Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Angel Friend


I made this card using several scrap items from my stash.
That is where the green corrugated paper and red lace came from.
Tip: Keep your scraps. A scrap might be the perfect thing for your
next project.
I designed this country themed card to go with the cute folk art
angel. I did some edge distressing with my scissors and faux stitched
around the edge of the base card. A button, red wood heart and
embroidery thread finish off the look.
Tip: Button the wrong color...color it with Copic markers or
other alcohol ink. That's what I did here.


On the I Did It Creations Challenge Blog I just finished up
the We Do It All Wednesday post on Batch Making of Cards.
