Follow Your Heart


I'm recovering from the frenzy of the Waltzingmouse Stamps new release - thanks to all of you that stopped by to leave such sweet comments. I appreciate each and every one of them.

So, I was in the mood to create something quick and scrappy last night. Better to ease myself back into things :) I love these cards that start out as a pile of stuff on my desk and materialize into something fantastic! This one topped out at 10 minutes.

The strips of patterned paper are from the Crate Paper Restoration Collection. This is really a great collection of paper, I love the patterns. I just stitched these right to my card base. The frame, bird, and sentiment are all from my stash of Handmade Die-Cut Cardstock. I added some lace, a vintage button, a rhinestone eye for my birdie, and some acrylic paint to finish it off. Fun, cute, and fast!

Have a super night!
