Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #13: Mother Dear

Today is such an exciting day!!  I can finally share I am now part of the Tuesday Alchemy Design Team.  I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing and talented group of women.  I hope you will check out all their blogs as well as becoming a part of the Tuesday Alchemy community if you haven't done so already.

This weeks challenge is called Mother, Dear and this is my first project submitted as a design team member.   I hope you will consider submitting your own project for this challenge.

The canvases are 5" x 5" and I painted them white.  Added some gorgeous paper to the front, back and inside.  Of course I had to add as much bling as possible by using stickles, strands of pearls, an elegant black button, along with lace and ric rac.  I love the colors and the photo is of myself and my two amazing daughters when they surprised me with a trip to Disneyland for my 50th birthday.  We had so much fun.  

Thanks for looking and I hope you will visit again soon as I am putting together my first blog give away.  Have a blessed day!!!

I have also submitted this project to the following blogs:

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.
