Sherbet Pips...

Hi y''s me again! I've had the best time this weekend...and I'm just dying to share this new little image with you!! Actually, there's a whole set of these little cuties from Sugar Nellie...they're called Sherbet Pips and you can get them at Funky Kits. Here's a pic of all five of these sweethearts! (I can show you now because I've already purchased all of them! Bwahahaha!! <-- that's my evil laugh!!)

So...I made this fun tent card using Honey Pip...

Now, I will tell you that I have never, ever made a tent card...but Dena has a great tutorial for a tent card HERE. I just changed the dimensions a bit...since I generally make 5.5" x 5.5" where Dena says to cut your cards to 6", I just cut to 5.5"...and for the little "tent" piece, I used 5.5" x 4"...everything else was the same...easy peasy!!

I used Blushing Bride cardstock (from Stampin' Up) as my base...and the DPs came from the 50% off table at Barnes & Noble, believe it or not!! They're from K & Company! I just thought the colors were yummy...and my sweet hubby picked up not one but TWO 12" x 12" pads for me...because they were on sale!! That's right...he feeds my crafting addiction too! hehehe!

I colored this little "Pip" with Copics...

Here's a close up of the gorgeous flowers and metal filagree corner (I love these!) from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added a pearl flourish from ZVA Creative...some pearls from my stash...and finished it with a bow made from seam binding (Pear Pizazz from SU). Ooooh...I almost forgot...the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

So...I've decided to enter this little cutie into Challenge #27 at Wild Orchid Challenges which is to make a "Tent" card! Thanks WOC for giving us the link to Dena's tutorial!! And...that's it for me. Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I've been up to...until next time....
