New Projects

Well, I got this new paper, French Country by Graphic 45--one of my favourite companies--last November and made some cards for my Christmas sales, but there's still got a bunch left  ;)
I thought I'd better pull it out again--cause I've got plans for it! 

The frame is from Close to My Heart and it's about an inch deep. I cut a piece of white cardboard for the backing and glued that pretty piece of paper on, then adhered it to the back of the frame. In hindsight, I should have decided whether I was painting or papering the front. I'll have to work that out :) I do know that there is going to be some fussy cutting!

Also, do you see other things cut out? Some tags for a tag book, some cut-outs---remnants from the cards, this should keep me busy for a bit.

Here's the back of the frame and for extra measure, after gluing the backing on, I added some tissue tape. I may add some paper to cover the white, not sure yet.

I also got the Bird Song paper pack and am waiting for 3 other ones  coming! So I should be busy all Spring. 

Ordering on line has turned me into a monster  :)  Have you seen all the new stuff coming out of CHA!!  How are we to resist all of it! 

My afghan is coming along, 31 rows done, about 1/4 of the way!   

Hope you're all having a good weekend, it's snowing here.....again :)
