Sending You Love!

Hello sweet peeps! Sorry my posts have been sparse. I'm a bit under the weather ~ stuffy, headachey, blah blah, blah. But I did manage to put a card together yesterday. Actually it's a redo for the City Crafter Challenge Blog. They're asking us to rework a project that we weren't happy with the first go around.


I loved the paper pieced balloon (Pretty Pink Posh: Darling Friends) for this magnet I made last year. But I didn't like the shaker portion of it after is was complete.  And my sequins on the clouds (PPP: Rainy Days) weren't quite the right color. 

So, I reworked it into this card.


I hadn't intended to change out the bunny for a mouse, but I smudged ink on it after stamping my sentiment. I went with sparkling clear sequins here (4mm, 6mm, 10mm). I like this project much better. How about you?

Week 349 ~ Old Stuff, New Look!

Have a wonderful weekend. Hope you're all healthy!!

I have to say I love them both, Lisa! That magnet shaker is just adorable, but your card is, too, with the wee mouse and the gently blending and the clear sequints! A sweet and balanced design! I hope you are over your cold soon! Hugs, Darnell

I think both projects are fabulous but I do agree the new project has a slightly more co-ordinated look in the choice of sequins etc. Thanks for joining in at City Crafter.
