I used a Stampendous stamp "Music" to stamp onThese are my projects for today, the first one is "Heart Wings" called after the Tim Holtz cutting die of the same name, I used white basic card stock with the next layer white paper embossed with the Cuttlebug embossing folder "Polka Dots" shaded with Memento ink "Rich Cocoa" and I used a piece of currogated cardboard, from a package and distressed it and coloured it with Tim Holtz distress stain "Walnut", I then put two press studs on the top left hand side with Hot Glue and cut out the Heart Wings with two coloured papers which I stuck on with double sided tape, that worked better than the hot glue. I used stickon pearls for the lower left hand accent and the crown., enjoyed making this one, The next one "Dress Form" was made used the basic white card stock and various paperscraps from my scrap basket, and I used a fine point pen to make the faux stitching on the paper, I used a dress form that my friend Meg had sent me, Thank you Meg!!!
the dress form and I found on the Net the Good
Friends saying and I added a pink and black ribbon to tie on the lower part of the card. This was also an enjoyable card to make

In today's project I used a frame that I bought from the op shop in Stockton, for $2.00, it was originally a brownish varnised frame and I came home and sanded it back, and the I used Gesso as a base coat to cover the remaining varnish, and then I found a cream paint (house paint) in a can in the shed, there was only about 2" in the base but it went on really well with a 2-1/2" brush, after it dried I used a designer paper on the back and cut out "inchies" from Jane Tregenza's article in "Scrapbook Creations" magazine issue 91, from sometime in 2011, the article was called "Inchie Board Frame" and she used 144, 1-1/2X 1-1/2" chipboard squares, the photo's I used were recent photos of Dennis and our kids and grandkids, some vintage style lace and ribbon and flowers also a small heart brooch which I had in my scrap stash. I am happy with how this turned out, so I will be making more of these.

This is today's card, inspiration from Tammy Tutterow on the Sizzex blog, she made a beautiful card with all the latest products. I didn't have the Airmail Texture Fades, so used the Pocket Watches Texture fades and shaded them with Tsukineko dew Drop inks - Bahama Blue, Rich Cocoa and Lady Bug, I used the aeroplane from Tim Holtz Visual artistry stamp set "The Journey" and the tickets from "Curious Possibility", I cut the stamp edges with a Birch craft pair of scissors, I used twine from my stash and an odd earring for the tie and the accent, I shaded the edges of the card with Rich Cocoa ink pad.

Here is the four leafed clover that I made to wear to the St.Patrick's lunch I am going to. I stamped out green hearts, four for the bottom layer and four for the top. The lower leaves are dark and the upper light, I used a green gemmed brad for the centre and used green kindyglitz for the sparkle and glued them all together down the centre of the top leaves, I cut out a circle to glue them all onto,(for a base) to hold all the leaves together, and I cut out a small green stem. I glued a brooch fixing on the back so that I can pin in on my clothes. I am happy with this, I think it might work, if it doesn't work, I've got some green ribbon that I will just tie in a bow and wear that.
