This is a commission piece. It felt so good to get back in the saddle and create again. I felt a bit of my old self today while making this. Boy did that feel nice! I wasn't sure I would ever feel like creating again.
I love this saying and isn't it true? It DOES take a long time to grow a friend.

This card reflects my latest color crush: blues and browns. I can't seem to get enough of the combo.
I want to decorate a beach house with these colors. Anyway- this is a pretty card I just made for a friend of mine. The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations dies. The ivy stem and leaves is from Spellbinders, as is the 'Happy Birthday" die cut.
happy crafting! And to quote George Harrison: Little Darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter,
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here, Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and I say it's all right.

Having just lost my husband 4 months ago, I have a heavy heart and wasn't up to decorating this year. So I made this little creche and put it on my dining room table with a small light. It was perfect. Just enough for me to remember why we celebrate. Christmas was my late husbands favorite time of year and so that makes this first Christmas without him all the harder.
The creche is made of 3 ATC's that I decorated on both sides and then put together as the triangle. The figures are tiny miniatures i found at Hobby Lobby. I used snow and glitter glue to glue them down. Then I covered a wood block with papers and added the whole thing to a slice of birch to make the stand.

I made some really pretty paper leaves for my dining room table for autumn. I love how they turned out. I first glued vintage papers onto card stock and painted them all with Azo gold acrylic paint. Then I die cut the leaves. Then I added more colors of paint to make them look ages, coppery and vintage. Then came a little diamond glitter. The end result is a pretty vintage-y looking paper leaves that really look nice against the wood table. Click on the pictures to see them up close- all the colors...
Have a blessed Thanksgiving...
