I love so many things about Wida's card, starting with the black & white striped panel anchoring her embellishments. The stripes, gold glitter and stacked sentiments inspired my card, which kind of created itself.
I lightly painted the wood sentiment pieces with distress inks to add just a tiny touch of color. Does any remember the movie Truly, Madly, Deeply from the early 90's? It's an old favorite starring my boyfriend, Alan Rickman (please don't tell my other boyfriend Colin Firth about us - it was very awkward when they were both in Love Actually).
This second project is a little gift box I made and filled with crafty bits & pieces for a friend that fled the San Diego wildfires for Texas. Well, that is sort of true - they arrived in Texas with a smokey smelling moving truck after having to pack & leave at the height of the fire. Not because of the fire though, it was a long planned moved and I will miss you at our crafty get togethers and field trips Pat!
For this project I truly dug into my hoard, using a metal handle, hatpin and brad along with an assortment of flowers. I am entering this in the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #8 to use Metal or Glass.
The Dear Husband and I are finally going out for our Anniversary dinner tonight - only 2 weeks late this year :)
Thanks for stopping by,
