Mother's Day

It feels so wonderful to be creating again.  Making something always makes my heart sing.  Do you feel that way too??
I have been working on some ideas for Mother's Day.  I decided to make some gift card holders.  The theme for the Tuesday Alchemy blog is black and white I and decided to see what I could come up with for my first gift holder.  I will have more styles at my Etsy Shop (Hugs4theHeart) later this week.   

Be sure to check out the Tuesday Alchemy blog and see what others have created. I really look forward to every Tuesday to see what the challenge is for that week.  Sometimes I feel like that woman in the old Mervyn's commercial with her face and hands pressed up against the glass front door chanting "open, open, open).
This gift card measures 3.25" x 5".  I used some heavy chipboard and covered the front and back with cardstock.  I added a large white flower with lots of  bling for the center of it.  Rather than just attaching the gift card to the back I made a little holder and added more bling.  I am also going to add a magnet to the back so it can be used a refrigerator magnet.

I will be posting some new items tomorrow so I hope you will check back and let me know what you think.

With smiles,

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
