From the Heart Stamps May Blog Hop


Good morning!  Welcome to the From the Heart Stamps May Blog Hop!  Our theme for the month is "Get Well" or "Encouragement"...stay tuned for some great inspiration!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry.  One random commentor on each blog will be selected to win the image that the designer used for their project.  Plus, one commentor on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store.

If you have arrived from Jo's blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to start at the From the Heart Stamps blog so you don't miss anything.

Here is my project, using Sick Chick:


I thought it would be fun to make something other than a card, so I went with a little gift basket...or cup!  LOL  The Birdbrain is colored with pencils and I've added some buttons for embellishing.  To attach the image to the cup, I adhered a thin strip of cardstock and wrapped it around the mug.  Inside the mug I included some tea, honey, tissues, and lip balm...I also bought a lemon but ran out of room even though the mug is giant.  I tied the sentiment tag around the lip balm with floss.

Image: From the Heart Stamps "Sick Chick" Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Ruby Red
Embellies: PTI Buttons/DMC Buttonhole Floss
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities
