Have a great day.

Hi Everyone, It's Tuesday and that means it is my day to share with you at Getting Cricky.  I have recently found a lot of cards that I made and never shared so I am going to start sharing them now.

I used Food for Thought for the sentiment and the puppy is from Create a Critter.  I added some eye-lets and it was done.

Hope you enjoy your day.

Pinque Peacock Design Team Altered Frame

Hi Everyone! All I have to say is TGIF!!  I have an altered frame to share with you today and a story. So I completely forgot that I had to have my post for today. For some reason I thought it was next Friday that I was going to share with you. So at 11 pm last night I had to make something up.  I had no idea what to do. Well I have been trying to go through old projects that I loved at the time but now not so much, and revamping them into something else. So I dug into my stash and pulled out the frame.  So here is the AFTER...

 I found a before picture...lol and it was one of the first things I ever made on my blog so I think I have come a long way since then.

It was a black frame I had painted and glittered, but I didn't do a great job on it. So I took pink paint and painted over the black. Then I took a piece of paper towel and rubbed the pink off. So it gave it the muted distressed look, but you could still see the black and sparkles.  Then I used some bling in the 2 corners to jazz it up. The pin is from the Pinque Peacock Bead Buffet. I'll explain that shortly. Then I grabbed some flowers and I sandwiched the pin between the 2 layers of flowers. The paper is from Crafting Family and it is called Girlfriend Phrases by TPC Studios Added some ribbon and I have a new and CUTE picture frame.OOH, and I glittered the top of the pin :)

So the Pinque Peacock Bead Buffet is really cool. On the Pinque Peacock Facebok there is a photo album called the Bead Buffet. Here is the link.It is being restocked today, but what you do is you pick the beads you want and then you can actually make the pins yourself, or you can use the bead buffet to order custom pins. If making pins isn't your thing. :)  So go check it out and I hope you have enjoyed the frame.

I hope you like my frame redo and enjoy your Friday.

Hello Sweet Cheeks

Happy Tuesday
I have a cute little card for you today cause it is my day to share at Getting Cricky.

I used a cute little squirrel from Create a Critter and then the sentiment in from Food For Thought.  I did a little embossing and added some eye-lets. That is it easy peasy.

Have a great night.

Craftin Desert Divas Link up Party.

I am posting today as a guest designer for Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!

This linky party theme is a color challenge. The sponsor is Pinque Peacock. The more you link up, the better chance you have to win.  Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

Here is the photo for the color challenge.

Here is my card.

I used a Stampin Up die that cut the card base and then cut the star out as you ran it through. It was called movers and shapers.  I cut a few extra stars to put on the card too.  Then I added a fabulous Pinque Peacock beaded stick pin from the April Release.

It seemed like such an easy challenge, but I must have started 3 or 4 projects that I couldn't get to work. so I will post those in the next few weeks.  Hope you come join us.

Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!

Pinque Peacock April release

Hello to all of our Pretty Little Peacocks

Welcome to Pinque Peacock’s
April New Release


We hope you will enjoy your time as you hop and that you feel inspired to create after visiting the Talented Pinquettes' Blogs! This hop will showcase projects that have been created using some of the April NEW RELEASE Products from Pinque Peacock.

We are thrilled to have you joining us this month as this is a very special New Release of products and we are all so very excited to share it all with you!  Our April Release is full of beautiful color palettes, wonderful inspiration from the Pinquettes, and fabulous sparkle and shine as we celebrate PEACOCKS.

After hopping, be sure to visit the Pinque Peacock Shop on FB to order the New Release items to jazz up tons of your projects.

You should have hopped over here from Beckie, if not make sure you start at the Pinque Peacock page.

So I have been in an altering mood lately, so I found this tin at Target for $.30, it had a green ribbon on it for the handle and I just removed that to make it this....

 I had to hang it in my bathroom so you could see the handle :)

Here is a close up of the side.

I rethreaded ribbon in the handle and used that same ribbon for the band around the middle. I then raided my flower and bling stash. I just used my finger to space out the bling at the bottom. Then the special part :) The center of the cream flower is the new Fabric covered buttons at Pinque Peacock.

So that is my project make sure to hop over to Lisa next.
I am also entering this into the Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge May Flowers.
