My Creative Time 3~D Wednesday

Hello it has been awhile since I have posted! I was down with the stomach virus last week.  I am usually pretty tough and bounce back rather fast but it didn't happen this time! I just hope I took one for the team, I mean family! I am crossing EVERYTHING I have that no one in my house gets it!

Anyway ~ today Emma and the My Creative Time the design team will be featuring 3~D items! I personally LOVE doing them. So many fun things you can make for family and friends. This week was pretty much anything goes. I LOVED the new stamp set "You're My Pot of Gold" which includes the cutest little shamrock die! Lucky this stamp set has this exact sentiment on it because I really wanted to play on the words of it. So I rummaged through my son's kitchen set to find this cute little cooking pot. I thought how fun would it be to fill this up with some gold wrapped candy. Now I will say if the candy wasn't already gold, I could have used the new "Treat Slide Box" die (pre~order only) and wrapped them myself. How CUTE can you make your candy look! My project is really simple but I just giggled making it! Best part is I am giving this to my Mom ~ who LOVES candy & lives with us ~so I get my little pot back! LOL! I want to use it again for a couple other ideas I have!

I also would like to remind everyone that the MCT Designer's Challenge, hosted by our very own Miss Nancy, is still going one ~ we hope to see your creation. Click here for all the details.

Sorry for all the bad pictures but it was windy and rainy here the day I took this!
