Thanks to everyone who played along and left some love on all our blogs! We truly aprreciate your kind words.
I was ambitious earlier last week and you'll never guess what I did? It was a stretch for me, but I'm so glad I did it. Are you ready to see it???? It looks like a yummy dish of some sort of noodles, doesn't it? Nope, it's a crafty project. I tea-dyed my own twill. I thought is was a very ambitious project for myself, but in reality it was super easy. I used some good 'ol Lipton tea bags, about 5, and filled up a bowl with boiling water. Dunked my twill, kept tossing it around in the bowl until it was soaked and then let it sit in the tea for almost 40 minutes. Pulled it out, gave it a squeeze to loose the excess water, then let it dry on some paper towel!

Here's a card I made with it.


LOVE that music score from Music of My Heart....it's perfect for all occasions. Finished it off with a simple birthday sentiment from Just Wanted to Say! Papers and flower are from Green at Heart by Basic Grey and punched border is Apron Lace by Fiskars! I added a bit more distressing by crumpling up the sheet music and sponging on some Tim Holtz tea dye ink-LOVin' that stuff! I challenge you....try something a bit more ambitious this weekend. The results are sure to be fun! Thanks for stopping by today! Hugs, Lisa

  8. Love it! It was easier than you thought right! Isn't that funny how in our heads it seems near impossible and then we sit down and do it like it is nothing! Thanks for the inspiration!
