Something in Memory Of

Hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog.

Today, I wanted to post something that I made a couple of years ago after I had to have my sweet dog, Cuddles, put down.  She had tumor on her lung and it was inoperable.  I still feel so sad about it because I miss her so much.  A week or so after her death, I found a wall hanging project idea in one of my craft magazines I decided to make one of Cuddles.  It was very comforting to make this project and I have it on the wall by my bed so when I get up each day, there she is, like she always was.

The papers were all scraps and pieces that I had around from other projects.  I kept the colors to green, pink and brown.  The message of the wall hanging is "A Love Beyond Measure".  I purchased 3 canvas panels (4X6) at Michaels and painted them with a sea green acrylic paint before adding the papers and the embellishments.   I added little screw eyes into the panels for connecting them together with scraps of ribbon and I added another longer length of ribbon for hanging the whole thing.  

Thanks for looking,

Happy New Year!

I am soooo ready for a new year!  Not that last year was a bad one, it had it's moments, but I'm looking forward to 2010 being full of great things!

You're probably tired of Christmas and holiday cards, but if you could stand just one more, I'm going to post this snow globe card that was really fun to make.  I found the direction here on SplitCoastStampers.  I hope you like it.

The papers I used were from Graphic 45 .  The background of the globe is from the "Christmas Past" collection, I thought the snowy background really looked.  The soldiers are from the "Playtimes Past Collection".  The card stock is from GKD "Rocket Red" for the card itself and GKD "In the Navy" for the piecing pieces on the inside (not shown).  I used a CuddleBug folder to create the top of the globe and then used my glitter pen to highlight swirls.  The tutorial gives you the list of supplies you'll need so have some fun and check it out.

May all your new year wishes come true!
