Mega Meet 2014 Make & Take 1

Another Mega Meet has come and gone (sniff, sniff!) and it was, as always, EPIC.  If you've never been, I strongly suggest that you check it out.  The convention comes to Novi, MI once a year (Mother's Day weekend) and it's the most fun you an have while killing your feet and emptying your wallet.

The show is filled with fun new demos and make and takes and most importantly, this year, it featured TIM HOLTZ!  I'm sure all you know that I adore Tim Holtz.  I feel that the show needs some different organization but this year's show was worlds better than last year's!

Anyways, one of my favorite booths, Tessler Stencil Co., was at the Mega Meet and had a make and take.  When I got home with it, it looked like this.


I wanted to turn it into a card, but I knew it needed some cutesy accents, so I made dragonflies to embellish it. I used the same ink pad I used on the M&T so it would match.


I think it just pops now.  The colored background and the hummingbirds bring it all together.  I know you can't see it but the flowers have all been glittered as well as the birds' wings.


I'm entering some challenges, of course :)

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!

  7. Fabulous! I'm always amazed how some small tweak can change a card from very nice to fantastic. Your additions of the hummingbirds do just that. So glad you shared it with us for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge.
