Hi there,

Last night I felt like creating a little something for a special place on my girls’ wall. So, I decided to alter a puzzle that I found at Michael’s. The overall size is 5 1/4 X 5 1/4. I had some of this lovely My Mind’s Eye from my girlfriend's shop, “Southern Scrapbooks” in Fort Mill, SC. I really love this little collection, and it was a perfect choice to use with my little birdcage that I had from a prior project.

Treasure I

Supplies- Patterned Paper and Coordinating Elements: My Mind’s Eye (Fine and Dandy); Cardstock: Bazzill; Stamp: Papertrey Ink; Flowers: Prima; Centers: Recollections; Birdcage: Cricut Cartridge (Serenade); Ink: Tim Holtz (Walnut Distress Ink), Copic Marker E79.

Thanks for stopping by,

Really enjoyed that Snow…

Hi there,

We were hammered with snow earlier this week. It was absolutely beautiful. I was able to take some shots to create cards with.  Have to love photo ops….:) The following shots were taken and converted to Sepia, matted  with some black Bazzill cardstock, and adhered to a cream cardstock base.  I usually create photo cards using my Lillies in the Spring, but couldn’t pass up this snow…:) These particular photo cards will be awesome for just about any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by today  and Have a Great Weekend!

Hugs, K
