I colored the spools of thread to match my base colors.
The little shears are a die from Provo Craft.

Song Of Spring.

Sunday was one of those days were you sat and wonder,
“What am I going to do today?” Needless to say I started out cleaning off my work area when I came across a plastic box of background techniques that I did sometime ago. I remember at the time I was not all that impressed with the “Background Burst Extension Technique”, but thought I would try this again.
This background just felt “Springy”, with such light soft pastel colors; I could not resist trying it.
My little girl graphic comes from “Artful Illusions” the “Artasia Archives - Little Girls” sheet.
I used a second technique on the musical clef called “Depth of Field”.

This card contains two techniques.
Background Burst Ext. from April 2010
Depth of Field from June 2009.
My stamp credits are
Background stamp from Stampin’ Up
Musical Clef from Hero Arts
Song of Spring from Stampin’ Up.

Thanks so much for visiting me today.

Gessoed Al.

Today I thought I would give Shelly Hickox’s Technique called “Gessoed Al“ a try. You can get the instructions on the Gingersnaps Blog.

Doesn’t this little frame just jump off the page? It is so very rich and full of texture. I added Neutral Shadows around the outer mat.

The little lady graphic is from “Magic Moonlight Graphic’s”.
Stamps credits are, Inkadinkado and Stampin’ Up.
Please stop over to Gingersnap Blog and give this TQ a try.
I’m sure you will love it as much as I do.

Tag Tuesday theme is “Friends”.

Louise at “Kard Krazy” has chosen “Friends”, for our theme this week.

One of my all time Best Friends is my dog. Bandit is always happy, no problems, he just love’s you all the time. Willing to give me kisses, even when I’ve had a very rotten day.

He love’s you no matter what.
Just like the verse states;

“There is nothing better than to end a bad day covered in “Dog Slobber”.

So I found a graphic from “The Graphic Fairy” that I just love.
My stamps are from ”American Art Stamps” , TAC and DOTS.
Remember to stop in at Kard Krazy and take a look at all the beautiful tags. There’s still time to join us. Would love to see what you create with this theme.

Thanks for stopping in, Hug your Dogs.

Waiting for Spring

Now how sweet is this face?
I’ve had this graphic for some time, and for the life of I don’t remember were it came from, but I’m if you looked in Magic Moonlight’s graphic’s you would find it.
Today I am using a new window frame from “Heartfelt Creations”,
its HCD 708 “Fancy Window Frame”.
I cut two frames apart to make this one.
Using Victorian Velvet distress ink to add color and highlights.
Wow what a neat frame.
My only stamp used is from Inkadinkado, the technique I used is Neutral Shadows from the T.J. newsletter.

Have a wonderful week-end, thanks for popping in today.
