You are My Hero-Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday.  I get really excited when it is Heartfelt Creations New Release Day! And today just happens to be one of those days.
The Everyday Heros Collection is one Collection i used up right away, so much in fact when i completed 7 samples with this collection to send back i only had two sheets of paper left.

I will be sharing all those projects with you over the course of April, so be sure to come back and check out what i have created for inspiration for you. 
Today I am sharing an Altered Envelope with you.
This envelope measures 6x9 and had a tie closure.


I had so much fun with this collection and this stamp image i felt would be perfect to hold a metal clock.


It was so cold here when i went to photograph this project, my clock face actually went foggy, so i apologize for that. 

I used the Botancial Rose flowers on this project

I was just so thrilled at how this turned out

  7. Hi Karan:

    Just been introduced to your blog and wonderful techniques via Kathy Clements blog recommendations of your work. I really like the envelope project and the colors used. I have been a cardmaker for several years, and am latching on to good tutorials online to teach me new techniques in paper crafting such as your grungy clock envelope.
