Sale-A-Bration Hop Day # 3

Welcome back.  I have THREE projects to show you today for day #3.  One project uses a retired set but it is a set I NEVER want to part with.  The other card uses what came in my mailbox yesterday...yeah new toys.  I hope you've arrived here form Jenny's but if you've got lost along the way check out my post on Monday to see a direct link to each of us.
Now onto the projects:
This card is 4 favorite size and an easel card.  The base is Primrose Petals cut out of the scallop square die.  I used the More AMore DSP and the stamp set For the Birds.  I paper pieced the wagon with DSP and added the Hearts Embosslits hearts to fill the wagon.  A little glitter and some Pool Party Bakers Twine to help hold the sentiment from the retired set Loads of Love.  The easel stays open because of the extra DSP strip on the base and some dimensionals on the left over hearts.
To go with it is this clear container made from a recycled SU button container and our window sheets.  Here is a video if you'd like to see an example of how to put one together.  I found it really much easier than in the video.
Then this is my SAB project for today.  I got the Feeling Sentimental set in the mail last night and inked it up this morning.  The DSP is Fan Fair and the color combo is Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler Very Vanilla and soft suede.  I also added the spotch stamp from French Foliage because I goofed and had an extra ink mark but I hope if I hadn't told you that you would not have noticed.
This is my tribute to a city/country I hope to visit while we are overseas and also my new favorite TV show (yes I'm late to the party) Downton Abbey.

I hope you've enjoyed today's projects.  Now hop on over to Tamara's and don't forget to come back tomorrow for our final day of the hop.
