Popsical stick background! + Winners!!!

Happy Friday!!!
I am completely rested, slept a full 8 hours and a beautiful evening with my friend Kelly decorating for Terrifically Talented Theresa's Surprise Birthday Party Sunday...I can't wait to show you what we have come up with!!! , eeeek!!!! 
Update on Michael:
Michael has a chest infection which is why it is taking him longer to heal, he deals with it all so well...but boys he is sick!
Today I am so excited to show you the gift I made for Troy for his birthday!  (which was on the 7th)He doesn't have much on his wall in his office at work so I thought this would make a spot come to life  and he would have a quote to go by everyday!
He loved it!!!!
I made the popsical background by inking around each popsical stick with black distress ink, I lined them up perfectly and with my wooden block word stamp... (wasn't easy, I was ready to go to the garage and borrow clamps, ) Next I stamped the weeds on using stazon black ink.. then stamped my bamboo stamp with black distress ink..only this time I stamped on paper first to give it a muted look. I made the acetate background using Spectrum Noir Pens and alcohol blending solution. The sentiment on the actetate reads " Never regret anything that made you laugh" hehe!

The H-Birthday Tag came from a new pair of  Michael's Jeans

This locket was silver, I used bronze UTTE to change it!

I heat embossed the actetate paper to make it bubble and attached it using a black eyelet!

The winner of yesterday's little adventure is !!!!!!

Last week a friend of mine "Christina" from Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls made a mini book embellishment for her card and I fell in love with the idea and had to try it out. All I did was cut 5 pieces of the Spellbinders small scalloped square... I folded each in half and then opened to create the crease for the middle of the book...I stamped with my wooden writing block, inked the edges and added a piece of string (frayed at the end) as a bookmark... I also put recollections small pearls down the center.  View the close up view below, I will be making more of these!
 The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts , I used lace stickles on them to give them a little sparkle

All lace and bling used  is from Recollections
Have a fantastic day!!!!

Happy Monday!!!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, unfortunately Michael and I have come down with a bad cold , yet I was able to totally revamp my crafting room!! We also celebrated Troy's birthday by having family and friends over. We shared a beautiful meal together and ate lots of dessert!, we had rhubarb &Strawberry pie , ice cream cake and our first order of donuts from the New Tim Horton's that just opened in our small town!!! 
Today I am linking up for Alley Way Challenge Be Inspired # 25!!! Go HERE if you want to play along!!! Use the picture to inspire you and use one of Alley Way Stamps, if you don't have one go to their freebies section to get one, that's it!

Here is my card!!
I was inspired by the dots and the color pink in the inspiration photo. The pink boarder is also from Alley way stamp set I purchased called "Awesome Blossom"

I paper pieced the butterfly and used spectrum Noir pens to color her body

I used mini glass beads over the sentiment which was free as well! 

Have a great day, I am off to see you all!!!
