Paper Mache Heart

Hi All
I was inspired by this post over at A Faithful Attempt when making a heart for my boyf this valentines day. He gave me a heart last year so I thought it was only fitting to return the favour this year.

 I pretty much followed the instructions exactly, but using a mix of flour and water and adding an extra layer of tissue paper after the paper towel and before painting.
 I made the tag using the old Distress Ink favourite of spritz and flick with various colours of brown and tattered the edges.  I printed the sentiment and then traced it using a lightbox and attached it with string which I had also stained with distress ink.
I find the process of paper mache so fascinating, that may just be me though and I have done ever since I was little so at least I'm consistent.

Mush Valentines Card

Hi All

So Twinny asked me to make her a 'mushy' card for her boyfriend for valentines day. So I did:

 I'm quite liking this slightly more minimalist look at the moment it seems very clean

With an appropriately unmushy sentiment inside, just in case...

My Twinny's Birthday Card

Hi All!
It was mine and Twinny's birthday a couple of weeks back and just thought I'd share this card I made for her:

 Quite simple really, just utilising my most favourite of Cricut Cartridges: Storybook!

With a spellbinders nestie frame. The image is of a character she created for me when we were about 15 I think who is affectionately know as MSSC or Mad Scary Stalker Cat (of course it is) and so I thought I'd finally give it a go and try and draw it myself, which I did with a quickie glue pen and the covered it in glitter! Hooray for glitter!

I shall be sharing this at MIM hello all, it's been a while.
