Hello, Hello, Hellooooo!
Welcome again :)
I hope you saw the table of pastries and refreshments when you came in as well as the giant sign that said, "Who's the idiot in the room?" with the enormous arrow pointing to me!
Before I get to that, here is my making for our current challenge over at Heck Of a Challenge. Remember, it's a month long challenge so you have plenty of time to enter into the theme of
12 Days of Christmas!!
Using the lyrics of the song, I chose the Pipers Piping as my inspiration. Can't think of what those "horn stuffer" things are called, but the bingo chip is supposed to symbolize that, plus the number is how many pipers are piping, apparently....
Had the project all done, pictures taken and this came out blurry, so I was headed back to the photo box to take a better one when my son said, "Uhhh, mom? Isn't it 3 French Hens?" to which I said, "WHAAAT???" I hate when song writers screw up the words! I sang it. "Four calling birds, 3 french horns, 2 turtle doves..." WRONG!!!!
Sooo, phew...son saved the day and mom got the idiot of the day award! I even had the lyrics in front of me, geesh!
In correlation to this wonderful challenge at Heck Of a Challenge, I'm also working this into another challenge over at the Funkie Junkie where it's Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas challenge.
Here is Linda's tag # 9.
From this tag, which has a wonderful country cozy appeal to it, I drew inspiration from the wood grain, silver stars, TH tag, the red buttons, and the green gingham bow.
If you enjoyed the elements used on Linda's tag, you can find them here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, which is also sponsoring this fantastic 12 tags challenge.
I wood grained the base of my Altoids can, used pine greenery to symbolize the gingham bow, added a few sticks of wood, two silver stars, the TH play tag, red berries to pull out the red of the buttons on Linda's tag and finally the correct number 11!
So, be festive, be silly, be creative and bring your love of Christmas on over to Heck Of a Challenge for our 12 Days of Christmas theme!
Thank you so much for stopping in, I truly appreciate you.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
