More than just a little bit late!

OK, this is a lesson in not procrastinating. I posted my card to our DT page in plenty of time and then instead of going ahead to make my post on my blog and scheduling it, I just started a new draft and added the picture intending to come back to it.  Then I got sick with what I thought was the flu but turned out to be a combination to a UTI and a bacterial infection.  So here I am, 2 weeks later, scheduling my next DT post and finally getting this one posted!  

This sweet image is from our own Crafty Girl and our theme at the time was to add some texture.  I added a strip of burlap ribbon and then used my distressing tool to rough up the edges.  Plus a few little gemstones.  

Kitchen Trivet

My sister just moved back to our hometown and I'm happy to have her this close again!  I made this trivet for her first housewarming gift.

I found these trivets and Dollar Tree.  Weeding this was a lot of work, I won't lie.  I had to recut a few letters and add them in.  And then there was this "s" that I looked and looked for and didn't find until I was doing laundry!  I made another trivet that said "Nana's Kitchen" and I'll be changing one particular font before I make any more!  

But I do like how they've turned out and Lynna seemed very pleased with hers.

Owl Bulletin Board

Doggone it!  I went on vacation and forgot to set this post to publish yesterday!!!

This week at Tuesday Throwdown our theme is "Book Lover or Book worm" and we are sponsored by

I've used an image from our sponsor to make a small bulletin board to use at work:

The image is approximately 7" x 7" and the letters are from the "A Child's Year" cartridge.  I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and hand cut it out.
