Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Coconut
Shhhhhh....... I am starting to FINALLY feel a weeeee bit better from my last nasty chemo, so let's keep it on the down low...... I don't want my body to find out and cause a revolt! ;)
I managed to craft a bit early this afternoon. trying to do some backward crafting - a bit of makeup DT work if you will. I've got several other projects to finish if I'm able, so we'll see how it goes. then I would start to actually work on current stuff. better start drinking caffienated coffee if I'm gonna pull that one off. ha!
anyhow, the current challenge over at Top Tip Tuesdays is All About Circles. I call it more appropriately 'running in circles' because that is how you are more apt to find me! tee hee! One of our sponsors is the fun Redonkulous Designs. This was a new store for me, and I gotta tell you, I'll be going back! these images are fun on a stick!
I used the image, Trendy Teen Boy, and Basic Grey Clippings papers. you will have to excuse his unnaturally white teeth.... couldn't seem to do anything to get them to look real or not so bright. either that or he looked to have a constant milk moustache. oh well. there are worse things......
Not only are there circles all over my BG papers, but I punched some out as well. one was punched from a note card and then a SU! rub-on senti was applied. added some fun grid washi tape and metal buttons. a price ticket tag from a trip to The Salvation Army was the perfect match. you'll also see part of a belt loop stapled here.... you just never know what I am going to re-puropse on my stuff, do you?! once the card was complete, I sprayed the entire thing with clay Mr. Huey mist.
now for my tip:
My sons are past the point of 'outgrowing' clothes, so we don't donate as much to The Salvation Army as we used to. they are more into 'wearing out' anything they wear these days! I have trained them, and hubby, too!, to bring everything to me first so that I may take what I first need for crafting before any items get tossed into the trash. here you will find both buttons and a belt loop from a worn out pair of shorts. in fact, the pair of shorts looked quite similar to the pair this young fella is wearing in the digi!! ;)
you will have fun re-purposing these items, and whomever receives the card will get quite the kick seeing some of their fave pieces of clothes coming back to them. just ask my sons at college! they now only want cards that have some bit of their clothing on them.... grins!
