Saturday Crepe

 Okay.... so I've been a bad blogger.... I have my reasons... which I will share later...
But today I sat down and made a Valentine so I could do a swap with Christian Paper Artists ...

Pulled out the roll of red crepe paper that I bleached years ago...
If you weren't here or don't remember... here is a tutorial for it.
It's really great to have around.... and it's so easy to gather on your sewing machine!
I gathered a bunch (takes like a minute) and then hot glued it to the back of this card!!!

And...here's a shout out to Sandy..... here's your rabbit ... happy as she can be.... sitting on a shelf in my art room keeping watch over all.  (see bleached crepe paper roll behind her, btw)

Go bleach some crepe paper... or at least wash it!

Well, I ran over here quick at the site of the word 'crepe' and thought you'd have a delicious recipe for me! Awwww...got my hopes up and they popped like a balloon.
Well, I LOVE your Valentine...I wonder who's name I'm going to draw for you to send it to!

You make cutie things like that and you're allowed to be as bad a blogger as you like -- just so long as you show them to us!

Gorgeous! (my word for today) Crepe paper is a close second to paper doilies when it come to instant "Valentine". Yours is just perfect!
