CH - 34 Anything but a Card or Tag

Hello dear sweet friends - hope you are doing well and happy!!
Boy do I feel out of loop in the creative department.  It feels so great to be back in full swing.  The past two weeks  have been busy with hospital visits and errands (for family members).  Fortunately everyone is doing better and that's what counts.

This week's challenge with Tuesday Alchemy is "Anything but a Card or Tag." 

We have two wonderful sponsors this week:

For this weeks challenge I decided to alter this old beat up wood wine bottle container I found at a yard sale about a year ago.  It holds two bottles of wine.  

Of course I wanted it to have a Paris theme and a slight Shabby Chic look to it.  This was actually a pretty quick project and I love how it turned out.  

I planned on keeping this one for myself and was even going to add more embellishments to the front of it but hadn't had the time yet.  A friend of a friend saw it and fell in love with it.  It made her so happy I just had to let it go home with her.  

So dear friends please jump in and join us in this week's challenge.  There is some great inspiration from our design team and guest design team this week.  You can find each of their blog links on the left side of the Tuesday Alchemy blog.  I am so looking forward to seeing what you create.

Hugs and smiles

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…
