Gift card tin & a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

First of all, I wanted to wish my good friend Heidi a VERY VERY VERY Happy Birthday!!!!!! I hope you have a day full of love and laughter and that you get spoiled rotten on your special day!!!! If you want to send your wishes to Heidi, head over to the Simon Says Stamp blog and leave her a comment....I KNOW she will be THRILLED to read all the good wishes!!!! Mwahhhh!!! Luv ya!!!

Also, for Heidi's birthday celebration, there are some FABBY things going on! Read yesterdays post or head to the Challenge Blog!!! Her birthday wish is for 200 people to participate in this weeks challenge (sketch) so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE join us & help make Heidi's wish come TRUE!!!!


Now, my project for today!!!! I bought these gift card tins from Michael's for $1.50 & they sat in my "box of alterables" for a VERY long time! I needed a gift card holder so I thought I'd pull one of these out and cover it. I tried using Ranger Alcohol Inks on it, but the inks weren't dark enough to cover the pattern that was on the top so I covered it with paper and ribbon along the sides. It was a first trial of covering this type of tin, and I'm not 100% happy with it, but I think the next one will be better! I used Tangerine Tango DP & CS and Tilda with Sunflower is coloured with Copics.





Inside the tin is a little plastic insert that holds the gift card.
Thanks for popping by! HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!! And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEIDI!!!!!!!!
