Happy Monday!!!

This is going to be a super short week for me (Canada Day is Wednesday and I'm off Thursday and Friday)...

so excited but a tad bit stressed, I have to squeeze in 5 days work in 2 days..GASP!!!

Here's a cute little card I made for the Cornish Heritage Farms Summer stamp contest. You can see all the deets HERE

I am a HUGE fan of Kim Hughes' stamps, this set I borrowed from my girl Avril!

I coloured the mail image with copics then masked the waves and tree and chalked the background. I even used some cork for sand!

Caardvarks Depth perception

Gotta say I had so much fun making this one!!!

I started this one Friday at Avrils and finished it on the weekend!!!

My son's girlfriend loves Sassafras paper especially this whale pattern, It was her birthday so I made this for her.

She loved this!!!

It just so happens to fit with the 3-D challenge going on at CAARDVARKS .

I hand cut all the waves and layered them with dimensionals, embossed the clouds and popped one up too.

I know I know no sentiment...but what the hell....

shadow box...ing

Hey all!!

Just wanted to share something cool I made this past weekend. This fits in with the MOXIE FAB challenge but it was not made for that...LOL

My friend at work is renovating a 150 year old farm house.

This wallpaper is what was on the walls, she thinks its the original...way cool huh.

She was able to salvage a piece and some really cool square nails, she asked me to make something with them...uh...okie dokie...

This is what i came up with. I found this nice shadow box with a really "FUGLY" print. I dissected it and mounted the wallpaper to the print.

I found some really cool dried grassy stuff which matched PERFECT.
I added a nice big prima and a small jar for the nails.

My friend LOOOOVED it.
