Sweet Friend mirror


Hi! Remember two weeks ago when I told you I’d have the coordinating gift for my friend? Well, here it is!

I used a bunch of the die cut butterflies from this paper and mounted them on a mirror I picked up a long time ago.

Then I dissected this flourish to make the trails behind all of them. They are all mounted with a little piece of i {stick} papers redline tape (only 21 cents a yard!!) and then the wings are propped up with dimensional dots.

I used my Sweet Friend stamp from Chelsea Greetings and my Versamark pad and white embossing powder to stamp the bottom and then finished it off with the wide white 100% silk ribbon to hang it from.

In other news, we learned yesterday that Ron the Mailman is retiring in October but before then (at the end of this month) they are assigning him a new route and he will not be our carrier any more. I can't be 100% sure that I didn't play a part in that. I wonder if he requested a new route! HAHAHA! Ah well...hopefully the new guy is as patient and nice as Ron. Stay tuned...

Remember, orders will not be shipping from July 16- July 22. I'm down to counting the hours until we leave for Niagara Falls but I'll spare you the details. Boy, aren't you going to be glad once this trip is over??!! (But then I'll start talking all about CHA!!!)

Thanks for stopping by!
