Stick it...

Good morning everyone!

I have been able to get into a few swaps lately, to whittle away the time while King Mufasa is away. His father's surgery is supposed to happen today so I should know when he calls in a few hours what the status is.

For this pin swap on "Scraps of Color", the swap was to make a dozen pins; three for each person in a group of four with a "Spring" theme.

I used these stick pins from Pizzazz Aplenty. These lovely pins were included as a freebie from Judy, already in colors I loved so I didn't have to color a thing!

Here's a picture of all the pins. Those butterflies I bought at Pizzazz Aplenty worked perfectly for the spring theme.

Each pin had to packaged so that it would not "stick" the hostess or the receiver of the pins. I placed each pin in a cosmetic sponge that I had cut. I adhered these on a card stock that I had punched with one of MS's borders.

Then I finished the decoration of the package with embossed butterflies that matched the pins in that package. Don't they make you think of spring? I hope you like them

I am entering these into the following challenges (as listed on Feline Playful):

**Catch the Bug Challenge** - Anything Goes
**Easy Craft Projects** - Green (the green pins)
**Send a Smile for Kids** - Anything Goes
**Digi's with Attitude** - Anything Goes
**Fairy Knoll** - Think Spring
**Miami Doodles** - Monochromatic green (the green pins)
**Stampin' for the Weekend** - Springtime

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting! :-)
