I think I can safely post this. It's a birthday card I made for my oldest daughter Cathy. I'll be giving it to her tomorrow. This was fun to make. I cut the little flowers out by hand (thank heavens for the great scissors Amanda got me, they're so sharp and precise. Then I arranged them in the little trunk and did a little altering of the picture of the sweet lady. My girls love handmade things and usually make them for me. I hope she'll like this.
It probably won't take you long to figure out what this was. You're right... a Spam can. Just the right size for little notes or little things you pick up. I got the khaki Red Heart 100% cotton yarn at the Salvation Army for 25cents and I've used it on a lot of tags and tied Christmas gifts with it. It's a perfect rugged looking color that's just the look I want. What a bargain. The next time I cover a can like this I think I'll use a pretty tissue paper so it will mold to the can easier. Diane
This was interesting. The background is red. But when I drew white lines on it to look like plaid or checks, it really made it look pink. I listed it on Etsy along with a few other Valentine tags. My art room is in a mess, I did some rearranging. It won't take me long to get it back together, it's good to shake it up once in a while, it gives me an entirely different outlook. I think Rascal enjoys it too. He found a comfortable spot out of the way and watched to see what I was going to do next.
This little angel went perfectly on the tag which I made the sides in swirls and curves. She does look a little sad but I suppose angels are really, when they look at us and wish they could help us be better. Diane
