Fun Stuff...

Today is the last day of previews for Clear Dollar Stamps. It's been wonderful to share what I've been up to during the month over the last couple of days. I'll be spending the next ten days make up my samples for next month's previews. Can't wait to get started on my assignments. So... what do I have for you today? A card and an altered promotional magnet.

When I first laid my eyes on the "Happy Rainbow" and "God Always Keeps His Promises" stamps I immediately knew what I was going to make with them. On one of my trips to my Mom's over the summer she had me clean out her fridge from the inside to the out and on the outside she had a ton of magnets. Two of which were clippy magnets from some miscellaneous medicine company. Those were the first to come down and instead of throwing them away I knew I could do something crafty with them and asked if I could have them. They've been in my stamping stash every since. I used one for this project and the other one I am saving for later. The recycled magnet came along relatively quickly once I figured out what papers I was going to use. From there I took the labels off and gave it a good washing. While it was drying I cut out some clouds and colored "Happy Rainbow". A ribbon here, some buttons there, and don't forget the pop dots and wha-la... the magnet was good as new. Actually it was better than new... it had been recycled. :-)

I am sorry to say that I don't have an exciting story to go along with my card but I will say that it is special. I used the upcoming December Stamp of the Month, Critter Log, to make it and during December it will be included for free with any $30 purchase instead of the usual $50 or more. How fun is that?!

We'll I better scadoodle for now. My mother-in-law is coming in from South Carolina this week and I need get unpacked from our Thanksgiving travels and clean house. I hope you have a splendid day and don't forget to checkout these links for more Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks:
