Arty Farty Friday :p

Welcome to Arty Farty Friday!!!! Excuse the name this is what you get when you brainstorm with an 8 year old.

Anyway hopefully every Friday or there abouts I will share some sort of craft project I have been doing. This is my way of trying to actually get something done rather than just dreaming about it.

So this week I have been making a card, nothing flash, don't get too excited. I saw this on Kiki(verde)'s blog and thought how cute is that and how quick and easy is that, even better! I needed a card for my dear hubby for Valentines day and hopefully he will like this one. We don't do a lot for Valentines day anymore being the old married couple that we are lol and if we do do anything like go out to dinner it usually involves three childerbeasts, yeah romantic ;o) So at least this way he gets something that has had a bit of time and love put into it which is sometimes lacking in our day to day busy lives.

As you can see, very simple. Didn't go out and buy anything new, just used what was in the craft box. Pattern is courtesy of Kiki(verde) which you can download :o)


I love any sort of applique and in this case cut and paste! I think I'm still five years old :p

And the finished product, which had a quick swipe of distressed ink around the edges of the owl to give it that old look.

And this is what is on the inside. Awwwwwwwwwwwww lol.


  1. Sooo cute! It turned out great. I'm in the same boat about valentines except I only have one childerbeast. 8D

  2. this is so sweet!

    thanks for your comment on my blog.... as to my backgrounds... all my backgrounds are handmade, either painting, spritzing or collaging.

    happy valentines day!
