Valentine Gift

Here is the gift that I made for my husband for Valentine's Day this year. We had some family photos taken between Christmas and New Year's and there were a few shots of Josh and I that were really good. Those of you who have (younger) children will understand when I say that I don't remember the last time I had a great picture of just my husband and I. We have three kids, have been married for 13 years and I am still amazed at how blessed I am to have him as my partner and best friend. Mushy enough for you? So, now for the details...

Love Letter DSP

Basic Pearls

Basic Black Cardstock

8x8 shadow box frame

wool felt

Have a great day!

I'm posting, can you believe it?

I know, you thought I fell off the face of the earth. Well, I was just busy and blogging is not my #1 priority. I am going to try to do better, not sure exactly how often that will be. I am posting a card that my "club girls" made a week and a half ago. The flower is made out of fabric that I "starched" with a mixture of water and Crystal Effects. What can't you do with Crystal Effects? We also made a pin cushion jar out of a canning jar. Everyone loved both of the projects.

All supplies used are Stampin' Up!

Stamp Sets: Bliss (current SAB) and Thank You Kindly Paper: Crumb Cake Ink: Kiwi Kiss (retired), Not Quite Navy Chocolate Chip marker (usd with Spritzer Tool) and Crumb Cake (used with dauber on the "frame" of the card) Accessories: Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric, Springtime Vintage Big Designer Buttons (Pear Pizzazz), Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and the Big Shot (of course) Thanks for looking and have a great day!
