducing a new line of stamps called 'Cutie Pies'. I will be helping out with the hop to show you these sweet new images. I hope to see you all at the hop on Wednesday and yes there will be some candy!

I will show you my little sneak peek as soon as my camera starts cooperating again!

Thanks for stopping by!   Have a wonderful day!!

Happy Crafting, Dena

  12. Hi Dena, as I am knew to your blog (found you via LOTV) I had no idea it was your birthday so please forgive the blunder. Anyway please except my wishes for a very good year ahead and I am so pleased to hear you had a lovely day.
    As to your lovely creation, well how delightful. I think anyone, but especially children, would love to receive this filled with small eggs or maybe even a little bunny holding an egg popped inside. Such a cute idea.
    All the best Linda

  23. Hi Dena...I've been out of the country on a cruise and then, when I came back, I had a kabillion things to catch up on...and then I caught a cold. Ugh! Anyway...that's why I haven't been visiting lately! What fun to catch up! This project is absolutely adorable! I love how you recycle and repurpose! Also love the new LOTV images! Beautiful work! Hugs. Pat Frank

  24. I am so jealous you get the new images and they are not coming out so quick as it takes extra longer to get them here in the US. I love this creation though and I think it will be fun to make my daughter's Easter basket this year if I can get the images quickly! Such a great inspiration thanks!


Thank you for visiting me! I love to read all your comments.
