Smeared and Smudged "Bloody Valentine Blog Hop" Day 1 of 3

Hello all.
Today is the first day of the Valentine Blog Hop. I can't wait to go hopping around and check out all the Bloody goodness.
My craftybrain as taken a vacation on me but I do have a couple thing's for you to gander upon.
Firstly I made this tag last night for this hop.
What didn't I do to this tag? I made the paper homemade out of newspaper back in the summer and  cut out a tag last night. Put some white gesso lightly over it and then some rock candy.
Then the poor hearts went through it too. They are a digi from http://www.smearedink.com/ of course.
I first colored them then put glossy stuff on um then some rock candy and lastly for more crackle used that crackle accent stuff. I just couldnt put enough breaks in those hearts. ahaah I tried to make some blood with some embossing powder but I dont think it ever turned out what I wanted. oh yea some glitter on the heart wings.
Then I have been dying to show you guy's my weather vane checker thing I made over the weekend.
I hope you guys get a kick out of this. I'm actually gonna hang this on the outside of my place.
Just to let you know one thing before you see and read the pic. It's definitely stiff today...
You'll see what I mean in a sec..

Definitely Stiff here today....ahhaa love it.
I painted a board I found outside left over from porch we built over summer and used white paint (Duh) wrote the words out and colored a rubber stamp image from smeared ink and thats about it.
Redneck Weather Checker I call it.
Well hope you all have a good time checking out everyone's craft's today.
