Happy Birthday To You Week # 3 Winner

Don't we always need a fun gift idea? How about an altered tin for a gift? My Crafter's Companion project today is cute and colorful and ready for a birthday.
I am thrilled to be here today to share one of my favorite things to do -ALTER things!!!
Humphrey EZMount Stamp Set - Catching Up is the perfect choice of stamps to grace my tin. This stamp is from the year with Humphrey.
Using my Spectrum Noir markers I colored this cutie-isn't it adorable? I stamped an extra duck and pail and fussy cut and pop dotted. I decided to pull sheets of stickers from my stash, I had all types of borders and edge pieces.
How about this inside? I decided to mix in a little Popcorn the Bear EZMount Stamp Set - Birthday Hugs.
Isn't he fitting for my birthday tin?
 Here is a close up of this little pair , I love how they turned out.
I even decorated the back of my tin with a big sticker to finish it off.
The best part is I got to use up so many of my unused stash of stickers, and ribbons.
One last look at my decorated tin- sure hope I gave you a little inspiration and a fun way to use these adorable images and many of your unused supplies.

I am entering the following challenges:
Bearly-Mine Challenge-Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew- Dimension
LEJ Designs-Anything But A Card
Top Tip Tuesday-Dig Out The Old (MY RIBBONS)
Use It Tuesday-TWO Hoarded (ribbon and Stickers)
