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…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.
