Double the pleasure, double the fun!

Can't remember this happening in my lifetime...Valentine's Day and the lunar New Year - China's Year of the Tiger. Chocolate and chinese food...yum!

I'm sharing an ATC celebrating the Year of the Tiger as well as a chipboard wallhanging all about love. It's actually 1 page of 3, I'll be showing those to you later in the year (one's for our anniversary in June). The wallhanging is done Wendy-style. The pink covered buttons at the top I found at an antique store. They were in a glass bottle that I bought because of the other things inside. These were a bonus find! The ecru lace is an antique piece that has been in my husband's family for many, many years.

This Saturday I'll be attending a one-day retreat in Springfield, IL put on by the Prairie Art Stampers where I'll get to see some of my EWV friends and club friends. I'm sure I'll be making new friends along the way. The following Saturday I'll be taking Wendy's class up in Bloomington, IL where I'll meet up with an on-line EWV friend and possibly some I already know. In class we'll be making a mini book using lots of Maya Road products, Wendy's new stamps and playing with the new Ranger Distress Ink colors. I've not been to the store before so I hope to get there early enough to shop and see Wendy's demo before the class.

Whatever you do today I hope you have fun!


  1. Wow! What a productive time you have had! Love both of these pieces! But I'm especially partial to the wall hanging! Love how you incorporated vintage items, looks very cool. If you consider vintage is cool, which I do. lol

  2. Your heart is beautiful... I really love the antique lace that you added - really compliments the grunge heart!
