Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions Grand Opening Hop

Welcome to the Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions Grand-Opening Hop!
I'd like to give a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Beckie for including me in her Grand Opening Hop!
You should have landed here after visiting with Lisa
Doesn't she just knock your socks off with her talented self?

As you hop along each stop will be showcasing items that can be found in the NEW Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions online store.
The Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions store focuses mainly on brads and eyelets. However, it does have a few other crafty notions that you can't live without, along with being very proud to carry May Arts ribbon.

Now on to my creations.
Not one, but TWO projects with Sparkly Sweet goodies... 
WHO... I mean HOO doesn't love an adorable owl?
I created a little owl tag with lots of paper layers, attached that fab ribbon & twine to that super dooper paper clip and there she is!  
This would be so cute for a teacher gift or back to school book mark don't you think? 

I just LOVE the expression on this little lady's face!
Part two..
Sorry if I'm over loading you with pictures. 
I'm kind of a {photo} nut...  

A few little messages in a bottle jar!
I saw this in a crafting catalog and had to try it. 
I used one of my canning jars and created these darling little notes to go inside.  They are fairly small but make a huge statement with these CUTE owl brads! 
The cards measure approx 2" X 3.5" and have teeny matching envelopes as well. I added some crinkle ribbon to the outside of the jar along with the twine from Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions to tie on that blingy button. 
I think the clear button goes nicely with the jar. 
That's it for me... thanks for stoppin'! 
Enjoy the rest of the hop...once you leave here you should be heading over to the oh so talented Migdalia!
