What Do I Want for my Birthday?

Yep, today is my birthday! The big 37! So what do I want for my birthday? Not a whole lot......just a vote! Head on over to the JustRite blog and vote for the project you like best! (I am obviously hoping it is mine! LOL!) I am not usually a lucky person....I don't win at BINGO, lottery cards, or the "big basket" at scrap crops......but I did make it in the top 9 at JustRite! To me that is pretty darn lucky and exciting!

We had to make one alterable project and a card. I decided on a glass Christmas ornament. I used the tiny letters from JustRite to create my own sentiment and then stamped on a transparency with Stazon. I then cut the circle with my Nestibilities. I had to roll it to get it in the ornament. With tweezers I carefully glued the sequins in the center. I wanted to create a "window" effect, so I cut another circle out of paper and very carefully held it to the glass, sprayed adhesive over the entire ornament except for where the paper was. While adhesive was tacky, I sprinkled glitter over it. I added some pretty ribbon, and a few embellishments and it was done. (Like 3 days later.....cuz I putzed and putzed, and agonized and agonized some more!)
The card was created using the tiny letters again from JustRite and inked them with Palette Noir. Then used my Nestibilities for the outside circle and again with a smaller circle for the inside. I threaded the wide ribbon through the circle. Instead of using the word, heart, I decided to punch a heart out and sprinkle it with glitter! The paper is SU! and vintage sheet music.

So please take the time to vote! (And if you're looking for something to "get" me for my birthday.....just vote for me! I will be forever indebted to you! : )
