Pretty Things on Paper

These enchanting cards have gently landed in their new home yesterday. I think I saw the fairy wink! Thank you for such a lovely exchange Catherine, your art work is delightful and the inspiration immense.

I Have Been Tagged~See Nikki Here



The rules are:
1. Once tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post rules on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know that they've been tagged.

Ok, #1 click above to see Nikki's blog. # 2, giggle this is it. # 3 Seven weird or random facts:

My dentist gave me my first gold crown today.
I was reminded yet again, as of late, how short and sweet life can be.
My favorite bookstore owner worked his last day today.
I will be 4 x 11 next month....a sweet co-worker told me that!
There came a day in my life when I began living by my own rules.
With age comes wisdom.
I play by the rules when I have to ~ otherwise I do what is right!!!

#4 I am only going to tag one person ~ that's what is right for me! When I was a kid you only got tagged once.....lol. I will tag that person privately ~ then they can tag someone or seven, as they choose.

#5 Hi Nikki ;o} thanks for tagging me ~ this has been the perfect answer to a daily calendar suggestion for today, leap day ~ do something that scares you....well this kinda qualifies!

My first challenge at Arty Girlz.......yum what fun and my favorite colour too! Green postage stamp, background stamping and watercolour paper with green! Notice the gorgeous butterfly too.......can ya tell I love green?

Olive Street for TGIF!

Silly really, but this is one of my all time favorite cards! I made this some time ago, don't even know who I gave it to now....one of the various groups I have been part of for some years...the cardstock was quite light, hence a faint border.

If you can dream it...you can become it

My contribution for the Mixed Media Monday Flourishes Challenge. A 3X5 skinny

One World~One Heart

Photo


This is such a special way for people to connect to share art, ideas and things that are special. At first I thought I couldn't manage the time to do it and then realized that it means a lot to me to offer something, as others have done. Really the generosity of so many has left me so inspired I couldn't wait a minute longer to make my contribution!

The first of two items is a torso tag design that I enjoy making, especially at this time of a year. It is my favorite bookmark to give away, although things can get a bit out-of-hand with the trinkets that I attach, alas, I do bling very well!







The next item is a Gothic Arch....an interesting mixed media art template that I discovered at the beginning of this year.





Yes, the winner will receive both.......mailed anywhere in the world!

I will also include some 'Moo' cards, see some examples below, also please sign my 'moo' guest book if you have one of my cards already:
