~ Winter Wings and Crinkled Things ~

Happy day, friends!! The week has been so busy, and plans have been made for a family trip next week. I won't be posting then but will return to regular blogging when I'm back.

 Before I go off on my trip, I wanted to leave you with a few winter things.... no more holiday creations, but still shimmery, glittery things. This card uses Melissa Frances paper, Prima chipboard circles, vintage trim, buttons, minty-green baker's twine, kraft cardstock, and PaperTrey Ink stamps. here I sanded the glossy chipboard circles and shabbied them up with some vintage tea dye...

 ...and the crinkled, stitched patterned paper makes the card pop a little everywhere...

Another card, with more Melissa Frances paper. A glittery, home-ly heart stitched with rows of vintage, tea-dyed trim... buttons and twine, twill ribbon, and a mini tea-stained tag...

And before I have to run off to pack for next week's trip ........ one last winter wings.

 White ink over chipboard wings-and-heart ... then goodies piled on. Snowflake stems, pearls, vintage trim, stamps, ink, stitched leaves, a crinkled tissue flower with a button and brad...

a farewell, till next week...

See you then, friends!
