Flaunt it Fridays Hello Kitty Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop. If you got here from Carley's Blog then you are in the right spot. If you just so happened to stumble across the hop by visiting my blog and would like to start from the beginning, please go to the Flaunt It Friday's page to start from the beginning.

For this week's challenge we were asked to flaunt the Hello Kitty with Airplane on Page 65 from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cart. I am trying to get a jump start on my Valentine projects so this is what I came up with:

Isn't she just the cutest? I cut out the Hello Kitty in the Plane at 3". Since I was going with a Valentine theme, I covered the star on the plane with a heart from the SU! small heart punch. I chalked some clouds onto my white layer and added Hello Kitty onto the white layer with an action wobble to give her some movement. It's like she's really flying! :) The sentiment was printed out from my computer onto pink card stock and then I just trimmed it to make it look like a flying banner and attached it with some foam adhesive.

For my second project, we got to choose any cut from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge and I chose the HK9 image on page 49 in the handbook. I decided to stick with the Valentine theme and alter a mini paint can filled with some M&M's to give to someone on Valentine's Day. Here it is:

I just love how this turned out and am so pleased with it. Hello Kitty was cut out at 3" and then I stamped the sentiment into the middle of the heart with a SU stamp. I used my nestabilities for the scallop circles on the top of the can and then cut out the heart (from page 52) at 1.25". I then added lots of ribbon to the handle. Chances are pretty good that my son will be giving this to his girlfriend next month. :)

Now onto the blog candy. :) I am going to give away the following to one lucky winner:

Can you tell I am ready for spring? haha! One lucky follower of my blog will receive (pictured above) one butterfly mini album, one pack of fabric pink thickers and one pack of K & Co. stickers. All you need to do is:
