~ TIOT 'peel offs' ~ SSW #127

today ~ remembrance day ~ in memory of our veterans ~ i fully respect and support you!
a moment of silence...on this 11th day ~ of this 11 month ~ on the 11 hour...'LEST WE FORGET'
if you get a chance ~ please take a moment to watch this video ~ done by terry kelly! 
...what a powerful message!

i hope everyone has had an awesome week! i have..and have been busy...busy!it's a really blistery, windy..chilly day here today! whoa! thinkin i'll stay and stay warm.hope you all have sunshine where you are! if so..please send some my way!
my first creation is for Try It on Tuesday ~ who's challenge this week is to create a tag using 'peels offs'.ok...i hunted high and low for those in my stash...to no avail. went shopping...couldn't find any either! so...i took an ol' sticker and created the outline of  the angel. i placed it down...distressed over it ~ then peeled it off...then handcut the inside angel out ~ leaving the masked effect around the angel.  i placed a paper doily behind it to give a 3D effect! ok...i tried! watch...next time i go shopping ~ those peel offs will probably be staring me in the face! 
for my 2nd creation ~ a card using another great sketch created by arlana over at
sweet sketch wednesday. and oh...i used my newsest stamp from sarah kay..isn't it adorable. yep...i can see me using that image lots. hope you don't get bored seeing it.
'thank you'
'details' (ah..another rainy day ~ sure doesn't make
for a clear crispy pic...ack!)

hope you all have a wonderful scrappy week!
and hugs

Hi Melody, I love that tag, you did a wonderful improvising and love the velvet ribbon. For your SSW card, that is an adorable image and you colored her so beautifully. Love the laciness you achieved with the sketch this week.

I get a little giddy waiting to see what you've created each week and my this week it's a beauty Melody! The lace all over is gorgeous, especially on the focal panels. It adds such wonderful dimension. And that adorable image is so detailed with your perfect coloring. This is so lovely - you certainly have the Midas touch when it comes to making stunning cards! Thanks for sharing this with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

It worked wonderfully melody! and all the better for being such a different way to use peeloffs. They do sometimes have their uses!
Hope all is happy in your world and the weather is better. November's such a dull month!
Much Love
