Shirl, don't read this !!! Wait till your swap arrives first !!
This card was made by a sweet Etsy-an. Her name is Kristie, check out her sweet cards HERE.
I had another one of those weeks where it seems I worked and worked and have nothing to really show for it. I painted a few ceramic hearts for ebay
Finished up a swap for my friend Shirl. I must admit, there was some leftover chocolate that found its way into my mouth. lol. We were to keep it at one item ( Ya Right !! ) My inspiration was twofold. Firstly, Shirl has embroidered pieces all throughout her home and is an avid stitcher herself. This sweet little box had to have some embroidery. So, I rummaged through my stash, and the sweetness of these little sweet peas touched me. So nothing fancy, I was aiming for sweetness, friendship and innocence of first love. I wanted all of the items to be fresh and girly. Second, I included an assortment of Carol Wilson stationary. I just love this stuff !! Beautifully embossed, soft watercolor roses, this to me just screams Valentine's Day. I know, not your traditional red and pink hearts, but romance is timeless, as are roses and lace
I have another friend, who is under the weather, That I finally got to mail her Christmas gift. ( She has been traveling ) So, I sent her this hand beaded heart, and a few other goodies. :)
This was my first attempt for the swap. But it really just wasn't her, so I sold it on Etsy. I had planned this year to make lots of pretty candy boxes for Valentines, but time got away from me Again !! lol.
I am working on Easter right now, as it will be here early this year. Hope to have a few things finished by Sunday. Hope your week was great !! BTW, Thanks for all of the sweet comments for my Hubby. He is one of those men who doesn't know how cute he is, and he couldn't believe people thought he was hunky. lol. The most awesome thing though, is who he is on the inside. A man after God's own heart. Lucky Me !! :)
p.s. this is my 50th post !! Next post is another giveaway !! :)
