Woodware USA - Anything But a Card!!

Welcome to another week at Southern Yankee Crafter! Boy, last week was busy, both in real life and blog land!! However, I came out unscathed, so at least it was productive!! I have a project for you today that is anything but a card--our challenge this week at Woodware USA! We have over 125 participants last week...can you believe that one? Let's see if we can top that this week! If you would like to see the DT samples and get more information, visit HERE for details!

Why did I wait so long to try to make one of these awesome flowers? It is so fun, and they look very impressive. One of the things that I tweaked from the instructions I followed--I used a large 3D Zot adhesive. It gave a little more stability!

The front of the Target mailbox, all decked out with a luscious bow, courtesy of the Bow Easy! How could I survive without it? If you don't have one, what are you waiting for? It's AWESOME!

The overall project! I used the wonderful Woodware USA set -- Lots of Hearts -- to add to my project. The designer paper has a bit of a sheen to it. I covered the mailbox flag with Melon Mambo that was run through the Swiss Dot folder in my Cuttlebug.

We'd love to have you play along this week with us! Thanks for stopping by!
