Card and Little Paint Can

I ran out of time to take pictures of some things yesterday. I had a little time to work on some sketches from the weekend. I'll start by showing this card I made for Jen's i{heart}2stamp sketch challenge. I'm going to miss this Dashing DP when it's gone :(
Think I'll order a few packages! The Oh Christmas Tree and dove stamps are from a Gel-A-Tins set that Brian gave me yesterday as an early birthday present!
A couple of weeks ago I was shopping at a local dollar store and came across these cute paint cans. I bought a couple in red, green and a rusty colour(hoping it goes with either Apple Cider or Wanted DP). Not to sure what I'll put in this tin but it will make a nice gift for Christmas for someone ;) I used the Dashing DP again and the sentiment is from Visual Verve. Love those stamps!
UPS was just here! I got a GREAT package from Nancy Morgan and a SURPRISE package from my SECRET ELF on SCS! Off to take some pics to show you all!
