For today's project, I made some favors for a lunch my mom was having with a few of her women friends. I used one of my favorite candy bars, the Big Island Candies crunch bars. They don't sell these in the store because they're fundraiser bars so they're a little harder to find. I covered the bar with some pink cardstock and overlaid it with a doily. I stamped and punched out a "thank you" sentiment and adhered it with pop dots. It's finished off with some Bakers Twine and heart clothes pin from Target's dollar bin. Simple and pretty!
Here's a close up:

It's Sister Stamps release day (woo hoo!) and here's a little extra project using the cute zodiac monkey. I tried to create a scene where monkey is looking at the night sky and its falling stars. I punched out stars of different shapes and temporarily adhered them to white cardstock. Then I distressed around them with Dusty Concord and Broken China Distress Inks. I took the temporary stars off and it left the star images in white. To make them sparkle, I filled them in with Crystal Stickles. In addition, I hung a silver glitter star (SU glitter cardstock) and a red heart (PTI tiny tags) from baker's twine. I added a few tiny silver star stickers and a PTI birthday sentiment.
Here are the stamps available for purchase today and if you're not sure where they're available, check out the official Sisters Stamps blog for retail outlets.
