Altered Paint can for Matthew

Matthew has wanted a paint can likes Sissy for a while. So while we were out for school on Monday I decided to make his. He got to chose what he wanted on it. Here's what he came up with:
A doggy and an airplane...

A monkey driving a truck with an apple in the back pulling the boat... Oh let's not forget the spider!

For the lid I used my eyelet setter to punch a hole in the top and then I threaded a ribbon through and tied with a double knot so that it wouldn't come out. I crimped the inside edges of the paint can so that it comes on and off easier when pulled on my the ribbon.
Now he has a special place to store all of his crayons and markers! I also covered the can with modge podge for added protection!

(All of the above die cuts were cut with my Cricut by Provocraft!)

Busy weekend

So this weekend I completed the 70 Christmas cards for Jason and the company. Phew! Relief to have those done. I also completed a couple other cards. These are for a couple family members. I'm not going to tell who though, I want to keep you guessing! ; )

The stamp for this one is from house mouse. I stamped the image and colored with Stampin up water color pencils and I then used UTEE to give it a glossy look. The background paper is also from Stampin Up. I just thought that it was perfect for this card!

I also used UTEE and then cut out the golf ball and used pop dots to "pop" it out of the card. The inside says We wish you a toteely happy birthday!

The stamp for this card is from Stampin up. I colored with watercolor pencils and also used UTEE. Can you tell I am addicted to it?! To me it just adds so much more to a card!
