Hi there! Happy Wednesday! It was so dreary and yucky here today that it was almost depressing! I usually don't mind days like that but today was kind of a downer. Hoping for some sunshine real soon! Coooome on Vitamin D! :)
I have a couple of projects to share with you today! The first one is of a sign I made for hubby's aunt and uncle. They are some of the most wonderful people on earth and they have been like surrogate grandparents to my kids! I just love them! We always celebrate Christmas with them post Christmas and due to illness this year we celebrated late (Sunday!). They are both very crafty and appreciate handmade things so I wanted their gift to be handmade (which to me also = heartmade!) It was a hit! I used my Cricut to cut the letters of their name and added some flowers and leaves cut with my SU! die. I popped the whole thing in a frame and it was ready to go!
The next thing is a card that I made for my daughter's boyfriend. He had a birthday recently and we threw him a little party complete with dinner, fun gifts and his favorite cake! He likes dragons so I dug out my only dragon stamp for his card! Now this card came out really cute in person, but try and try as I might I just could not get it to photograph well! I was so frustrated that I almost did not share it! I drew the little gravel road and sponged it with SU! Going Gray. Then I stamped the castle and water colored it. I sponged SU! Tempting Turquoise for the sky and then water colored and added the dragon on pop dots. I cut into the image at the wings so they folded out! Cool boy thing! I am telling you though...totally cute in person, but only mediocre in the picture! Grrrr! He really liked it though! Here it is:
Hope that you had a good day! I will be back soonest with more fun stuff to share! :) Nighty night!
