For a friend!!

Ok this will be my last post till the new year!! I made this for a friend..for her daughter's graduation present. I am a little late but I still think she will like it. I have one of my featherrflies on this. I make these butterflies out of our chicken feathers. Nothing is safe around me!!

So I wanted to take the time to wish everyone a Happy New Year!! As I get older the years seem to fly by even faster! I hope this new year brings happiness to all of you!

 Well late Merry Christmas! I love Christmas but I also love when it is over! So much preparing for 20 minutes of eating and depending on your kids about 10 minutes of present opening!! But I do love having little ones around. Their freshness about Christmas keeps me going. I did a lot of tags and present toppers this year. I love working with ink.
 Thia tag was fun to make...another thing I love to do is distress. I try not to but I just can't stop myself!! Sometimes I think I over do it but oh well.
 I wasn't to pleased with this one so I will leave it at that.
 Now this is my favorite one, naturally with the horse on it. I had a lot of fun with this one!! Also I love this color!!
 This one I made for my grand daughter's present. I recycled the image of another card. I thought it was cute and perfect to use on her present!!
This was for my hubby's present...he went deer hunting (and didn't get one...yesh!! for the deer) so  I had to put a deer on his.
Well I hope everyone had happy and safe holidays!!! Now if we can make it through New Years we will be doing good. Can't believe another year has passed!! Thank you for visiting!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

Card and Tags!!

   Happy Holidays all!! Hope the hustle and bustle don't get to you. I made this card for my 2 year old grand daughter. We just celebrated her b-day and I can not believe she is two already!!  She is adorable and I think my son is gong to get some pay back with her. She is a tough little one!! Of coarse I am getting a big kick out of that!!!                                                                                

 Here are a few tags I made. I did get inspired by all the sites having, well I guess tag competitions!!! I did not enter any but had some fun making them. I do love to use the ink!!! A fav for me. I also ink the ribbon to match.

This one below I used ink, paint and glitter. I always put a seal of glossy accents over the tag. I just like the effect it gives.
This was my first time embossing!! I have always wanted to have that to add to my stuff and I finally was able to get a few supplies but I have a lot to learn there but I LOVE to learn new techniques.
So that is about it...I hope you are having a wonderful start to the new week...I am wanting to get some baking done, don't ya just love how the house smells when you're baking. Reminds me of being a kid and my Ma making cookies. Great memories!!! Well so long for now...have a good one.

A tribute to Charcoal and a couple of tags!!

 Well I have neglected my blog lately. This is a layout I did of a cat we were lucky to share 17 years with. She was a great cat. Charcoal was a mother hen when our daughter was a toddler and if daughter cried Charcoal would run to her from where ever she was and would get in her lap. She was a pound kitty and when I walked into the kitty room she had her paw through the bars and her toes were actually gesturing me to come over to her. That was that!! She had a home.

 Made this tag to kinda follow the Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas....I do not have the supplies he has but did my best with what I have. He makes some awesome tags and one day I will have those supplies!!!
Made this tag for a swap for over at Pages In Time. They have some cool swaps and the ladies there are awesome. So glad I was told of that site.

Well hopefully I can do some more scrapping this week. I get busy with other things...well ya all know that story....Thank you for taking a peek at my blog. Happy Holidays!!!
