I made this card for the HIP Hop Crinkle challenge but didn't get it posted in time. I used a kraft card with scrap white card stock strips. I stamped The Dream Tree stamp from Unity Stamp Co ( ) onto blue patterned card stock using Broken China distress ink. I cut the image into four sections and crumpled each one up and inked the edges and over the bumps. I stamped birthday from Unity Stamp Company May kit of the month ( )

Live Simply

I had fun creating this little canvas. I need to do more of these projects. This is my first one. I painted a 5 x 5 canvas (got on clearance at Joanns for .97 cents - gotta love that) Use a page from an old dictionary with the word living at the top left of the page. Stamped Unity Co. stamps on the book page, canvas. Cut out the bird and mounted it to card stock and added gems. Attached that piece to torn piece of cardboard. Used some rusted wire and attached a distress crackled chipboard piece with a metal frame piece I got off Etsy and the end of the wire I strung some beads. I used a vintage piece of something I got in a jar of buttons I bought at an estate sale and some scrap ribbon. It was fun to make.

4th of July

Happy 4th of July - Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. It is only 69 and rainy today in Evergreen Park. But with rainy days like these I love to hang out in my craft room. Hope tomorrow is a nicer day, heading out to Kane County Flea Market.
