....ah ~ a great week with some creating, too!

happy scrappy thursday everyone! 
well...after a busy week and a half here...i was able to get out my scrappy goodies yesterday and do a lil creating! i've had company from out of town (dh's aunt and uncle from across canada) ~ and been busy working on the rv ~ so my goodies have been tucked away and just beggin to come out and play! funny how a week or so can go by ~ when life gets in the way ....how much we miss our creative time ~ i sure did! i missed seeing everyone's creations and participating in the 
challenges ~ but...i'm here now!

for try it on tuesday's challenge this week...it's all about altering a can. i love altering ~ so it was a perfect challenge for me! dh and i had some canned corn with our sup...so instead sending it to recycling ~ i created my altered can for a few of my copics! why waste a good thing eh! 
 i think it turned out pretty kewl!

...and of course ~ i created another card using a great sketch #130 ~ created by arlana over at sweet sketch wedesday. thanks again chickie! i colored and handcut another sarah kay image ~ isn't she a doll!
oh...and speaking of altering ~ i altered a set of clothes pins! kewl eh! i'm gonna use these to hang my christmas cards this year ...instead of just hanging them on a piece of boring string. ah...this should spice it up a bit!  it's a great project and takes no time at all to create. 
hope you find some inspiration.
