(There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!

I’m starting off the Hop with two projects for today’s set – Hearts, Hearts, Hearts.



This set has several small images, and I thought they would make cute tic tac toe pieces. I stamped the smallest heart and the butterfly four times, colored them with Copic markers, and punched them out with a 1 ¼” punch. After putting in the grid lines, I placed the tic tac toe pieces in such a way that the hearts won. I added the Good Luck sentiment at the top – you always need luck in this game!



My second project is a wooden box with a matching card. First, I stamped the heart wreath on MFP Naturals Ivory cardstock. colored it with Copic markers and then cut it out. Using the zig zag DP from Basic Grey’s Porcelain paper pad, I glued it to the side of the box. Then I Modge Podged the box about three times. The matching card was made using the same stamp and DP.




I have run out of salt & pepper shakers that coordinate with stamp sets, so I'm just going to show you some of my other sets this month. My sister and I had seen Wicked last year in Fort Myers, Florida. She told me when she saw this set that she had to buy it for me. Just coincidentally, The Wizard of Oz was on TV a couple of weeks ago!

Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they did with this set. And remember, you have a chance to win one of the stamp sets to be released next month.
