Butterflies and Morgan's Art World

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

I am so excited about today's post - I have some new things to share however first of all I want to share the project I made for Morgan Fitzsimon's Art World.

I absolutely loved coloring this beautiful butterfly image from Morgan Fitzsimons called Fae 18.  There are actually four different images however I chose just one for this project.  This is a altered wall hanging that I re-cycled into this finished project you see above.  It measures approximately 8" x 8".  The rest of the details of this project are at the end of this post.

If you would like to take a look at some of Morgan's gorgeous Art Work here is link:  Morgan Fitzsimons

There's a new Challenge Blog in Blogland coming soon along with a Blog Hop as well as introducing the Creative Team.  I am so delighted to (still) be a part of this team. We are now on Facebook under the name Morgan's Art World.   
It's a closed group however that doesn't mean you can't come over and join us. I will share more details as more information is available.  Here is the link to Morgan's FB page: 

and here is the link to the new Challenge Blog Website:

As you can tell there's a lot going on and we are looking forward to your joining us and joining in all the new things that are happening.  And last but not least here are the rest of the details about this project:

I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of the original wall hanging before I started altering it.  It wasn't until I have more than half way done that I realized I made my mistake.  There's nothing I can do about it now so I might as well stop kicking myself.  

1.  Lightly sanded the piece of wood.
2.  Used Mod Podge and glued down various cardstocks.
3.  Colored the butterfly with Copics.
4.  Fussy cut out the butterfly and added on top of cardstock.
5.  Sealed entire front of piece with Mod Podge.
6.  Added lace around top and bottom.
7.  Added flowers.

Copic colors used:

BV34, B95, B97
G21, G43, G46, G94
R81, R83, R85

Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello.  I always appreciate the comments - it makes my day.  I really hope you will come over and join our FB group as well as our new challenge blog.  If you have any questions or need more information just let me know.

With hugs and smiles

Cupcake and a Celebration

Hello Lovely Ladies
I hope your weekend has been fabulous thus far.  It's been sunny here with a cool breeze.  It's been a welcome relief from all the cold and rainy days.   Today I am sharing a card I made in celebration of a one year anniversary for Leigh S-B Designs.  She created this cute cupcake image in celebration as well as for a challenge of sorts. 
I created my heart shaped card and used lots of Washi tape to create the background.  I all used white Cardstock borders to help break up the color.  I colored the cupcake and the number ONE with Copic's. 
Here's the card I created:

Leigh congratulations on your first year anniversary.  I hope you have many more.  Your images are wonderful and fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by.  It always makes me smile

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…

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…
