Shopping Our Stash Challenge #68 3-2-1!!

Hello Hello!!

How is it Tuesday again already?!

I'm here with this week's Shopping Our Stash challenge!


This week we're challenging you to use 3-2-1. That's 3 of something, 2 of another thing and 1 of another!

Here's what I came up with:



 It's a very crooked photo but I was in a rush to get out the door with my parents who were visiting for the weekend!

The 3--three stamps :) 
the 2-- two "patterned" papers (well, one patterned, one glittery, but I think that counts!!)
the 1-- one piece of neon twine. Darn you Lisa Spangler for showing me those!


Super simple! Stamped the ADORABLE stamp from Lawn Fawn (love) coloured him in with new copics--thanks Steph!! Edged the piece of cardstock with Distress Ink, mounted it onto stripey Lawn Fawn paper (wish I could buy that by the ream!), cut a little notch out of each side for the twine (used my crop-a-dile), the added the twine.
Mounted that onto some GAWJUSS glittery AC paper (thanks Chari!!) then mounted THAT onto some Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock. 
Oh, and I added some stickles to his wings and horns...coz, well it makes him more magic :) (yes I know it's supposed to be magiCAL but I like it that way better :))

 SO CUTE.

This one will be going to my beautiful nephew who is far away from me but always in my heart.

OK loves!  Now head on over to the SOS blog and check out the rest of the DT's creations!!

Enter via the inlinkz linky tool on the blog too! We'd love to see what you create.
