We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and they, along with our three runner ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!

I'm not really good at cards - so I certainly need the practice.  Here is my take on this!  I actually made a piece to go on a scrapbook page.

Peachy Keen Challenge Entry

I wanted to enter into the Peachy Keen Challenge this time so I decided to make a hair bow.

 It started out looking kinda plain and one of my crafting buddies Tara over at 
"you need to add some bling"

Seems kinda odd to me that it looks such a different color outside verses inside.  So what do you think?  Should I make another one?  Different color flower?

Thanks for dropping by and visiting!!!

While the fields are bare,
Buttercups and daisies
Spring up here and there.

I used a Martha Stewart chick punch and some CTMH paper.
Covered a binder clip and wa la you have a picture holder!

The pretty ribbon is actually an old princess skirt piece.  I love to recycle!!!
