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…

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…
