Making the Month of May Merrier with Tiny Treats!


 For the month of May, the Dream Team is fixated on "Tiny Treats"...party favors, wedding favors, end of school year treats, teacher appreciation gifts, baby shower favors, co-worker treats, in other words...small tokens of appreciation for those you care about.  I told our fearless leader (Pam) that perhaps I would use a "tiny" bow on my card and I got the stink eye for even thinking such a thing. LOL!!! 

So since I am doing this at the last minute (as per usual), I am presenting a beautiful creation that I have blogged about in the past. It is a business card holder that can be worn as a necklace. This beautiful embossed metal and paper purse was a gift to me from Kathi Anderson. She embossed it on pewter metal from MercartUSA. Kathi travels, teaches, and is a sales rep for Dreamweaver Stencils in the states of New Mexico and Missouri. She used the Black Eyed Susan stencil with the flourishing vines and leaves (LJ902). Although the pewter is somewhat pricey, Kathi says that she is able to put the metal with the stencil through the Big Shot embossing machine. Then she adds more detail work with specialty tools made for embossing metal.

Hope you will have fun planning a "Tiny Treat" for our Month of May challenge. Leave your thumbnail on the linking system below and this month you could win any one item sold by Dreamweaver Stencils. Yep, it's a tricky challenge but the rewards are great. If you don't have your own blog email me a picture of your creation at lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com, and I will blog about it for you. Our random winner will be chosen at the end of the month and posted on the first. Am excited to see what you come up with. For even more details visit the blogs of our design team listed below. Half of them post the first week and the second half of them will post the following week.
