This tag has been sitting on my desk for a week half-completed. Today, I finally got back to my craft table to finish it off.
The background is inked, sprayed and embossed. I used a Tattered Angels heart stamp that has been sprayed and gold heat embossed. The key and flourish are painted grungeboard. The rest of the stamps are from Tim’s steampunk set.
Well, thank you for taking a look.

I have finally had time to indulge in Pin interest. Can I just say it is addicting and fun. I love how you can search through pictures, click on the one you like and go right to the website of origin. I love that you can put pictures of all different subjects together on one board.
I found this awesome Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake on Pin Interest. I had it ready for hubby when he and the little men came home from church this afternoon.
Hope you find some yummy things to make this week, edible or non-edible.
First off, I have been out of touch with everyone because I been in bed sick since Saturday. Stuff like the chills, sweating, sore throat, vomiting, muscle aches and a high fever. I thought I was feeling better and then this morning around 12:30 am I woke up drenched in sweat and my throat was on fire when I swallowed. I am a RN so I couldn’t resist the urge to pull out my flashlight and wouldn’t you know… I had a whole field of white stuff growing in the back of my throat. I was going to look for a cool picture online to share but that might be too much for some of you. Needless to say, I went to the Dr. and he said it is my tonsils or mono. I find out tomorrow. I cannot imagine all the mothers out there that have a family, a job and are living with mono. I have had a few days of this and I am already thanking the Lord for my health and that of my family. How blessed I am!! I know this is a bit out of my normal topics but just some encouragment to be thankful for your health & family.
Here is a little card to share that I made a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes, I keep projects hidden until moments like this pop up. I am missing my craft room so much but until I get better I will just have to dream of my projects from bed. Goodness knows I have plenty of time. Also, I am psyched about my Christy Tomlinson mixed media kit coming any day now. Have any of you tried a kit club? This will be my first. I would like to hear any reccomendations.
Thank you for reading my out of the ordinary post. I do hope I did not gross anyone out. Enjoy your week and SMILE!
Greetings everyone! I hope your Thursday has been enjoyable. Today, I want to share the second set of pages I have completed in my altered book.
This first image is by June at Dezinaworld. I love it! I used some gears, beads and TH stamps.
I really wanted a dressform on at least one page so I used a side facing form from Graphic’s Fairy. I layered the skirt with lace, butterflies, glitter, beads, gears, a word stick and some tulle. The whole background was white and cream with black stamping. In the end, I thought the images just seemed to fade into it, so I went back and added some turquoise. My eye likes it a bit better.
Lastly, I would like to share an amazing gift that I won in a giveaway!
Pat, at Art 4 Liberty had a giveaway in which I won this amazing piece. I loved it so much I wore it around all weekend. I was cleaning, baking and doing things around the house but I just could not take it off! I am in love with this pendant. Hop on over to Pat’s blog and look around. Thanks, Pat!
I am so excited to make Grungy Monday this week. As you know, WordPress had some glitches which prevented me from participating last week. The theme is ‘Love Tim Holtz Style.’
I had fun using all my new grungeboard shapes. What awesome stuff. Can’t believe I have made it this far without them. I am discovering a whole new world of products and techniques this year.
There is not much to tell about what I did (actually, I am just feeling too tired to write it all) but the short version is I painted, distressed, stamped and then repeated that process a lot.
Thank you for stopping by.
The winner of my First Bloganniversary box is Sam. Congratulations Sam. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. I will be mailing your box out on Friday. Thank you for all who entered. I wish I could send something to each of you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Much of my inspiration on this layout came from Donna Downey’s Inspiration Wednesday from last week. Lots of fun techniques I never thought of putting together. This page turned more into a collage. A little of this and a little of that. All scraps.
And here is a close up of the texture. I used my oil pastels for the first time since high school.
Enjoy your Monday.
