Hiya!! It’s getting closer to Valentine’s day! Yippie!! You know what that means…. pink, pink, and more pink! :) Here is my latest birdhouse- made just for the occasion!
Such sweet Pinkness!!
Ahh.. my love affair with rhinestones will never end! Lol :) And glitter, and birds, and feathers, and posies… :) If you are interested, she’s for sale in my store at http://splendidlysweet.com.
In honor of love, I also made this card for Matt’s cousin, Kim’s, bridal shower.
Yes.. I know, not pink! But her save the date was in red and white, so I figured she at least *liked* those colors! :)
Originally, I had only had the felted swirls with the medallion in the center, but Matt said it looked too plain. I thought it was ok because I wanted the eye to be drawn to the medallion and the red paper is embossed… But then I saw those pearls peeking through my desktop (which I TOTALLY have to blog about at a later date!! I WON an EZ View desktop which I LOOOOOOOOVE!!!!) and I decided to do the 3 pearl deal. Um, and then I got carried away and hand-stuck (lol!) the tiniest pearls to the swirly parts of the felt!! You might have to enlarge the picture to see, but it looks really pretty :) I hope she likes the card!
I also participated in a Swirly Love Tag swap in my ArtHaven group. Now, this is Pink!! :)
And blue! My favs :)
Unfortunately, I had a little water accident and the rest of those paper roses like the on I used for this tag got ruined!!!! I was so mad at myself! That will teach me to have a glass of water on my desktop… One bunch of these paper flowers was only $1 at the dollar store, but I’ve since gone back and they don’t have any anymore!!! People are selling them online, but they’re going for like $2.50 plus shipping! I hope the dollar store orders more of these! So pretty!
And I FINALLY found the right sized match boxes to alter for the match box swap… it only took looking at like 5 different stores!!!! Lol- I thought I was going to have to order them online. However, I still haven’t been able to find a papier mache heart box that’s over 2”. It’s getting close, so I might have to settle for a big round one… :( I guess if I can’t find one by the end of the week… You know me; nothing like waiting till the last minute!!
I hope you are in the middle of a splendidly sweet weekend! Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!
