Decorating Cherub

You can get this cute little cherub's behind in a stamp set and in a paper pad from Crafty Secrets. I have both, this happens to be the paper. I just grabbed a few CS paper pad scraps, stitched them together, added a couple of embellishments and ended up with this. I sprayed the Prima flower with Black Cherry Glimmer Mist, which I find very satisfying. I could spray stuff with Glimmer Mist all day long!

Hot dang is it ever raining in Colorado! We've had rain all week. This rarely causes trouble here, but it can be a problem for those downstream. Stay safe, everybody! Hope everyone is well!

Crafty Secrets Baby Card

This is a huge shock, I know, but here is another Crafty Secrets card. I used stickers, chipboard and paper from Crafty Secrets, plus a little SU! Chocolate Chip, some vintage sheet music, a little seam binding, and the A Muse Studio grass die.

When I bought the Grass die, I honestly had no idea I would use it so much. I mostly just bought it because I love dies and am an a|s consultant, not because I loved it or thought I would get a great deal of use out of it, but I have. Don't you think the fringe adds a nice touch to this card? I cut it from vintage dictionary paper and folded it in half. I know I'll do this again.

Back to Crafty Secrets. Did you know that they have issued a design team call? I am trying to decide if I should submit or not. On the one hand, CS has been my favorite company for years, and I use more CS than any other company. However, that might be the reason I don't apply. What if I don't get chosen and from now on every time I use CS stuff I think, "I wasn't good enough!" I'm not looking for design work right now, but it's Crafty Secrets! What should I do? What would you do?

Sweet Little Cherubs

Isn't this image just the sweetest? It's Crafty Secrets, of course! I stamped it on A Muse Studio Vanilla cardstock in French Roast. Then I sponged the edges and layered it on vintage dictionary scalloped ovals. The hangers are 100% cotton crochet thread in natural. These are simple and satisfying to make. They add just the right touch to gifts, the necks of vases, or even on a tree.

I hope you are doing well, and I'm so glad you stopped by! Please don't forget to leave a comment so I can stop by your place; I'd love to see what you're up to!
