The 3 of you and the little store that could

Happy Friday! I have a couple of LO's to share with you today. First up is a lift I did of a Janine Langer LO I saw, and had really admired. I really liked the felt she had used as a border, but I wanted to try and mimic the border Virginia did on her canvas. So I painted it with brown and white. I wasn't thrilled with it, so I went ahead and added the zigzag stitch...and voila. Now I love it! :)
I am using up my HUGE MME stash. I love the vintage feel of all their papers. Anyway, I also used a JB Chipboard frame, some Hambly Valentines rub ons, MM trim and some Hambly star rub ons.


This one is based on sketch #7 over at Inspired Blueprints. I'll say it again, I LOVE their sketches. There is something different feeling about them to me that makes them very appealing! Anyway...here again I am using up some MME stash. I also used the Velvet Thickers. I know a lot of people complained about the stickiness of them. What I think the issue is, is that the fibers of the velvet compromise the sticker...so easy solution, just add some glue. :) There is also a Hambly rub on, some Jenni Bowlin felt flowers and some MM mini letters. TFL and have a fantastic weekend!
