The current challenge over at the SCS Crafty Secret's Forum
was to create something green! So of course I immediately thought of St. Patrick's Day. I used this gorgeous image from the Seasonal booklet
. I used a Tattered Angels frame and covered it with a fine glitter. It is a mixture of golds and greens. It matched perfectly with this paper from Melissa Frances. I did a bit of layering and added silk ribbon that I ordered off the Internet awhile back.
I made my own 4 leaf clover with a heart shaped punch. I dabbed Versamark on each heart, and sprinkled with gold embossing powder. I glued all 4 hearts together and hand cut the stem. I added a tiny button by Lasting Impressions, tied with string, to the center.
I am slowly getting back into my crafting groove......it has been hard to get the ole' mojo back after spending time off for my class and such. Sometimes at night, when I have the time to craft, I am just too darn tired! Then I end up reading for a bit instead. It will come back......hopefully!
My time blog hopping has been limited too.......life just seems to get so busy at times! The computer takes a backseat.....which is a good thing I guess.....but I miss visiting you! Maybe someone can invent a 30 hour day???? : )
Have a wonderful HUMP DAY!!! OH! and thanks for the funny pet stories! This one was the funniest to me:
"The pictures of those dirty paws is just priceless. One time my chocolate lab tried to make off with one of the tennis balls on my SIL's Dad's walker! She was quite surprised when the whole walker came with it!" Pam
