I decoupaged!

I first saw tile coasters on Etsy and thought "I can do that!!"

They were a lot of fun to make. I had previously covered some cheap 29 cent tiles but the effect is SO much nicer on the tumbled marble ones, which I found at Home Depot ($4.99 for 9 tiles). I didn't photo the bottom but they are finished with small cork circles glued to each corner to prevent scratching. Can be used individually or together as a trivet.

Thanks for looking!

Kristina Werner Colour Inspiration #50

Thought I would also play along with this challenge this week. Unusual colour combo for me so I kept it really simple and even tried some free hand faux stitching like Kristina does. However, I need some more practise at it as you can see...ha ha. The really sad thing is that I have a perfectly good and perfectly PINK sewing machine collecting dust in my craft room. Oh well, one of these days.

I haven't been making many (any) cards lately. I was away on two trips in April, one for fun and one for business. I was also down with a nasty chest cold for about a week. My husband and I also did an overhaul on my craft room last week so I have not had much time to create anything, but I plan to have me some fun this weekend!

As I will need a Mother's Day card soon I decided to play along with the LSC #37 this week. I love the colour combo and it gave me a chance to use PTI Hibiscus Burst paper. My friend Charlene, a Loonie Lady herself, and I found pink envelopes on clearance for 30 cents per package of 20 envelopes! They match PTI Hibiscus Burst paper perfectly. I think I bought about 300 envelopes so lots of pink cards coming up for the ladies in my life!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
