Hubby and I spent the morning putting up a garbage bag full of fresh green beans. We LOVE green beans so I can't complain about the extra added chore for today.
I've been slowly working on two swap projects for Your Paper Pantry this week. If you haven't been to this awesome place of craftiness go check it out. I'm a member of the ATC group and the Collage Melange Group, but there are several other different kinds of crafting groups you can join.
Our ATC swap this month was kind of a freebie. You got to make your cards in your own style. Ya'll know that I love my vintage/shabby chic/French stuff so that's what I did for my card. It's pretty simple although it uses several different kinds of media as you can see from the photo above.
The card base is watercolor paper. The background was colored using watercolor crayons. After it dried I stamped it using a script stamp. Two vintage images, some lace, and one of my little handmade roses finish it off. I hope my swap partners like it. I had to make ten of these and I finished them up this morning. One project I can check off the list. :)
