I'm trying to decide what to do with these fabric flowers, aren't they cute.  I made one of the blue ones into a barrett.  I'm thinking I'll make the purple one into a pin and maybe use these other blue ones on cards?  Ummmm what to do !

I've been busy making other is my newest.  I made it smaller than the other trivits I've made.  Its perfect for the size of wine bottles.
I'm going to make a few of these to give to my daughters friend for their tasting room since he gave me a huge bag of corks ! 
No stains from the bottom of the bottle on your tablecloths, counters etc !

Another Less is More Challenge!:

I decided to put an owl on the ledge of the window for the Cut It Out.
I used Stampin Up owl punch and of course I had to use some googly eyes !
The window is Grand Madison Window from poppystamps and the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Punny-licious
I bought this window awhile ago and have never used it, I really like how it turned out.

Less is More - Predominantly Purple

Couldn't pass this challenge up since purple is my favorite color!
Just love this Stampin Up Hello Doily stamp and in the center I used the 3 layer punch also from Stampin Up.  (its hard to tell in this picture but it really is stamped in purple, it must be the lighting in my room)
The stamp  Butterfly Kisses is from Scrappy Moms
Check out the Predominantly Purple challenge here:

Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge - DPDC19

I took this cute precolored Ant Masquerade Ladybug and then brought in another one and fixed them so they are facing each other.  Then I put them both inside the Critter Tops Big Heart, added some text and voila! (I'm trying to practice what I'm learning in Photo Elements class)
