Frippery- a Bit of Something to Lighten the Mood.


Goodness knows that things around here have been pretty intense and while super busy with other pursuits on my days sans- electricty I did really miss my crafty time. So today I took a bit of time to visit my always favorite Graphics Fairy and was struck by one of her newer images. 

It was crazy but I knew instantly what I wanted to do with this sweet little shoe image and went to work on it that very moment. This was totally a speed craft since all it took was adding the word "welcome" to the image while in Photo Shop and then sizing and printing on some card stock. After that I cut it out, inked the edges to age them up a bit and then tada! it was ready to be nesteld into my flower arrangment out on the porch by the front door.





To keep the card in place when the winds might blow I used  small glue dot stuck to a wee bit of the flower but you could also use a floral pin or florist pick ( you know those things that look like small plastic tridents??)  Quick, easy and it makes me smile, can't ask for much more these days!
