Hot Summer Days!

Hope your all doing well.  I'm doing pretty good except that I pulled a muscle in my right arm and it's taking a long time to heal.  I seem to get better than I do something simple and I've injured it all over again.  Of course that's my crafting arm.  Which means I've had to slow down on my projects for now.  Hopefully it will get better soon so I can start more projects.

I thought I'd share a really cute project that I made recently.  As most of you know I'm a huge fan of Prima's Julie Nutting paper doll stamps.  I seem to use these a lot in my crafting projects.  Todays example is so freaking cute!  Sorry, I'm a little bias.  Hope you enjoy it! 

Not sure if you can tell, but I used Tim Holt's crackle over the brown ink on the door.  It's a subtle look, but really makes the door a little more authenticate.  I found the door in the wood section at Michael's.  The bird is by Martha Stewart.  The large flower is by the Paper Studio, and the small flowers are by Recollections. 
I hope you all enjoy this project as much as I enjoy sharing it with all of you.  I'm so honored to be able to share it with you guys, because as a person who suffers from chronic pain, which can make me isolated, I don't get to share my art with many people.   I hope you all know how much it means to me to be able to share my art with all of you guys.  Even if it's only one person who see this blog, it really means the world to me.  Thank you all for checking in with me.  Happy crafting!!!!


  1. Hi Kathy,

    Your card is so adorable! I love the Tim Holtz crackle paint and I can see it on your door. I hope your arm gets better soon. I'm sending good vibes to you!

  2. Thanks so much Donna! Believe it or not, this isn't a card, it's a wood door. Thanks for the good vibes, I can use it!
