True Romance

Dear friends, sorry I have not been blogging as of late. Life has just taken hold of me and kept me away from my art. We moved into a new home and I only was able to work on my new studio  a little this weekend. Putting away clothes and kitchen took priority! LOL. Then with working full time and the holidays, it all  really slowed my creativity down. Oh and I cant find my box of scissors so, I had use my husbands to make today's card.

This card uses items from my two favorite places Retro Cafe Art and Gecko Galz, p lease do check them out they have so many fun events, contest and giveaways. Well, to make this Valentines day card, I started with some embossed paper and brushed it with purple watercolor paint. I layered some printed purple paper with an image from Love Love Me Do Gecko Galz collage sheet on top. The multi colored thread ribbon, green paper flowers that act as leaves and lilac ribbon rosettes that  came next add dimension. Shiny accents of purple and olive were done with Dimensional Pearls from Ranger along with yellow Stickles.The final touch were the Valentine words cutouts  "True Romance" are from Retro Cafe Art that are painted with ivory paint and Dimensional Pearls.

Oh, I am also putting a link on my side bar so you can see where we moved. It was a journey moving  from the north to the south but we are thrilled. Take a peak and share my special world.
Hope you get to visit  a special place this week.
take care, gerri

  3. It's perfect, Gerri. Love the soft colours for the occasion. Just fits, doesn't it. Good grief, if I lost my scissors, I would really be up the creek. I have a very special pair for fussy cutting. You have my sympathy. Hope you find them soon. xodonna
