I have finally finished this Easter Card! I want to send it to our 6 year old Grandson! It is called a Flip Flap card. I just love making them! You can find the tutorial that Ann did here-
I must have had an upgrade to my computer and I feel like I have to learn how to download pics from my camera to my computer - all over again. Also, just posting to my blog is a whole new
experience. I think I am too old for all these updates!!
The picture above is the inside of the card- I put funny Easter type jokes inside.
I do hope he likes them!
I made this card for my sister and her husband's wedding anniversary! It's another Flip Flap card.
I put the sentiment across the inside of the card. It is hard to see in these pictures.
Love this different type of card for sure!!
I have continued to turn items I have purchased at Goodwill into very chic
farmhouse styled items.
I used chalk paint on the above jar - it took 2 coats of paint and I made sure it dried completely
in between coats.
Once dried- I sprayed it with Rust-oleum's Clear Matte Enamel to protect it. Then I used
IOD's ( Iron Orchid Designs) wonderful stamps with Staz on Ink. I love how it turned out!!
It is a challenge to stamp in a rounded surface but I don't think it has to be perfect since I was
going for a vintage look. These stamps are made very well! Love, love, love - this company!
Here is a picture of a few more items I turned from "Cheap to Chic"!
Most of the items were less than $3.00. It is fun bringing something back to life!
Here is just a couple more things! I am in love with artificial flowers! Since I do not
have a green thumb, I am using them to fill these planters! It really does brighten our little condo!!
I will end my post with the little duckie below. I painted it with gray chalk paint. Just love it!
The weather here in Florida is Hot, Hot, Hot! We have about a little over a month left here. We are getting out 2nd vaccine on Monday. I am a little nervous about that since I did have a mild reaction with the first. I have my fingers crossed!!
Easter is almost upon us and I wanted to be sure and wish everyone a wonderful Easter and a safe one!
