BE MINE...CR84FN46#2 47

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 21, 2012 @ 9:55 PM |

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! Maybe doing something crafty? Thanks for all the well wishes for my sweet little girl, Gretchen. I will spare you the details! Basically it is recommended that she have a "nip and tuck" to reduce redundant skin that allows for a breeding ground for bacteria which can then travel into her bladder, causing issues for her! Poor little girl :( 

On to my CR84FN project~The beautiful photos used to create the graphic are courtesy of beccarillo photography.
I've been having lots of fun creating with paints lately and since I had all my mixed media supplies spread out, I made my first mixed media card:
The background is painted with many layers of stenciled paint, then finished off with a few rub ons. The heart was  made by layering various pieces of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, cut using a Spellbinders Classic Hearts die and finished off with rub ons as well. I stamped the BE MINE sentiment from Waltzingmouse Sweethearts set and lastly, added a homemade Chiffon flower.
Thanks so much for visiting! For COMPLETE details, please visit the CR84FN site and for some fab inspiration, please be sure to visit the CR84FN designers: Suzanne CzosekLisa SomervilleStephanie KraftSue LelliDeborah Frings, Heather Jensen

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sweethearts
Die Templates: Spellbinders Classic Hearts, Classic Scalloped Hearts, Grand Calibur, Classic Standard Circles Large, Standard Circles SM
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
Rub ons: Kaisercraft
