Twilight... on a Saturday night?!?!

I hope that everyone is having a good weekend :)

I am still trying to get rid of this ridiculous cold that claims to have permanently moved into my head! Sheesh!
No, it's not Tuesday ;) I know that my Twilight stuff is usually showcased on Tuesdays, lol!, but it's my blog and I can do what I want to :D hee, hee!
I have had this lil BasicGrey Lunch Pail sitting on my shelf for months now - empty and naked... collecting dust... and I saw a pic of a similar lunch pail in a scrapbook that my sister gave to me... some ideas clicked around in my head... and here is what I came up with :)

My very own Twilight Card Tin... I finally have a spot to store my Twilight cards!!!
I've been hording this paper forever!!! It's even prettier in person! It's by Cloud9Design (Sparkle Wedding Romance DP) - a division of Fiskars! Yea, I didn't know that either ;)
My little sis gave me some beautiful new Primas (Belle Fleurs)... the sparkly lettering is from Making Memories (Shimmer Alpha Stickers)... dew drops are the perfect touch to everything ;)
Could this be Bella before her transformation??? lol!, 'cause I know afterwards her eyesight is perfect... Magnolia Study Tilda stamp - I colored her in with my copics and spica glitter markers... gold, white and silver ribbons also from Prima.
Here I used Prima Black Diamond Fabric Fancies with All Natural Accent Red Roses and Red Hibiscus flowers that I got from Little C's - I personally think it's a beautiful combo ;) lol!
Now I have a spot to hang my key chain to ;) I added some ribbons (misc.) and fibers (EK Success)...
... side view
... back view... wire black/white/gold ribbon from Michael's dollar bin.
Almost done...
I found these really cool Making Memories frames and just had to have them...
I finally made some Thank You cards with them...
Beautiful... right? lol! I know what y'all are thinking ;)
Frame Card Details:
Stamp(s): ~
Paper: Bazzill CS, Pink Mini Dots Faux Suede DP
Ink: ~
Accessories: All Natural Accents Red Roses and Red Hibiscus flowers, Making Memories Sabrina Vintage frames, Making Memories Chloe's Closet frames, Silver CS from UK, Prima Black Diamond flowers, Darice self-stick gems, Fiskar Lace corner punch.
Thanks for stopping by :)
We are expecting a snowstorm tomorrow night! eek! Just when I thought that spring was around the corner...
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
