Dream Valley Challenge #8: Stamp Something

Good evening (although it's almost midnight here, I guess good night? I wouldn't know how to greet someone at this hour!) I haven't been here in so long, and it has been soooooo hard. Crafting is my life, and when I am not able to do it due to my duties as a mom, friend, or wife, I just don't feel myself.

I am late posting this challenge due to some personal issues that came up in the life of a friend, but I'm happy to announce that I'm back on track. This Dream Valley Challenge is sponsored by:

Our challenge this time around is to use a stamp. Simple, and perfect for this busy time of year. I decided to make myself a pretty little box to store my pens, pencils, and glue sticks in. I was using a baby food jar for the longest time, I think about 8 years or so, and decided it was getting cramped. I pulled out my Ultimate Crafter's Companion tool and Boxer Board to make a little box. I just love how easy that little thing is! I even sized it up to the proper dimensions all by myself *gasp*
After I made the box, I adhered ribbon to the bottom edge, and stamped flowers on cardstock, finishing them off with some Stickles. I love sparkle, so of course I'll love this on my desk :)

That's all for now, but tomorrow I have a really cute creation to share. You have until the 11th to enter over at Dream Valley Challenges, so get your creation entered today!

Great idea. I have a lot of pens in old jam jars! This is so much prettier.
