Have a great Tuesday!

Hi everyone! Due to so many ongoing projects, I apologize for not posting earlier. I am in waaay too many swaps. :D
One of the projects is an altered paint can for a Secret Sister swap. I made this one for Christmas for a friend:
It's so easy, I think it took me about 10 minutes. The can was purchased at Michaels for $2. All I did was run a red piece of cardstock and a white piece of cardstock through the CB with the swirl folder. I added maribou on the top and bottom and the ribbon is attached with hardware. I hope to be done with her Valentine paint can soon as this swap due date is quickly approaching!
I hope you decide to come back tomorrow as I have something really special in store. It's normally my "What's Going On?" Wednesday. I still want to hear your plans for the short week, but in addition to that, I have an exciting surprise that I am already smiling about.
Don't forget that the Special Challenge is still going on! It's the first challenge that I am hosting. All you have to do is create a card that is inspired by a kid's movie, character, book or tv show, but DO NOT use the character anywhere on it. If you have access to SCS then please upload it into the gallery under the name BLOGC1 for everyone to see. You have until Friday at midnight (Pacific Time) and the winner will be announced here Saturday at noon.
I also found an AWESOME little project going on Jen's blog. It is amazing and such a nice gesture to Dallas Baptist University's visiting students! Go and check it out before the 31st!!
Happy evening to you all!
*Love and Aloha*
