Friends of Happy Wen!

Love you to Pieces!

This Mo Manning image was perfect to use with the Sweet Stop's Saturday Sketch and to try my hand at a "shaped" easel card (not sure what it's called when the die cuts are the top of the card when it's in easel mode). Today I used my new set of nesties "classic scalloped hearts" and finally picked up some sponge daubers and was able to distress all my edges to my liking with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink "frayed burlap", along with using his designer paper collection "Vintage Shabby". The new Memory Box die "cherish border" I found at Simon Says and purchased it especially for this card - I love it so much, used it on the inside of the card, too :) The little white roses (some colored pink with copics) are from Wild Orchid Crafts along with the heart-shaped stickpin. I did find some "chocolate" chiffon and organza on sale at the fabric store and ya know how I love me some chiffon flowers:) Also followed a wonderful tutorial on You Tube by JenniesBarn to make the spiral roses - I made mine tiny with a 2x2 square - way fun!. Used my Martha Stewart (thank you KathyCan) medium branch punch for my rose wood. This was defintely a project of "love", as it took me all day to do - but a BLAST to make!

Wishing you a happy last week of January!

Hi Wendy, firstly I need to apologise for not commenting on your last few projects. A few people are having problems getting updates in their dashboards of the blogs they follow and sadly I appear to be one of them (bottom lip quivering!). So that is my reason for not popping by. But Im here now so Im off for a wee wander around your blog. This card is so lovely, the image is such a wee cutie. Lee x

Kerry said...

This has got to be one of my most favourite of your cards Wendy! I love the colours and the hearts and that heart's the 2nd time I've seen that tonight and I'm gonna have it even if it kills me trying to find it!!!! xx
