here i am, safe and sound...
a bit of update on my health: chest x-rays: good; blood work: cholesterol; and sugar a bit high ---have to repeat in 3 months---and i am waiting for the stress test results. in the meantime i am doing ok, still tired and short of breath but my gerd has not been acting up much. i have made subtle changes and it seems to be working. let's see how long it lasts. :D i am hoping they find whatever in the stress test and can start treatment. i do not want to go for another open heart surgery :(.
before i show you my project, i want to show you a picture of Lulu.
this was done by my son who is a
fan, and decided to turn Lulu into the diva she already is.
you gotta love her?
I made this card and i altered this can along with a few other valentine candy containers and a banner.
they are on its way to boston.
card is 5.5 x 4.25 inch
the metal embellishment---how cute-- was embossed using a small cuttlebug folder and a metal paper from quickutz. i bought mine a while ago at hobby lobby. the trees and heart are from my stash of clear stamps and the sentiment is from my pink stamper. the patterned papers are from k&co.
i covered the can with kraft paper using a strong adhesive---i used a scor pal tape. that much i knew when i started, lol.
the hearts are from doodlecharms--cricut cartridge: page #85 of the handbook and image #4 on the overlay. i used the border feauture and cut an extra heart to pop it up with foam adhesive. the middle heart was wet embossed with silver powder and the edges were all inked.
i used brads to attach the ribbon around it.
the rest of the stamping was done at the end: like i said i just did not have a clue before i started what i wanted to do. it was not hard at all to stamp it at the end. :P
this is it for now,
i hope you enjoy it.
love you all!
