It's time for our monthly Firecracker Designs by Pamela blog hop! This time the theme is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - a theme I LOVE - so you'd think I'd be playing along, right? Well, no, I'm not. My mojo is vacationing someplace far, far away, so I didn't manage to get anything together in time. I had already told the girls to skip me, but I thought I'd give it a go tonight anyway. I had a genius plan, or so I thought! I saw this package of Prima flowers lying on my stamp room floor (yes, on the floor - my room is such a disaster zone right now!!)......and thought I could turn one of the little "cups" into a shaker card! Well. It just didn't turn out how I envisioned. First of all, I tried filling it with chunky glitter and microbeads. All I made was a huge glittery microbeady MESS! I was using bird stamps - what I think would really have been cool is to use birdseed in the shaker - but that involved going out into my dark garage alone at night and I was just too wimpy. (yes Sue, I know there's a lightswitch right next to the door, but still!) So - I may have to retry the card with birdseed in the near future, when I've found my mojo...
After I gave up, I took a look to see what the other ladies came up with - and low and behold Tesa had the same idea to use this sort of packaging!!! But of course hers turned out GREAT!! So... why don't you go ahead and hop on over to Tesa's blog and start the hop there?? It's a circular hop so you'll end up right back where you started. And, leave comments along with the way, because as usual our generous boss Pam is giving away some candy!
Have fun, and I promise I will actually stamp again... someday... :-) Thanks for stopping by!
