Sweet Sixteen, and all that...

I wasn’t sure where I was going when I first started working on this tag/card, but somewhere along the line it turned into a birthday card.
I think I’ll add “Sweet Sixteen” somewhere.

The charm is too big, but it turned into a little “gift” tag (or card) for that sweet special someone.

The lace was an afterthought (and I see from the photo that it is way too white), but I wanted to give her a bit of a younger look.

The heart and the gold filigree are actually from this wonderful wrapping paper and the fabric is from some samples I purchased at a “going out of business” sale.

The young lady is from a 1975 Needleworks magazine (and I hope it’s okay to use!)

Thanks for stopping by…

Hero Arts Spring Challenge

No, this isn’t a spring color combo…

but it is bright and cheery, which is something we need in our neck of the woods today since we’ve had snow, ice and wind the past two days.

I used the Happy Hello clear stamp set (Cl231).

Since I have yet to venture into the world of “Copic-ing,” I decided instead to use some Prima Daisy Doodles to add color.

Happy Spring everyone…

I love the concept of the wood tags and cards, so I think I'm going to stick with them for a while.

I'm not happy with this one and would love to re-work it.

Problem is, it's covered with decoupage sealer.

At least I didn't use my original...

Caardvarks Challenge

Ditto for this photo...

Again, sorry to be reposting this photo from yesterday's "Frontier Lace" series, but I just went to visit the Caarvark's site and saw their current challenge, and well...I just couldn't resist.

Again, don't know if this tag qualifies...

What fun!

Thanks, Caardvarks!

Forgot one...

Frontier Lace

It took me a bit longer to get around to it, but I finally got the craft room cleaned up.

It took me all day Thursday and on Friday,  I stared crafting first time in months.

I call them Frontier Lace…

I used this fabric, which I  love.
I hope this is just the beginning...

Something this way is coming…

I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since I last posted.

School just took over my life.

It’s gotten better, though, and Spring Break starts this Friday…yea!

So I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll do some crafting.

I STILL have to get that craft room cleaned up.

Now, the only times I go in there is to get something I need for other, non-craft stuff.

But see these...

Something is a coming.

I figure, if I put myself out here, in a public sort of way, then I WILL have to do something.

Hope to be back nest week…
