TCP Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope your weekend was fabulous. Mine was spent reading my new favorite novel called "Love in the Time of Cholera" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He is a Colombian writer and winner of a Nobel prize for Literature amongst many other things. Being Colombian myself I always support all the talent and goodness Colombia brings since the news always does a "great job" of only portraying the negative. I love his books and this one has left me not wanting to put it down. I have a few pages left so once I finish I will be back with some more stamping. But for today I have a project I made earlier this weekend using my new The Cat's Pajamas Valentine's Day images. I altered one of those tea tins that were so popular during Christmas time. I took the same idea and did it as a Valentine's Day goodies tin. I altered it with some Crate Paper "Hey, Sugar" patterned paper. The stamped images are colored in with my Copics and stickles where added for a little bling. I also pulled out my scalloped scissors to adorn the trim. The heart tag is from the new nestabilities die cuts. The heart image was stamped with VersaMagic Plumeria chalk ink and popped on dimensional for a 3d effect. Well, that is all I have to share today but tomorrow brings some new cards. Make sure to stop on by.
Hugs,
Ana

What a fun project! I love that book. Did you read One Hundred Years of Solitude? It's one of my favorites. They are making Love in the Time of Cholera into a movie -- I should reread it before it comes out!!

This is very pretty. Someone will be very lucky to receive it. I too read that book. It was good, but I had to read it very slowly for some reason. I hear a lot of people talk about 100 years of Solitude also. I tried that one, but just couldn't do it. Maybe I need to give it another try.

this is so cute!
I didn't know you were Columbian! I had to study Latin American History while at A&M. The professor, Dr. Schmidt, was very knowledgable.. I was overwhelmed with what we had to learn.. such a rich history in Central and South America!
