Valentine's Day Gold

Happy Sunday!!
Hope everyone is doing wonderful today.
It is pretty cold here, so I am all bundled up and crafting.
What better way to spend the day?
I'd like to share my latest Lacy Sunshine project today.
I made a Valentine's Day card for my husband.
I used this wonderful image called Egyptian Princess of Love Enchantress.

Since my name is Holly, I recycled a pretty gold and white Christmas card
with a "holly" border.  I thought that seemed appropriate for my
husband's Valentine's Day card.
I added some simple pearls around the inner square, and outside corners.
I added a pretty gold heart, gold bow, and white roses dipped in gold glitter.
I also added some glitter to the image for some extra sparkle.
Hope you'll join us for our current challenge!

Tim Holtz Chalkboard Tag

I wanted to share my take on the new January 2016 Tim Holtz tag challenge 
Technique Remix.
A combination of chalkboard and metal.
I just love it!
Since I love pictures, I went with this camera stamp,
 and the travel embossing folder.
Love this method by Tim Holtz.

All Dressed Up for a Birthday

Ok, I know I'm a little late with the well wishes,
 but it has been a crazy start to the 2016 year.
I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas season.
We did, and we are ready to tackle what comes in the new year.
For my first post this year, I want to share a birthday card
that I made for my Mother's recent birthday.
(Happy Birthday again Mom!)
We have our first challenge of the New Year starting
over at All Dressed Up.  I hope you will join us.
For my card, I use All Dressed Up's Christmas Present stamp.
I used a great Spellbinders die to frame this lovely design with.
I added some pretty flowers and a bow.
And of course I had to add glitter!
