A little bubbly...

Happy Monday Peeps!

I hope you had a wonderfully relaxing (or productive) and fun weekend.  We sure did.
Our deck is coming right along and it is amazing to see it grow.  Mike is doing an incredible job and he's moving right along.  I can hear that deck furniture calling my name!!  We took a break Saturday afternoon and took advantage of Brittany being home for the night and we went to National Harbor.  If you haven't been, you should go.  It's a lot of fun.  There are some great shops...amazing food and the view is just beautiful.  

Here are a couple of photos from our adventure...

So today I've been busy working on getting things ready for tomorrow's stamp camp here at my house.  I'm really looking forward to it.  I also have a few cute projects to share this week and today's is one of my faves.  Here it is....


It's a small canning jar filled with scented bath salts.  It would be a perfect gift to brighten someone's day for any occasion....or no occasion at all...just because. It's for one of those relaxing "Calgon...take me away!" times that we all have.  Plus....it's pretty!
Check out this cool new flower I learned how to make this week...


Isn't that sweet?  It's actually made out of felt using the Circles #2 die for the Big Shot and Linen Thread!
 I love it!
Quick and easy.  (The button is retired but I was trying it out for the first time and used what I had on hand.)  There are so many possibilities....

The ribbon around the jar lid is 5/8" Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon and I stamped the dots from the "Best Friends Forever" stamp set in Rose Red.  It gives the ribbon a whole new look!  The wrap around the jar is just a strip of Island Indigo card stock.  I punched both the top and bottom edges using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  


The tag is stamped in Rose Red using the Polka Dot Frame from the "Four Frames" stamp set and the greeting is from the "Because I Care" stamp set.  I added a couple of Pearls just to finish it off...and....VOILA!
