A little bit Shabby

No sentiment !!! Now HOW could I forget that !!! Today is our 25th wedding anniversary & yes it is also April Fools Day … My husband has a little sense of humor …

When I 1st started card making if I got a piece of paper a little wrinkled it would get tossed out or recycled. Today I did it on PURPOSE !!! This is my 1st attempt at being a little bit shabby & I’m not sure I’ve achieved the look but it was fun trying. Used some Tim Holtz distress inks for the 1st time on the basket, bird & papers … I LOVE those inks & the look they give. I even used a little distress tool around the edges to “rough it up” …

Couldn’t decide if I liked adding a messy seam binding bow or not so will just loosely stick in on for now. I just got a bunch of different colors from Stamp Simply & Sharon rushed my order to me so I could get it at the RV Park before we left. Awesome customer support & very fast service.

Added some bunnies I cut with dies from velvet paper & a few flowers I made with the Fabulous Phlox die & a little baby’s breath (my new “favorite” thing) for some floral filler…

We have to get on the road as we have spent the winter in sunny Arizona & now it’s time to head home. Thanks for stopping by,

Hugs, Janie

  11. I love the basket Janie and you knocked it out of the park doing shabby. Perused your blog and saw wonderful and creative project, I have a Cameo too but I have hardly used it and those lanterns are awesome. Have so much to learn about the Silhouette but busy focusing on coloring right now. Your coloring is wonderful and you have some great color combinations going on throughout your projects.

    Happy belated anniversary. Sounds like you have a fab hubby who spoils you as much as mine does me. Hugs, Carol

  16. Happy Anniversary Janie! I love the card with the bow on it, but I'm partial to bows. I love Easter baskets with bows. This is so adorable, a perfect Easter card.
