"Go Green"

Hello again My Dear Sweet Friends

I just happen to have my DT hat on with Eclectic Ellapu.  We have a new challenge this month and our theme is "Go Green".  And here is my project for this challenge:

Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog

I took and old frame and painted it green.  
I had come across this saying months ago and just loved it.  I decided to save it for something special.  Well it fit perfectly once I added some background cardstock which made me really happy.  I used some extra special lace I found at a yard sale a long time ago and added it to the top and bottom of the frame.  I used an old green leaf from some plastic flowers and added the butterfly on top.  Ironically the leaves I rescued were gorgeous and I just couldn't bear the thought of tossing them out with the ugly flowers.  And I am so glad I kept them (and I have lots left for future projects).

It's been a challenging several years for me and this saying has been very inspirational for me.  It's exciting to finally have it turned into a completed project that I can look at all the time. And of course - the butterflies are the frosting on the cake.  

I really hope you will join in our challenge this month.  All the information is on the blog website.

Thanks for stopping by - I really appreciate it.

With hugs and smiles

I just love this gorgeous bride image and she was fun but a little intimidating to color.  In all honesty, I have to learn how to color veils and other sheer items and hopefully it's a class Alyce - Kit and Clowder.  
I hope you will join in the June Challenge and looking forward to seeing what you create with this gorgeous image from Morgan.
Have a great day!!

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…
