Dress Up Framelits

Today is "Girly Day" at our church Card Ministry. We're making birthday cards to send to the senior ladies. Then just for fun, we're going to make the lipstick holders  you see below. I'm excited because I think everyone will have fun playing and experimenting with lace, ribbons, pearls and paper dolls!! I made these samples just to give the girls some ideas, but I'm packing all kinds of stuff to take for them to play around with. The directions for the lipstick holder came from my friend Brenda. You can find them on her blog. On one of them you can see I added the dress form. Instead of cardstock, I used the cardboard backing from a package of designer series paper.

Stampin' Up's Sturdy Cardstock

SU's cardstock is thick enough to make these adorable little favors. I'm going to give some away at a vendor fair and make some for a craft show.  Just who came up with the design construction of these keen kisses? Not me, no unh-uh. That would be my friend Brenda. She is amazingly talented! She has tutorials on her website.

Mojo Monday Challenge

This is my entry for the Mojo Monday Challenge. Even though the star from this stamp set is retired, I still love it:) I paired it with the sentiment from More Merry Messages which is current.

Taggin' Taggin' Taggin'

For some reason, that Rawhide song is stuck in my head. My Daddy used to watch that show all the time when I was little. It was the first big thing Clint Eastwood ever did I think. Anyway that cowboy song is stuck in my head! Wanna see a handsome young Clint Eastwood?  Don't have any idea what I'm talking about and want to see?  Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StueBUdq80k

So here are my tags, that have absolutely nothing what so ever to do with cowboys or Clint Eastwood. lol

I love the things from the new Holiday Catalog! The Naughty and Nice Rotary Stamp is so much fun. All those great images and sayings for 5 dollars! Can you see the tiny little lights on the bottom of the tag? They are from that rotary stamp as well as the Ho Ho Ho. I just LOVE those cute little bows! Aren't they adorable?
