Cupid Chickie

Happy Saturday! I've been having LOTS of FUN in my craft studio recently! Here's a little number I whipped up for the most recent 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge!!!

 I had the gray card with the tone-on-tone plaid already stamped from a previous project where I ultimately opted to use a different color card base. I also had the heart doily, the die-cut shimmery pink doily, the die-cut circles, and the die-cut banner in a pile of random pieces on my craft table. All of those things combined made pulling this card together a snap. I just had to stamp the "xoxo" on each end of the banner, stamp that HANDSOME little Cupid Chickie onto the scalloped circle and color him, die-cut the celery green piece, tie on the pink grosgrain ribbon, adhere my layers together and VOILA!

Just made it!!! Shweew! (thus the knot instead of a bow...ha!)

I had a TON of FUN playing in this challenge! It's the PERFECT way to use up a bunch of those bits and pieces that are piling up on my craft studio workspace!!! (You know...the ones that I keep telling myself I'll use someday, but then NEVER do! Well...until now! YAY!)

As sweet as can be Lisa! Way to use up your bits and pieces and I agree go with a knot I always fuss WAY too long on my bows LOL!! It's a riot to get it done in ten minutes huh...but you ROCKED this one!!!

I got so giddy when I saw your name come up in the link widget, Lisa. I always know I'm in for a treat when I visit your blog- especially if it features DeNami!

Fabulous use of the colors- I am in love with that heart doily! Also, I think the knot looks great- a bow might have even distracted from the adorable chickie! :)

Thank you for playing in the 10 Minute Craft Dash. I hope you'll join along again!
