100 years old !!

I made this card today , it is for my dad ! This coming week he will be 100 years old ! It is so hard to believe that he is 100 ! My parents live in their home still and have a live in caregiver. My dad was a farmer and he loved every aspect of farming . He also loved working with wood and creating furniture ,frames and all kinds of wood treasures !
I made this card with Glitz Paper from Altered Pages . Love the paper and all of the designs ! Be sure to check out the web site for all kinds of paper craft goodies. There are kits ,stamps,collage sheets,tools and embellishments !

The card has die cut frames for the center , I stamped & embossed on the top one. The numbers are also grunge paper die cuts and sprayed with Glimmer Mist !
Have a fabulous day everyone & thanks for stopping by ! I love comments !!

Vintage Repurposed

Thought I would share with you a little treasure I repurposed ! I have had this vintage wood silverware holder for quite awhile , it actually was one my mom used ......many years ago ! I kept it because I knew some day I would have to repurpose it into something ! So here it is !

Some of my favorite things , love vintage silverware ,wood spools and birdhouse's ! I created a little banner at the top with the word "FAITH" .
You may be able to see a close up of the lace above the vintage spoon , love that piece ! I made a simple yet rustic cross and placed in an old wood spool ! The edges are covered with tape from Tim Holtz , love using that stuff !

The verse for the inspiration :
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for ,
the evidence of things not seen.

                                                        Have a fabulous & creative day !

New Year & New Projects !

I survived Christmas and all that goes with the whole holiday experience ! I am now ready to get back to creating and spending more time in my studio ! I have been working on some projects for Altered Pages !

This tag was made using one of the rubber stamps from Altered Pages for the background !Some more projects I just finished :
Taking a photo of something long is just not for me ! Never looks good !But you get the idea ?!
A wall banner , HOPE using some clock images from Altered Pages , chip board,papers and embellishments !
Another Tag , with more time theme !
 Just before Christmas I made a quick trip to visit my sister & get an eye check up ! Got some new funky glasses ! While I was there we were doing some shopping  , had just finished up for the day actually , so we went to a coffee shop , sit for a bit & then on our way to go home , well I had to find the six inch patch of ice that  I didn't see because we to busy talking , and down I went ! Bam , hard ouch , and hit my head on the side of a giant cement planter ! Ugh , needless to say I had to get staples in my head and it is taking me awhile to heal ! But getting there !!!
My funky glasses !!
Have a fabulous and creative day !!
