Finally!!!! back to the blogg...It has been a busy week...The diet was going great until the weekend! My husband wanted to go out to dinner Friday after work & who can resist chips & salsa sitting right in front of you?? I did make it to the gym a few times, so guess I am doing O.K. with that.

I made this as a Valentine decoration just for ME! The letters are something new at Michales, our local craft store...they are wood & only a couple of bucks each.

First I painted them black, then I Mod Podge scrapbook paper to the front. The paper I chose in single sheets at a local scrapbook store. Once the paper is on the front I sanded all of the edges & inked with black stampin' up ink & a sponge. Then added the embellishments....and that's it!! very quick & easy.

Now I am going to blogg surf for a while....have only had a chance here & there to take sneek peeks at what you all have been up to!...I'm so excited!!!

Happy Crafting!

Oh Gwen - what timely and beautiful inspiration! I had 2 letters similar to these (well, blank wood! Around A4 size - 21cm x 30cm) off a friend for Christmas and I need to make them up soon! (an 'S' and a 'U'!)
