Anything but a card: Earrings

Good morning everyone!

I hope your extended weekend was awesome and if you didn't have that extra day I hope it was still jammed packed with fun/family/food and crafting.

This week at Jackson's Digital Expressions the team welcomed a wonderful digi stamp company My Heart Pieces again :) You'll be seeing more from them at JDE as well.

The hosting team was the Altered Art Group that means we work on "anything but a card."

I've seen a few videos here and there online and decided to give bottled cap earrings a go.

Robert has so many neat and interesting digi drawings when I found "Profile 7" I knew she'd make some cool earrings. I copied and pasted the image then flipped one for that mirror image and reduced the size so that I can fit it on the bottle cap.

This was my very first time working on earrings of any kind (please be gentle on the comments (; ) I think I did quite alright so I'm going to have to make a necklace to go with these earrings to make it a complete set.

Well ladies and gentlemen I tried to keep it short and sweet this time ;) I know I blabber too much sometimes on writing but I'm awfully quiet in person heehee. Don't forget to visit http://jacksonsdigitalexpressions.blogspot.com/ for our weekly challenge and also visit this week's sponsor : http://myheartpiecesdigitalstamp.blogspot.in/ a very sweet artist lady to work with.

Thank you so much for visiting.
