I was inspired by a card Melody Lane did on YouTube. This just made me think of when my kids where little and maybe what a chocolate bunny would see from inside an Easter basket.  This is my take on it.

Mother’s Day

Scabby Chic
I finally got some time and after my last posting I got inspired to do a mother’s day card.  For this card I used Georgia Pacific white cardstock for the base at a standard size A2.  The designer papers are from MME 6x6 packs Ramble Rose and Market.  I use Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye to ink the edges.  The flower is from Recollections and the butterfly is from Ashland.  The stamp is from Cardz TV Stamps “Happy Day”.  I used VersaMark Dazzle ink and Recollections Snow embossing powder.   The tag on this car I made at  4” x 2.5”.  This was a very simple card to make and would be easy to reproduce.  Hope you enjoy please leave comments would love to here from you.  Hugs xxx.

Shabby Chic Canvas



Hello Everyone,

Sorry it’s been so long since I posted.  I have just had a lot going at home lately.  I did find a little bit of time to try my hand at some mix media for the first time.  I think it turned out really well.  I had a lot of fun doing this project and am very pleased with the way it turned out.  Everything I used was just from my stash except for the canvas and I got a great deal on them.   I got the canvas from Michaels along with the frame.  The flowers are Recollections and the gears are from a broken toy car from my grandson.  The beads are from some old jewelry that I no longer used so I put it to good use.  I use Claudine Hellmuth  gesso as a primer and Apple Barrel acrylic paint in a cream color.   The pink acrylic bird and butterfly I from Wal-Mart along with the bird cage embellishment.  I also have a lace from Wal-Mart that I have used for texture.  I have really enjoyed do this form of crafts and hope you enjoy and give it a try.  Thanks for stopping by, Hugs xxxx.
