I really want to post something

But this cold has got me down for the count.  I can't remember when I last made something. All the challenges I love doing are on hold until I feel better.  Just a stupid cold, but here it is 9PM and I'm going to bed.
(That's way early for me.)
A good friend lent me her Cricut (can you believe it!!!!!!!) and I cut a few things and then sat down to rest.
So even though this is not new, here is a piece I finished awhile back and never showed you:
Let's see.  The frame came from a thrift store and I added some broken china crackle paint to it.
Coloured a canvas with (I think it was) shabby shutters ink. Stamped the word on it with a Paper Parachute stamp.  (Aren't you impressed that I knew that?  I usually don't, after all.)
I won the dichroic heart in the One World, One Heart event from The Art Junk Gypsy and Bottle Cap Inc. provided the image which I put inside the cap and crackled.
Paper backing behind the canvas and the ATC.
The ATC itself is a piece of metal flashing run through my cuttlebug with a Timmie embossing folder, then I blotted it with various alcohol inks and cut it into strips.  Wove the strips together in a mismash and VOILA!
Something to fill that empty spot on my living room wall.
I'm done whining.
Night night.
You have fun.
