thinking of you

Click HERE for my Seasons Givings Blog post.


How was your New Years?

Ours was quiet, like I like it:)


Using a vintage heart doily....lotsa liquid pearls...sheesh, not quite patient enough for it to dry!


I was going to use a vellum banner for my sentiment but then decided it needed some veneer.


Can you recognize the floral stamps?


Fresh ink:
Turquoise
Red Currant
Mango
Celery

MME Enamel dots

I was inspired by

Paper Smooches Sparks
Anything Goes

  9. I just bought me some of those wooden tags - I best get them out huh?!?!! This is so colorful with your sweet little blooms Amy - I knew right away what inspired you - we had a quiet New Years as well - with Kent just one week out from his shoulder surgery - he's still snoozing a lot - and right now we're in the middle of a snow storm - expecting a foot by tomorrow morning! Glad I'm on vacation this week!!
