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:

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…
