Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential: Hats On!!

Stamps: Stampendous 'Contented Mudpie', Papertrey 'Signature Greetings', 'Vintage Labels'. Digital image: Shirley's 2 Girls 'Cheers'. Cardtock: Textured Red, Papertrey white, Bashful Blue, Daisy D 'Paisley Sugarplum'. Accessories: Label One Nestabilities, Bazzill red gingham ribbon, glitter snowflake brads.

This week's Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential Challenge #9 is Hats on! As Vicki describes it: Use hats for your creation or put a hat on something, make your own, use stickers, etc. Just put hats on it!

This little 'Contented Mudpie' is one of my all-time favorite House Mouse images, as is or dressed for the season with a Santa hat I cropped from a fun image 'Cheers' by Shirley's 2 Girls. Before:

And after, with a touch of glitter for good measure:
