Finding my Happy Place

With the way I have been hurting lately, it's a bit hard to find my Happy Place, but that doesn't mean I should give up. I haven't been able to do a lot of the things I've wanted to because of the pain, so I'm just doing a little bit at a time. There have been several times where I have to stop & go sit down because I'm hurting and then when I feel better I come back to start working on my project again & for the life of me I can't remember what I was going to do, so then I start working with what is in front of me. Usually half way through once things are adhered and basically put together, it dawns on me where I was wanting to go with the project - which leads to another start for the next one I work on. lol

You have been given a small glimpse of what it's like to be in my head! LOL

I couldn't wait to use my new latice embossing folder, so when it was delivered I got busy with it. I ordered it over a month ago but it's been on back order. With the above project I also used my Extra Large 2-step Bird Punch, Tiny Tag punch, an eyelet, thread, and a ribbon. If you look close enough to the birds' body, you'll see I stamped a flourish image with versamark to leave a watermark of the design on the body of the bird.
More Birds! The stamp set used for this project is Watercolor Trio, the sentiment is also included in that set as well. I have been playing around with distressing, so be prepared to see more of that included with my projects in the future.

For this card I used my crimper to crimp the matt and naked chipboard as an embellishment. The stamp set's used for this project: Watercolor Trio (are we sensing a trend here?) and the sentiment is from the Hostess set (that you can earn free) called Picture This. I wrapped ribbon around the end & tied that with linen thread and added a monogram letter and stuck a large brad in the other end. I used Stampin' Write markers on the sentiment and the flower image so they would turn out multi-color instead of using an ink pad to make the whole image one solid color.

Anyway, nothing fancy - just really basic easy projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
