Forever Love

  Well I was a bad girl today - I had already spent my craft budget for the month but JoAnn's have a 25% off everything coupon - even sale items and that doesn't happen often. Usually when I go to look with one of these coupons there isn't much on sale so I don't buy anything (I buy what I need with the 40 or 50% off coupons instead....) WELL - they had all Tim Holtz products on sale for 40% already and the 25 % off on top was too good to resist - 65% off!!!! Gears and watch parts and corners, oh my, chipboard books and fancy buttons too, and more gears, and a pocket watch shell or 2......you get the idea.....
  I have for you today an Valentines doo dad - charm, ornament, package decoration.....it is made from an oval glass piece that I got very cheep after Christmas at A.C. Moore.
  First I glued a piece of old lace (from a curtain I found at a thrift store - very cheep :) with chrystal laquer (because it dries clear)
   Then on the front I stamped and embossed the heart and phrase, both of which are from Flourishes.
  I edged it with gold mettalic pen and added some red and gold ribbon as a hanger.
  I will be using this for the first release week challenge over at Flourishes - http://flourishes.org/2013/01/are-you-ready-for-some-release-week-fun/
   All for today - need to finish off a couple things in my craft room and maybe clean house a bit - oh yes I also have an appointment with a good book - the last and final book of Robert Jordan's 'Wheel of time' series came in the mail today - #14 and I cannot wait to dig in, I have been reading this series for about 20 years now - no joke, each new book would come out about 2 years apart.....
  Take Care
