Dee has been experiencing some health issues and is inneed of prayer, so if you could include Dee in your prayers, it would be most appreciated!

JUST A LITTLE THING– Mothers’ Day is just around the corner so let’s make “Just a Little Thing” for Mom – or for whomever you please. Today we are making small creations — and the choice is yours! I LOVE working on a tiny canvas and when I do, I just see *vintage* in my mind’s eye (though you need not do vintage if it’s not your thing)! You could make an ATC, a bookmark, a small project with an Inchie, a tiny card (3 x 3 or smaller), a gift tag — whatever you can dream up — but make JUST A LITTLE THING today. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with!!!! Have fun!!!

And Id like to extend a warmwelcome todayto Deb Saaranen (Dream in Color)who isjoining us again, this time in the capacity as one of our regular weekly designers. Dee felt it necessary to step down, at least for the time being, so I was elated when Deb agreed to join us!!! Deb has previously worked with us as a Guest Designer and also as one of our *party players* — remember our parities – LOL!!! WELCOME, Deb!!! So glad to have you!!!

Please bear with us as we are all uploading and linking on Thursday night.

What wonderful samples!!! Thank you girls!!! Much appreciated!!!

Heres my*litttle* creationfor today:


Just a Little Thing – Stamped Simply! The image is 2 x 3 and the overall size is about 6 x 2.5. It’s basically a bookmark, but not one you’d really use. It’s just kind of for decoration. I left the silk tails quite long so they can be tied on top and this can be hung on a hook or knob. Just a Little Thing! The image is prepinted from Crafty Secrets and the stamped image on the bottom is from one of the new sets soon to be shipped by JustRite called Tiny Words Set — it’s so cute and little — perfect for today’s project! These stamps are used on the new and tiny 1 3/16″ Wood Stamper.

Stamps: Tiny Words Set used on the 1 3/16″ Wood Stamperby JustRite

Paper: Prism Rose Light and Suede Brown Medium, Preprinted Images from Crafty Secrets – Creative Scraps and Birds and Botanicals Images and Notes

    Hi Sharon,

    I liked this challenge. I have been wanting to make one of these little notepads for my mom for a while but just hadn’t done it. I am giving this to her for Mother’s Day.

    Thanks for another great challenge.
