Slow Start!

I took today off as soon as the date for PTI SAF was announced.  For some reason I just couldn't get started & of course, there were some interruptions.  I'll probably accomplish more tomorrow than today & I work tomorrow--LOL! Figure I may as well post the 2 projects I've done so far.  
6-accessories-challenge
Didn't buy a bag of large sticks, but hubby eats a popsicle every day so I recycled one of the sticks to try out the bangle technique for the Accessories Challenge . What a fun project & now I'd like to make a big one.  I used gold Lumiere paint which is absolutely gorgeous in person.  Then I heat embossed the little heart from PTI Heart 2 Heart #2 with Zing Grapefruit ep & added tiny black gems.
4-patterns-challenge5-threads-challengeLove all the sketches for the Patterns Challenge & it really helped me to have the dimensions.  I also immediately was drawn to the braided twine flowers for the Threads Challenge, so combined the two using Nicole's sketch.  
Nichole-2I used the smallest Snowflake Flurries die for the flower base & leaves from Friendly Flowers stamped in Spring Moss.  The sentiment from Take 3 Summer is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa on a Vintage Cream panel.  A strip of Spring Moss cardstock was stamped with a dot from Harvest Berries in matching ink. 
Hope you've had a great day & I'll be catching up on blogs soon. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Edited to add: Entering the challenge at SSS Wednesday.

  8. I can never take days off to craft the day away... I mean I can get the day off but I can't seem to accomplish much with them, so I can relate to that. You got some nice things made though. I like that flower and now I have some ideas brewing.... of course I'll forget them by the time I get home.
