Is it still hot in your neck of the woods? Is has been super hot and muggy here most of the summer, so I am actually looking forward to fall! I have gotten behind on my gardening, 'cause I'm just too much of a wimp to work out in this heat! So I've been spending lots of time indoors crafting and blogging. Ok, probably more blogging than I should! ha!
Thought I would share with you a card I made a few weeks ago for my SIL's birthday. Of course, I went on over to the Graphic's Fairy for this sweet little bird image.
Next came the fun part....embellishing! I like adding silk flowers, but it seems like the ones in the papercrafting section of any crafts store are just way over priced! So, I just picked up some stems of silk flowers, then removed all of the petals. One stem goes a long way! I used "zots" to adhere them, and added a tiny drop of craft glue to the center, followed by a little rhinestone for some bling!
I am counting down the days til this Friday, as that's the first day of "Michigan's Longest Garage Sale", right here in our area! I can hardly wait! Hope you all are having a great day!
Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
