Some things are too fun to only do once

I really had a lot of fun doing that ripped paper project that I showed you yesterday so I did a little something else.
This time I scaled it small enough to fit on a card.
Instead of taking a picture I scanned it

The heart is empty because I couldn't decide what I wanted to write in there. Plus if I waited till after I scanned the card I could play in photoshop and change the saying as many times as I wanted. Don't you just love her hair? Instead of ripping the paper for the hair I cut small triangles of paper and then fringed it with scissors.

I darkened it up just a bit and then added three different sayings.

I was so thrilled with the way this one came out that I sat and doodled to see what other things I could do with this technique so you may be seeing more of this.

you are on a roll in your newest and greatest addiction... and since i am not good at doodles, i could find a color book and use that.. are you laughing yet at the thought of me tearing paper and gluing? the hair looks like mine in the AM except mine is not that long.

When I rip paper, it doesn't come out looking that good. Now, when it comes to duct tape, Jackson Pollock ain't got nothing on me!

Adorable and nothing is better than getting a homemade care. Nothing.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. ☺

Very nice, Ann.... You are smart to leave the heart blank --until you are ready to send the card..... Great idea.

Thanks for sharing.
