Scraps to make a card.

Just thought I would pop this one on while I still remember...
I am trying to use as many scrap pieces up as possible, like so many other crafters this year..{so far}
February being the month of Love, and my birthday month  too this just seemed to create itself in a way...who knew...!!!
Papers are from my Polish papers book, I just couldn't throw them out and the clock face is one I fussy cut and distressed, all from the book, loads of extra elements to from stash and letters I think were from the works, had them ages, a little envelope made from a tiny square, a few little punched out hearts and a flick of acrylic, done..
I think it turned out ok, sadly there is no one to send it to, but that's ok too.
Hope your all enjoying a nice weekend, its bitterly cold here but the sun is out and the sky is blue...does that sound like a song..haha...that's stuck in my head for the rest of the day now...thanks for your visit, and any comments you leave, always welcome...warmest hugs.xx

Abit of what you fancy and all that...

Its not always great to get what you fancy, I LOVE snow, the cold weather does not love me or my health problems, but I love to see the snow and the all the children playing...OK then, I had this in my file from last year, I was playing with air dry clay, made some little flowers and a few hearts, not overly impressed then thought I i set to it, made a plain old box with Papermill cardstock and covered it with Minty Polish papers and the made a top, covered it with tissue paper all crinkled up and lots of modge podge added the flowers, heart and some power tex balls, a few other bits and bobs, once dried i painted, first coat black, while still wet i added the copper and a touch of silver which is hardly visible, let dry and that's I have to be honest, I really don't care for it, I do stuff like this all the time, but I am dragging as much out of file and posting for a reason, so you will believe me when I say I did that or I made one of those...that's all I will say about it...
Top view so maybe you can make a few things out..
That's all for today, if you get this far, thanks so much, I love to hear from you good or bad its all
