Paint Chip Tilda

While I was in my girly mode the other day, I also created this card for a paint chip I am participating in. She is headed off in the mail today to her new owner. As far as I know, she doesn't read my blog so it should be safe to post it here. Where's the paint chip? All the little punched hearts are from a paint chip. I used a nested heart Nestabilities die to punch the hearts and then added some stickles around the edges. I see the small one in the front looks a little gloppy, but it really isn't....just a subtle sparkle. The papers are from Close To My Heart. There is a little paper doily behind my image layers. I sponged it with distress inks to tone it down a little. Thanks for stopping in today!!

Masculine Monday

The Totally Stampalicious challenge this week is to make a masculine card. Like most of the DT, I used Mr. Fix It to make my card. I love this image and all the cute sayings that come with him. I dug into the scrap pile and neglected supplies to make this one. I completely forgot that I had these screw head brads! The paper has the texture of crackled paint and was purchased from a local store's clearance bin about 8 years ago.

soft and girly

I have a confession to make...I am a terrible hoarder when it comes to my paper crafting supplies! I bought this paper (Kaiser Craft) ages ago and had never used it. Such is the case with so many of the beautiful papers I have purchased. One of the things I have been determined to do is use some of the beautiful things I have bought and share them with others in the form of cards and other projects.
I had a need to break out the cute and girly stamps I have and this sweet girl (Daisy by Sugar Nellie) is one of my absolute favorite images. She reminds me of my granddaughter with the the soft curls in her hair and her thoughtful expression. Even at not quite three years, Kyli can be a very serious and thoughtful little lady at times.
Thanks for stopping in today. I have a busy day ahead. There is a yard sale at the LSS (Priceless) where I will have a table to sell off some of the supplies I have outgrown over the years. Who knows, maybe I'll pick up a couple of bargains along the way. Then it's dinner out with the family for mine and hubby's 21st wedding anniversary.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping in!
