So, sit back and grab yourself a Latte' as we dare to amaze you with our projects.

I decided to create a card that is so ME.. I love the traditional wedding/anniversary cards, with the elegance etc,  but I'm not all fancy and so decided to go a bit Primitive and I do have a silly sense of humore, so went that direction instead. I love the primitive style and I have my home decorated some what primitive :)

Here is the card I created:

I wanted to create an old crackled window frame that has been re-vamped into a chalk board.. Lots of details so lets get to some close ups:

Love this cute crow.. I know its not exactly a white dove, but those of us that love primitive, know that the crow is the way to go..LOL

I grabbed my brown wire and decided to create a primitive style hanger for the board, to look as if It's having on a the wall.. 

I added drops of glossy accents to the "berry's" on the twigs.. Love the way they turned out..

Here's a good close up of the crackle I created.. been holding onto my crackle medium and this was a great time to put it to good use.. 

My sun flower cluster with lots of primitive goodies..

and there ya have my take on today's wedding/anniversary blog hop theme :)

  1. really cute and fresh! I love the look, I was originally going to have my wedding outside at a farm and this would have been perfect!

  2. absolutley love this all the elements. how did you get the cracked paint look?

    1. Hi Cathy.. I first painted the cardstock with brown paint, then added a nice thick coat of "crackle medium" and once that was dry, I painted over that with white paint.. It only took a few minutes to crackle.. You can use Elmers glue as well if you don't have crackle medium :)

    2. thanks for the looks awesome!

  3. Ohhh, beautiful. This is truly a work of art. If I received this, I would frame it!!!
