The last two for today...I think! ;D

LAST post for today, I promise, friends!  I've got two last cards to show you, and then I'll have to go and get crafty! ;)  Also, DON'T FORGET THAT I HAVE SOME DIGI BLOG CANDY I'M GIVING AWAY!!!  Let's get started with the actual post now, shall we...

First card~

Details~






For these fabulous challenges~ 




I've used the free digi from ADFD and then I decided to make teeny tiny pinwheels out of patterned paper.  This is the first time I've ever done it--and it was way easier than I thought it would be!  I LOVE the way this turned out--I think it's darling! And we may be making this card at my July workshop, I think!

Second card~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~




Okay, this might sound silly, but I've had some washi tape for quite some time and haven't used it.  Because I was worried that I wouldn't use it RIGHT.  How do you use a craft supply WRONG? was my husband's question.  OKAY, he's right!  And this is what I came up with!  A washi tape sunrise!  Some strategically placed bling on top of the monochrome crumpled image with some pearly glimmer mist to finish it off!

I love your pinwheels in a bottle... and I love your WASHI sunrise! I agree with hubbub, you can't use craft supplies wrong - it's art - just go with it. :) I love the sunrise. I really do! How clever of you. Thank you so much for vising my blog and leaving me such a nice comment on my scripture card. It really made me smile. :) Janis
