Wood Letters

Hello fellow crafters! I have a cute and quick project to share with you guys today.

Peachy Keen always has some awesome challenges, and this week the challenge is to make a 3D project with a Pet Theme. How fun huh?

I have never painted wooden letters before, but let me tell you they were so much fun and relaxing to paint:)

I used acrylic paints that I had bought awhile ago from Michaels. I was excited to do some painting because I was going to get a chance to use my new paint brushes. I got these paint brushes on clearance from a BigLots that was closing down in our neighborhood.

My painting skills are not the best, but it was still fun painting and giving each letter a design.

I used some of my Peachy Keen stamps on the letters. The bones on the x letter and the paws on one of the I's are from Peachy Keens PK-1331 Dog Background size A2 set and PKSC-20 August 2013 release. I used some paint on the paws to make them stand out but left the bones as is.

The letters spell out Pixie, my boyfriends dog. Ok I have to say she's my dog to, she's adorable and such a sweet German Shepherd, lol. Im thinking of spraying the letters with a sealer and gluing them to the front of her house:)

I would like to enter my project in the following challenges:

BFF Bday Card

Hello Crafty Friends:) Hope everyone doing good today! I have a card to share with y'all today.

I made this card last night to fit a few challenges, but my overall theme is an office supplies theme lol. The Peachy Keen Connection has a really cool challenge going on right now to celebrate their new monthly release. One of the challenges is to create a project using an office supply theme. This was my take on it:)

I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash for the layout of my card.

At the office we have, file folders, paper clips and tape. Ok so we have more supplies then that, but I wanted to use these three things on my card. For tape I used washi tape. Ok let me just tell you, this was the first time I used washi tape, (I know Im late, lol) but it was so much fun :)lol. Im glad I took advantage of the sale and order all different ones. 
The cool colored paper clips I got recently at the Dollar Store. The paper I used on my card was from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies Stack. 

The file folder I used is one of Emma's  (at My Creative Time) new die. It is fabulous, I am so going to use this more often:) I also used her new "Stitched Square Bubbles" and "More of my Favorite Sayings" stamp set.

For the images, and sentiments, I used Peachy Keen's Pk-192 Somebunny Special for the "Friends Forever" sentiment. PK-125 Recess Jump Rope Girl for the image and PK-106 With a Cherry on Top for the inside of my sentiment.

Super easy to make and super fun:)
