I've Always Wanted You Here By Me

Well today I want to announce that I had a wonderful win at a random number giveaway. The win was for $100. in art supplies, how cool is that! The company is Retro Cafe Art ; they have all sorts of artsie supplies from ATC frames, to collage sheets to unusual ATC bits like tiny mustaches and tiny eyeglasses. I really like all their stuff and am so glad I found them.

This is the random entered ATC  that I believe had special magic to help me win! LOL. The ATC started with the Retro Art Cafe frame that I painted with Ranger crackle paint and edged with gold. The interior has marbleized paper layered with a door transparency from Artchix Studio. The vintage couple has been painted then detailed and is from Artchix too. The golden paper frame and rosettes are cut up doilies that I colored with markers. I added the sentiment" I've always wanted you here by me." and tiny rhinestones.

Hope you have someone you always wanted by your side.
take care, gerri
