About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Ice...Ice.... baby !

Ice...Ice....Bucket, baby!!!!!
I love to find a bargain and this one is a true bargain.  I was lurking in the halloween clearance at Hobby Lobby and saw this bucket.  From this side showing I was curious as to why there was a hook on it.  I opened it and saw the scoop....  Ahhhhhhh an insulated ice bucket.  The regular price was 19.99.  But the clearance was for 75% off. So I grabbed this treat for $5 and some change (tax).

The scoop that was inside.
The image was on both sides of the bucket.

I wanted to use it not just for halloween so you will see what I did.  I first measured the image on the bucket and then cut out a filigree looking cut from the Reminisce Accents cart w/ the shadow to cover any of the existing image.  The wording is from Cheerful Seasons cart.  Both of these carts are exclusives from Creative Memories.  You can purchase them from my niece HERE.

So, of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone. I had to doll it up some more. I made a flower using the sizzix die in the pic with some printed vellum and black cardstock. Inserted a brad in the middle and stuck it on. I covered both sides with the cricut cuts, but only the side without the hook got the flower.

Until later, Not-so icy friends.........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!
