A few new items to share!

 Happy Sunday to all...

I made this card for a friend who is going to have a rough couple of weeks ahead of her. She has to under go some awful surgery. Hope it brings a smile to her face, even if only for a moment.
 This male card I made for my cousin Paul. I opened the mail box yesterday and found a dvd he sent me that he made and it is old (really old) home movies from when we were kids. He is like 10 years older than me but there are pics of my Grandpa and I was about 2 yrs. old sitting on his lap!! Also pics of my parents in their early 40's. I baled like a baby watching it!!!! So I wanted to do something for him.
These atc's......well what can I say. I was just fiddlefarting around one day and anyone who knows me knows I love horses so this is what I came up with. Sometimes when I am making these I do feel like I am 13 again!!!

Thank you for visiting my blog and have a great week....until next time..........

Hello and happy Friday today!! This flower took forever to make!! It is my take on the Prima Moulin Rouge. It came out ok. I do like the Prima one better!! I used velvet, lace, flower trim and some beaded trim. Thanks for looking. Have a great and scrappy weekend!!

I made this page for a scrapbook class I am teaching. I wanted to keep the costs down for everyone so I came up with this. I used 3 sheets of card stock..1 for the background and two for the design. Used 1 prima flower which does not match because I saved the ones that do for the girls to use. With the scraps left over form matting I made flowers that match also the curls. Had to use that tattered turquoise ribbon!!! So this page cost about $5.00 to make. Not to bad considering how much stuff I like to put on a page!!! Well thank you for visiting

 Introducing my FEATHERRFLIES!!! I was collecting my roosters feathers to use on my pages and wanted to do something different with them so I started fiddling around and came up with the featherrflies. To much time on my hands?? I wish! But these were fun to make and I hope to get some in my etsy shop soon.

So far this is my favorite one. Don't know why but it is. Kinda reminds me of a crab.
 You can't really tell but this one has that green sheen in the black on the top feathers and I used hackle feathers for the bottom wings. Well thats about it for now.

New "Grab Bags" in the store..

Hi there, Hope everyone is having a fantastic day...Here in California we have not really had a winter yet...waiting on some most needed ra...
