Treasures Found

I have been doing some cleaning and of course, when you clean, you find great treasures.  I happened across some sprays I had bought many years ago when I took a class from Stamp Zia - I don't even know if she is around anymore.  I know she was from Wisconsin.  I did have fun in the class, I do remember that.

Well of course I had to see if the sprays still worked before I threw them away.  I got out a sheet of paper from a Dylusions Journal and started spraying it.  Once it was dry I did like the background I had achieved.  I decided I would make some more postcards.  I cut three postcards from my sheet - the largest is 4 x 6 and then the other two are just a little smaller.  I did have a strip of the sprayed paper left so I made 2 skinny cards.

The stamp on the postcards is a Tammy Tutterow stamp from Spellbinders.  I stamped with Versafine Ink and clear embossed.  The hello is a diecut from Hero Arts.  I added some extra hearts with a little stamp from Stamps by Judith.

On this card, the flower is a stamp from Penny Black.  The little sentiment maybe from Hero Arts.  It was just laying on my design table.  I added a simple bow with black crochet thread and the panel was matted with black.  I did pop dot the panel to the front of the card.

I am entering the postcards in the Wednesday Challenge on Simon Says Stamp where the challenge is Anything Goes.  Love those challenges.

I think I may go to the Farmers Market.  I am feeling a little restless so maybe it would be a good idea to get out of the house for a little while.  I did go for a 20 minutes walk.  I am trying to do this every other day.  I have bursitis in one hip so trying not to aggravate it.

Have a wonderful day.
