Iron and Roses

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

It's been a crazy week for me and I am really looking forward to this weekend.  I haven't been feeling well and I am going to just crawl under the cover, take my medicines as ordered by the doctor and  hope I am feeling better on Monday.  What about your weekend plans?  

Today I am sharing my Fitztown DT project for the March challenge and there's still enough time for you to join in.  The theme is "Use Green". 




This is an altered hot plate I created using Fitztown Floral #5.  
I found this little gem at a yard sale and it was screaming for attention as you can see from the top photo.  I already knew which Fitztown Image I wanted to use.  This was a quick and simple project and all I had to do was:

*Removed the ceramic coaster from the cast iron hot plate.
*Added the cardstock to the top and sealed with Mod Podge and let dry.
*Colored the ROSE with Copics and let dry overnight.
*Added the Rose image to the top of cardstock with Mod Podge.
*Allowed drying time.
*Added 3 more coats of Mod Podge with drying time in-between.

And that's all there was to it.  

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you will join in our challenge and looking forward to seeing your creations.

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.
