Wonderful Day...


It is, indeed, a wonderful day in Missouri!

There is NO snow, ice, or sleet falling from the sky, and are you ready for this?


Woo hoo!
DH actually got to town for us today. I don't recommend doing our driveway in a sideways fashion, but luckily, he didn't get t-boned as he slid out into the highway. Ugh...hills... beautiful to look at, and sled down, driving??? not so much!
My project today features the Bildmalarna stamp "Mimosa - Wonderful Day". I think she is as sweet as can be! I took the liberty of trimming off her flowers, and giving her some hearts instead! All DP's are from the Basic Grey Hopscotch Collection, and bless her little 'heart', she is paperpieced from top to bottom except for her skin and hair!
I hope you like her! Now, she is NOT a greeting card - this is actually a box of Nuggets, and se is perched on the lid! I made the box a bit larger than 6 x 6. The nuggets are also covered with the BG Hopscotch Collection. The little white doily is from the Dollar Store, and I highlighted it with a Copic marker, so that it would stand out a bit. The conversation hearts and nail heads were purchased a year or two ago at Joann's Crafts. I looped the bottom heart around her hand with a piece of twine.

I am entering this in the challenge at All That Scraps - "Anything Goes" (use an image sold in their store) and also at 7 Kids College Fund - I {Heart} You! (use hearts on your project, and use an image sold in their store). I think this fits in both challenges!

It feels good to finally enter a challenge again! I don't usually enter these two challenges, as my confidence is lacking, but decided to give it a try today! Guess it's the sunshine going to my head!!!

Have a great Thursday evening!

Hugs and smiles...Patti J.

P.S. Don't forget that there is still time to answer my itty-bitty blog candy question here!

Oh wow what a wonderful job Patti!!!!
Love the image on the top of the box (new to me) so sweet and all your little hearts....perfect. Love that you added some colour to the heart doily too. Then you open the lid and you've matched the wrappers!!!! Fantastic!' Hope you have a great snow and sunshine would be good!

Oh she is adorable as can be propped on top of those chocolates!
I love that you made this nice sized box of goodies.
These would never last at my house.
Thanks for all your sweet comments lately.
I am thrilled to be home and trying to accept the 23.5 inches of snow with GRACE-NOT!

Patti, that is sooo pretty! And look at all that chocolate in there.
We had the same kind of day in Ohio. It was very cold, but the sun was shining! That was a nice change for the last few days.
