only.......A WORD......

that is SUCH AN IMPOSSIBILITY!! I am not a person of few words!!! .......but alas that is the challenge over at 
(and I didn't doooo tooo well with that!!)

I started my project out with the word
(it's my life theme right now)
but it seemed so alone without it's friends
"LAUGH" and "LOVE"
cause that's what life is ALL ABOUT!!

NOW......truth be told......this project began with a piece of cardboard that came in a box we had at work.....I started the process of ripping and tearing.....crumbling and inking......
OH SO GOOD FOR THE SOUL!!

Then I pulled out some Canvas Corp Goodies........
the Burlap Tag (part of the red flower), 
Handmade 12 x 12 paper 
and of course the Canvas!!

Followed by several Sizzix dies.......
Flower Layers #6



I just love the "distress" look of the Fabulous Flourish Stamp with Embossing Ink and White UTEE!

I tried something with "LOVE"
....I heat embossed it with White UTEE and before it cooled, I stamped the large grid background stamp from the Flower Art stamp set into the UTEE. (be careful with this as it did leave a bit on the stamp which I was able to pick off!!)

and there you have it
"A WORD"
or two or three!!

Be sure to check out my other teamies work......cause they are
WICKED SUPER TALENTED!!

AND........DON'T FORGET to link up your creations to be in the running for a FANTABULOUS SHOPPING SPREE!!!
