Altered Canvas with a Vintage Look

I just realized that I forgot to post this before Christmas. I made this altered canvas for my Mum who loves daisies.  Some wall art for her crafty space.

I used some pretty lace, pages from a old novel and some vintage sheet music along with beautiful patterned paper, and some paper daisy flowers.  I stamped the flourish on the bottom and stamped and embossed the doilies in white. I distressed the canvas with Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink after mod podging everything on.
I free-hand wrote the verse in black gel pen, which reads, "Enjoy the little thinks in life...for one day you'll look back and realize they were the Big things."

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Masculine Birthday Wishes

I'm sharing a masculine birthday card with you today for my wonderful hubby's birthday this weekend. Happy Birthday, Jim!  :)

I used some beautiful patterned papers from a DCWV paper pad I got for Christmas from my youngest daughter.  She has good taste in paper...makes her Mama proud!  :) The 'Happy Birthday' stamp is from Impression Obsession and the ornate frame is from the Bonjour stamp set by KaiserCraft.

 Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Angel Christmas Ornament

I have a Christmas ornament to share with you today.  I used the small version of Butterfly Kiss by The Stampsmith.  I found these cute charms recently and I hand crimped additional extender rings to them and attached them to the Shapabilities diecut by Spellbinders. I used three diecuts, one rotated green layer sandwiched between two cream layers.  I added some pearl embellies to go with the pearl charms and tied a matching green ribbon to the top for hanging.

I know I've been really absent over the past year.  My health has not been good and I haven't been up to crafting, but I hope to be on here more in the coming months, let's hope a new year brings good health!  :)

Thanks for stoppin' by!
