UFO Convention

Hello.  Welcome.  Dreams can be a good thing and sometimes they even come true.  Sometimes I imagine traveling around the world visiting all the crafty friends I have only met online.  Sometimes I dream of opening the door to my craft room to find that santa's elves have found a spare hour and tidied it all away and polished the silver.  Sometimes I hope that there will be so many UFO's that they collide and magically become a thing.  Ah well, one out of three ain't bad.........

I stamped this sweet image for the coffee lovers hop but it never got used.  It's a stamp from Power Poppy's Short Stacks set.  I stamped it on some paper that had gold foil on it, embossed with black powder, coloured with promarkers and fussy cut.  

I was going to cover some small pillow boxes for some small gifts, but since this paper was a good weigh I decided to use the pillow box as a pattern and make my own.  I added a circle of patterned paper and the stack of cups.  Not patterns and colours I would usually try to use together but I think it works.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
