Vintage Typewriter Thank you very much for... card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a thank you card I made for my crafty ribbons team mate Laura who was very kind and sent me a card when I was having a hard time :-) I used an image of a vintage typewriter and a message which I shaped and placed on 3D foam to give proper dimension from the paper. I used Papermania and Tim Holtz papers, DCWV metallic cardstock, Rose ribbons from Crafty Ribbons, lace, a key charm and a wooden heart which I threaded with pink bakers twine.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

  9. What a beautiful thank you card!! I just love that typewriter!! Such a fun way to be creative and add a sentiment in a different way. I was just wondering if there was a typewriter image somewhere before I came across this card. I just received a gorgeous 6x6 pad of paper from Echo park -Head over Heels that has mini typewriters in the background and I thought to myself it would be a great match and so fun with a typed message coming out of a typewriter.

    Thanks so much for sharing with us at ODBD this week.

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
