InSyle Stamps Blog Hop!

It's a late posting for me today, I woke up with a sore throat, headache and a runny nose. What a way to wake up in the morning. Anyhoo, it's my first blog hop with In Style Stamps that starts today and ends on Saturday at midnight. A winner will be chosen on Sunday.
Here is how it will go:
1. First, prizes will be given out throughout the blog hop thread in the forum, so click HERE and then to the forum.

2. Check out the ISS blog to see all the projects from the DT members and vote for your favorite one. The designer with the most votes will win a prize!! (Hint, hint..)

3. After you vote, be sure to leave a comment on that blog post in order to be in the running for the grand prize!! (YOU can win too!)

What the designers had to do was base their project around the theme of "contain yourself" . So I decided to use a simple container that you can buy in the store (glad ware) and dress it up. In this case I filled it up with some puppy treats and used this cute doggie from InStyle and made a belly band to decorate. Along with that I created a card to match.
Here is a side view of the container and the belly band that I used to wrap around it. Since the treats are for a puppy I decorated the belly band and made it look like a collar. So to create that effect, I got my crop-a-dile, punched some holes, then added the silver eyelets to make that collar look. Then I added my image of the dog as a topper. Isn't he cute!! He's got a treat tied to his tail!
Since the treats will be going to our family dog who lives with my parents, I made a card that will be written to her from my little puppy that lives with my hubby and I. Just something fun! =)
Here is what they both look like side by side. I love making sets of things that match. For the card, I have also made a band to go across and have added eyelets to it too. This time instead of using silver eyelets, I opted to use black eyelets and in a smaller version to match the size of the card. I also found a sentiment from a stampin' up set and added it in the center.
I have a feeling this may be the simplest project made by the DT and hope that it's not a bad thing.
Don't forget that In Style Stamps is also having a huge sale of 20% off until April 30th!! This does exclude copics pens. When checking out, please be sure to place my name Jodi-Ann in the comment box so you can get the discount and use the code ISSA 20009.
