Challenge 21 - Anything Goes

Happy Tuesday Dear Friends,

This week at Tuesday Alchemy our challenge is "Anything Goes."  This is where you can submit any kind of project you want to.  And if you make anything but a card you will get an extra chance to win a prize with one of our amazing sponsors - The Greeting Farm and Live a Beadiful Life.  Please read the "requirements" on our Tuesday Alchemy Blog to make sure your entry counts.  We want everyone to be included and to have fun.  I can't wait to see what you create and share with us.

Our Spotlight Artist this week is Palmetto Peaches where two sisters Debbie and Ashley have combined their love of eco-friendly crafting to create their own Etsy Shop.  We have included their story on our Tuesday Alchemy blog and hope you will visit their shop.

This week I made an altered magnetic board and turned vintage looking buttons into magnets.  I absolutely love taking something old and making it into something new.  You know the old saying - "One woman's trash is another's woman's treasure."   I like to use all styles, shapes and sizes of frames to make these magnet boards. These are actually one of my favorite altered items to make and they make great gifts too!!!  

Over the weekend I found a wonderful blog called The Outlawz where they have all kinds of challenges.  I decided to enter my Altered Frame Magnetic Board in their Paper A'La Mode Challenge.  I hope you will check out their blog and join the group.  There web address is:

I am also submitting this project to another amazing blog I found recently called Stampin' Sisters in Christ:

Cupcake and a Celebration

Hello Lovely Ladies
I hope your weekend has been fabulous thus far.  It's been sunny here with a cool breeze.  It's been a welcome relief from all the cold and rainy days.   Today I am sharing a card I made in celebration of a one year anniversary for Leigh S-B Designs.  She created this cute cupcake image in celebration as well as for a challenge of sorts. 
I created my heart shaped card and used lots of Washi tape to create the background.  I all used white Cardstock borders to help break up the color.  I colored the cupcake and the number ONE with Copic's. 
Here's the card I created:

Leigh congratulations on your first year anniversary.  I hope you have many more.  Your images are wonderful and fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by.  It always makes me smile

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…

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…
