Peachy Keen Challenge--and a treat for a Friend

Hi, everyone!  Things have settled down here a little bit, so I got to take some "scrapportunities" for working on some challenges!  The Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge is due tomorrow, and I had a blast working on this one!  It was to make a project using a soup can.  With Teacher's Appreciation Week here and Mother's Day coming up, this has been a great inspiration to me!  My can is for a friend for Mother's Day.

I already had the peppermint candy here; I had planned on making up my own sentiment, something to play on the word "mint," but it's so easy to just stamp a sentiment, isn't it?  I love Joy's Life stamps--most are really "punny," and they stamp really well.  This one is from the "Yummy Puns" set.  You can find all of the Joy's Life stamps here.

I cut the paper peppermint from the Cricut "Sweet Shop" lite cartridge.  And then I stamped the Peachy Keen happy face from the "Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment" PK-450.  You can find them here.

It was fun to upcycle a can for my treat holder!  I'm going to enter this in the Peachy Keen Challenge #16; you can find it here.
