Tues projects

I had some errands to run so left early so I could be home early and CREATE!!  I have been working in my studio and havin a blast!!!  and of cource Mr. Boopie Woopie Boo is in the chair next to me with one of his bears.

So with the color challenge card done over at CR84FN  I decided I am in love with lavender, pink and kraft colors and well wanted to alter something!  I bought a box full of these old bingo cards and used that as my backround..  Added a heart shaped paper doily, some old vintagey trim I had in my stash and a touch of cappacino twine from Vintage Street Market,  a kraft paper layered flower I made, some Vintage Market Street's white millanery flowers, some Martha Stewart pink glitter and some layered distressed My Mind's Eye papers I came up with this valentine insprired hanging card.  I also had some of these cute silver double heart charms laying in a drawer so added one of them and a couple of pink stones and then added a beaded charm to the bottom corner.  
And now that the surprise will soon be discovered I thought I would add the pic of my altered valentines I sent out to a few of my P&R craftin sistrs~
We had a valentine swap and instead of using all papers I decided to yepper you guessed it  ALTER!! a wood sign!!  I am pleased with the way it turned out and since we are all primitive lovers I thought it fit right in and you would hang it on a valentine tree, or from a cupboard door, or set it on a shelf for feb.
The banner was just just cut from chipboard scraps then I decoupaged pp on after cutting with my scalloped edgs scissors, distressed and stamped with JUST RITE alpha letters to spell LOVE.
I also made a layered paper flower using old pages from a hymnal book and aged them up a bit too.  Foam pieces are inbetween the layers to make them stand out more and the center is something I scanned and printed on kraft cardstock paper.  An old vintage milk cap!!  I bought several at an estate sale so scanned em and can make art with them!! YIPPEE!! love when old things meet new and become a treasure!!    
I had some plain grey tickets so wrote on each Happy Valentines Day on them and also added  ~~
I used some brown chalk ink to stamp out flourishes around the edges and also added some vintage old newspaper pieces behind the ticket and a metal snap and some red and white bakers twine.  All in all I think they are gonna like it at least I hope so!!  They went in the mail today and are their happy little way to my friends!!
I am now off to work on some new altered jewelry pieces I have floatin around in my head!~  LOL i have a vision and want to work on it before it disappears and something else comes to my head!~  LOL
hope yall have a happy happy tues!~
I will try to be back soon, tomorrow is bread makin day and also my friends and I are having a movie afternoon!! Watching Julie Julia, I know what kind of baker am I!!??  I got it for a xmas gift and havent had a chance to watch so tomorrow it is!! YEAH!~~
