OWH Sketch 169 & 170

This sketch was a little challenging for me...not sure why. The sentiment is from K Andrews Designs Winged Things stamp set (I think)
I bought some new Recollections paper last weekend and couldn't wait to use it! Love all the colors. The sentiment is from Fiskars Lasing Love Quotes stamp set.

Felicity's Be a Blessing Hop ~

(What a sweet angel baby) Welcome to Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!! Today we are celebrating a very special little girl's first birthday. She has had a difficult fight this past year and we felt what better way to celebrate her life than have a blog hop! Felicity has touched many lives even though she is not even one yet. Every day she makes therapists, doctors, and even her family smile. The purpose of this hop is to be a blessing. So the way to win our blog candy will be for you to be a blessing to someone around you. Then photograph how you have been a blessing with either a craft project or taking a meal to someone, etc. Share it with us and that gives you an extra entry besides leaving comments on all the hop stops. If you arrived from Stacey then you are in the right place. If not please go back to the beginning at Shawnee's blog and make sure you don't miss all the amazing ways my friends have chosen to bless others.

Blog candy for this hop is one pap…

Today we are showing off our creations to celebrate Earth Day 2013. If you’re just starting here make sure to head over to the beginning at My Life in Arts’ n Crafts’. I hear she’s giving away some goodies!

I started out with the silver liner that seals my coffee can. I had seen tutorials of embossing on aluminum foil so I thought I would give it a go! I used the Spellbinders Picot Edge & Standard Circles dies and ran it through my Grand Calibur. I had to run it through a couple of times because there appeared to be another layer like…

OWH ~ Midweek Throwdown ~ Favorite Color Combo 4/10/13 I have always adored the coral and seafoam green colors together. It's a bit darker in this picture. Still working on the photography skills.
