Wee Memories Challenge and some other crafty goodness!

Hello crafty friends!  Happy Friday!  I'm really enjoying being able to share projects with you again, now that life has calmed down a bit!  First of all, I wanted to share with you all that I was the lucky LUCKY winner of Kim Wilson's Relay for Life prize pack over on her blog -- which included 8 or 9 stamp sets, adhesives, distress ink, pens, and even more goodies!  I got the package in the mail not too long ago, and so I wanted to get inky right away!

One of the reasons I was doubly pumped about this prize pack (as if there weren't enough reasons above), is that all of the stamp sets I won were from stamp companies whose stamps I don't own!  I'm always looking for new stamp companies, but it's hard to invest in too many!  I was most pumped to finally get my hands on some Wilson Design stamps - namely the Everything's OwlRight set!  I used it lots in today's card:

I am super proud of this card!  I really enjoyed blending my Wilson Designs and Lawn Fawn stamp sets!  Although the design is CAS, I did a lot of work on this card to make it fab!  The background is hand-stamped, the polaroid was masked off and the party hat was paper-pieced, AND that little yellow flower was also made by ME!  =)  It's a homemade resin flower!!!  Anyhow, I'm really happy with how the whole thing turned out!

I kept this card CAS because I was inspired by the current Wee Memories Challenge:

I have one more crafty project to share with you today!  I was over on Pinterest (if you haven't gone there yet, do it NOW!) and I saw this awesome yarn wreath with handmade felt dahlia's on it.  I followed the picture to THIS AMAZING BLOG!  I modified some things for my own wreath, mainly using three dahlias, not including the argyle pattern and wrapping the wreath with ribbon instead of yarn.  Here's how it turned out: 

I ended up really liking the result!  It looks just great on our front door!  =)  It was time-consuming, but totally worth it for the final result!  =)

Well, that's all I have to share for now, but I do have more fun things to share with you SOON!  Stay tuned, and have a fantastic weekend!  =)
