Pink Birthday Card

Hi everyone!  We had a small amount of snow last night but it is already melting fast.  Temps are supposed to soar into the 70s this week for a couple of days.  Not liking this!  Anyway, just a short post today.


This card was made for a dear friend's birthday.  The papers are from Pion Design and the edges were distressed.  Ruffle trim, lace and pearls were added on the lower half.  The flowers are from www.craftycity.com.  I love the sweet diecuts as accents.  The rhinestone type stickers are from Recollections. 


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate the kind comments you leave.  I wish a wonderful week ahead for everyone!

Love Card

Hi there!  We are having heavy rain today--why can't it be snow?  Just about every time precipitation moves into the area, the temperature goes up and we get rain.  As soon as it leaves, the temperatures get cold again. 

Valentine's Day is this Wednesday and I put together a quick card for the occasion.  I hope you like it.


When I saw this die and embossing folder set by Recollections, I just had to get it.  I began by layering pattern paper from an older line by Recollections onto red cardstock which, in turn, was set onto a white card base.  The sweet image from My Besties was colored with Copic markers and attached to the card with foam squares.  I applied a bit of Glossy Accents to her eye and some Stickles to her flowers.  A piece of white hemp was threaded through the banner and accented with gold enamel dots.  The embossed heart, also included in the set, was cut from the same red cardstock as the banner.  I used the X's and hearts from the banner at the bottom of the card.

There you have it.  Just a short post from me today.  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by.  I appreciate all your sweet comments.  I hope the week ahead is a wonderful one for everyone.  Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Altered Vintage Heart

Hi there!  Are you watching the Super Bowl today?  Things in my neck of the wood are all pro Eagles.  I must say I am not particularly an Eagles fan.  I do not plan on watching the game but will probably tune into the Half-Time Show.

My project share today is a vintage heart I made for a swap.  I free cut the heart shape from a cardboard shipping box.  Both sides were then covered with paper from K&Co.  The edges were inked and distressed.  I then covered the side edges with a flatback pink pearl trim.  A small ruffled fabric trim outlines the heart shape.  Next, lace trim, a doily, a charm, fabric rosettes and vintage buttons were added.  On the right side, I placed a photo of a young girl and inked/distressed the edges.  Tea-stained twill from Melissa Phillips was then tied around the heart.


On the back of the heart, I placed a braided trim for hanging accented with two vintage buttons and hemp bows.  I saw this idea on You Tube as an alternate way to hand something but I don't remember whose channel it was.


This heart came together quite easily.  It isn't very big--probably about 6 inches wide.  I meant to measure it before I mailed it.


Thank you so much for taking time to stop by my blog and for the kind comments you leave.  I appreciate each one.  Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
