I also made the "smile" button to go with this awesome new paper, (from my Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit!) I used my copics to color the Rainer cherries, which by the way are my favorite type of cherries:):) My husband said they look like peaches:):), oh well......
And last but not least, I added some stitches to the panels.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I LOVE, LOVE all thing s vintage, and have a hard time doing anything else! So I just embraced it. This sentiment is special to me, we have to believe in ourselves and our abilites, and just go with it! These background stamps are from Ellen Hutson, I just got them and can't for the life of me remember their names...one is vintage text, I think, and the other is art nouveau, I don't know.....That's the only bad thing about unmounted stamps that don't come with a labeled index card. Anyhoo, back to the deets:) The main sentiment is a old rub-on from my stash, that I enhanced with my copics, the flower and leaves are Prima, the bottom panel uses part of a masked stencil image. (I did all that work, and you can't even tell:) The stencil is from Tim Holtz, and I created the masking with Shimmer Spritz. I even used Shimmerz paint "Angel Wings" to go over the rub-on to give it some glitz, (darn, it doesn't show up in the pic). The ruffled ribbon is from my stash, and it's sewn down with one of my favorite stitches. The pearl was bright white, (a little too bright), so I used my copic marker, and blender pen to tone it down and antique it! Thank you so much for stopping by:)
And to all my fellow Edward fans...... 2 MORE DAYS!!! WAHOOOOOOOO:):)
My daughter and I have tickets for the 12:25 showing on THURSDAY!!! Yippeee:):):)

on Lake Conroe! Everyone, but me was quilting away, I made BUTTONS:):):)
It's been years since I've been able to go, and so good to catch up with everyone:) These ladies are so uber talented!!! To just be surrounded by such talent is a huge dose of inspiration!!! I designed this button set from a swatch of fabric from my friend Mary's stash!!!! And will post some soon that were inspired from a painting that was in our lunch restaurant!
Have you noticed my new bog look? What do you think? Leave me some feedback in the comments or in the new chat box! Mom and I have decided to try our hand at an Etsy store. She will create handmade, handsewn embellishments, and I'll create buttons!! If you havn't ever shopped Etsy, check it out! We love the idea of supporting other artisans! Oh, I'll be posting some blog candy soon, so stay tuned!!!
