SQUEAK....
Just making it in time.  I'm usually done before now.  But since returning from Disney I've had a pretty bad cold...BOO!  I'm slowly improving and yes there is a box of tissue on my desk to get me through.
 
 
I was digging around all my metal bits and found my heart key.  I knew it was somewhere!  I distressed the key with picket fence and used some copper wire to attach a wee heart.

 
I attached the metal frame and distressed with more picket fence.  I cut the small movers and shapers hear with burlap and stained with some barn door.  I attached with my tiny attacher.  I don't sew!
 
 
I snipped a little more burlap and attached again...without sewing.

 
I followed the fun technique with glue n' seal, picket fence and distress marker.

 
I spritzed with black soot distress marker.  Looks grungy!

 
Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek!  Sorry I'm so late posting.
 
Have a great weekend!

  5. Nicole, I am loving your Tim tag! So happy you were able to get it done it time! Great idea to use the heart key in place of the arrow! And the burlap is right up my alley! Get to feeling better, OK?

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
