FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!! Saved the best for last

On this bird one...I had leftover felt flourish that was light green. Didn't work for me so I heat embossed it! I had tried inking it up w/ black...and it was too wet....So I applied some black EP and set that...Voila! Ready to use. I think I like the idea of EP on felt so it dries faster & can be used quickly!

Here is the other part of the flourish..left it green here.

If you ask me...I think these cards are the best for the week. The new sneak peek CTMH flyer called "Inspirations" has these papers & stamps in it..they are amazing!post signature

THis one was a result of cleaning out chipboard! I heat embossed the red flower & green stem. It seems to bubble up a bit...but the result is fun.

If you can't find a patterned paper to 'match' your photo..make it! I used a dots background stamp for the right strip..and then used stripes of paper in purples & green & grey for the striped piece...voila...custom!
Don't you love the glitter & shimmery E's!

My big Emma page!

Silly....sorry...but used as many E's I could in the title box here...and well...rather pleased with the result!post signature

January Blog Hop for WINGS got here from BETSY"S blog right...and after visiting me you should head over to KAREN's BLog to see what she whipped up!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this new paper pack & assorted stamps from CTMH...their preview for January is stunning. I whipped these 3 cards & 1 page out in probably an hour!?!? Not counting drying time for the liquid glass of course. But WILL LOVE these!!

On this layout I used liquid glass to put some glitter on my S...then liquid glass again on top of it to seal it in & make it more dimensional....ribbon of course too! The "oar" are cut out from the background & texture paper from the kit.

Here is the blog hoppers this month:

Betsy Gully (Stamp Scrap Fever)

Karen Barber (Inky Fingers)

Mary Crosby (Road to Peace of Mind or Escape?)

Erica Michel (From the Heart)
