A Wee lassie for WOC

Happy Saturday everyone! Well the wind is blowing to beat the devil but the sun is shining so that makes me happy. I have two projects for you today, the first is by a new company called Wee Stamps. I have followed (mostly) the sketch by Wild Orchid Crafts except I couldn't cover up my pretty little flower lace so my image is off to the side as opposed to on top of the lace. I think I need to make 10x10 inch cards to accomodate all of the elements sometimes! The paper is Mariposa by DCWV. When this paper came out a couple of years ago I think I bought 2 of the 12 x 12 stacks, 2 of the 8x8 and some of the 4x6 stacks but I thought it was so pretty I never used it. That is what you call hoarding! Well, times and tastes change and although it is still very pretty I am willing to cut it up now and start to use it. The flowers are by WOC and even though I am not the best at placing flowers on my card I think these ones came out okay.
Posted by PicasaThis item on the other hand, not so great but since I made it I figured I would post it. This is for Ladybug Crafts which is to make anything but a card. I had the bright idea to buy a picture frame from the dollar store and alter it. I wanted something I could change out from season to season and this is what I came up with. I removed the insert and used a Magnum image (still gotta work on fur coloring) for the top of the background. I thought it was too plain so I stamped some corner flourishes in the upper corners and truly disliked them so I slapped a flower over the one on the side to cover at least one of them. I then pulled the back sheet off of my post it notes and stuck it onto the outer portion of the glass frame so it can be replaced when it runs out. Good idea, not the best execution. Oh well, live and learn!

Love the wee lass card, it is so spring like and I like the altered frame, you could also put a little calendar on it for something different.
