Guest Designer Lynda - day 4!!!

Hello everyone...Lynda Lindley here for another project featuring some wonderful Peachy Keen Stamps!!! I have to say that I am totally in love with this Winter is for the Birds stamp set! She is just the cutest little thing and no matter what you stamp her on it turns out perfect!!




I thought it would be fun today to share a fun altered recycled project with you. To create this you will need the metal top from a frozen juice can. I never throw these away and find that they make perfect ornament bases. I cut a piece of pattern paper to fit the metal and punched a hole in the top. I stamped the sweet little birdie and colored her in. I then backed her with coordinating cardstock. I completed my ornament by adding this fun ball trim along the outside of the metal...hanging the entire thing with some sparkly twine....

She looks so cute on my tree....and I've now made a few more to use as tags for gifts...I hope you'll take a second look at your container lids and see what other fun projects you can make!

I've got a number of questions about which cartridges I used for my earlier projects:
For the day two post I used the chick from Create a Critter cartridge.
For the day three post I used the kitty from the Cindy Loo cartridge.

Now for some Peachy Goodness for you.... Peachy Keen is allowing me to give all these goodies to one lucky person that leaves a comment here on this blog and my blog during this week:

this awesome sampler packet of stamps; contains 7 faces and 2 whiskers



Winter is for the birds mini stamp set

and something to be sure you can get busy with them right away:

a Pink Acrylic Block 4.25" x 4.25" x .5"

So...be sure to leave me a comment here and on my blog for this post and my other posts this week for your increased chance at winning these wonderful Peachy goodies!! Be sure to check back on Saturday to see if it is YOU!!!

I hope you'll stop by each day this week to see what other fun projects I have created for you this week...

Happy crafting...Lynda

I love these ideas since I don't seem to have the "vision" that so many crafters do when recycling.
