He’ll think I’m mad!

Hi there.  I saw this post over at Dawn McVey’s and thought I’d like to try these little pencil toppers out, they’re so cute. So off I went hunting around the house for a pencil.  I couldn’t find a single cute pencil. We have every type of pencil possible, a propelling this, a fancy that, but no simple basic pencils.  So, on to plan B (because I was definitely making one of these)  A straw!  Yes, a straw and a slight twist on the plan.  I was going to make a funny valentine straw for my hubby instead of my original pencil plan!  Here is the finished project..

Hopefully it will make him smile too when I present it to him in a glass of something.  I think we often take life far too seriously, we need to add in some of that childlike fun back into our lives.  Here’s mine, wish me luck.  He will either think it’s funny or will get me certified as totally mad!  If you don’t hear from me again you’ll know why lol.

For details of the stamp set and Copics I used pop on over to the Make the Day Special blog.
