Hello peeps, just me popping in to share what I made for my swap partner over at Scraps of Color. Princess Jones (Paper Craftingparadise) hosted a Random Acts of Kindness swap where we were paired off and had to make a hand made gift along with some other goodies to send our partner. I was paired with Shirley Milsapp (Crafty Gardens) who stated she liked the colors black, blues and gold. I opted to make her something she could hang in her craft room. I started with a wood frame from the 99 cent store and painted it black. Then I chose an image from the Prima Princess coloring book which had dreads since Shirley wears her hair in a similar style. Finished it of with her initial, flowers. bling and some gold leaves. I really enjoyed making this for her as she is such a caring and giving person. She loved it and I hope you will too. Peace

Good morning friends. Gonna be a beautiful day here in Tucson, AZ. Of course most days are as we have seen very little winter. Just want to share a few cards I created for a lady that lives in the Netherlands. We met online through Scraps of Color and Facebook. She had contacted me on FB about 9 or 10 months ago. She stated she was a fan of my work (blushing). We spoke on the phone as if we were long lost friends. So glad we met, as she is a wonderful person. She is a card maker herself, but said she had lost her mojo. I was happy to help out with several cards she wanted. I also made some Valentine frame cards for my nieces. Thank you for stopping by.

Hey there friends. Monday we will be celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.so I have created a card in his honor to enter into a challenge over at Scraps of color. The challenge was to create something depicting Peace. I chose an image of Dr King since he lived his life for Peace and injustice. Enjoy the day off but remember why it is celebrated. PEACE

Hello and welcome to 2018. This year I decided to stay in with my sister and craft. Did not think I would miss anything if I did not go out since I don't do it on a regular anyway. We decided to use a new die that I had got at the Bluemoon closing sale. It is a picture frame that you can embellish however you choose. We also had a little spread of food to eat and some Martini and Rossi Spumante to bring in the new year. I hope that you all did something fun or that you love to bring in your New Year also.

Hello and welcome back. Just wanted to share a couple of things with you. Today we had our annual Wine and Dine Holiday crop. The theme was Old Hollywood. Myself and my sister created all the decorations and goodie bags. We also had to create a card to share and a gift exchange of an Old Hollywood door hanger.. We had so much fun doing this even though it was time consuming. Hope you enjoy what we did and I hope it sparks some creativity to some. Till next time ---Peace

Hello people. Back again with my Breast Cancer share. Every year I try to complete projects, cards or tags for survivors or those going through it now. This year I completed seven projects that should have arrived or be arriving this weekend. Wish I could have done more, but my time is limited at the moment. October is almost over, but it is not too late to lift someone up and also go get your girls checked if you have not already done so.. Peace

Hello everybody, hope your October is going well. Don't forget that it is Breast Cancer month. Brighten someones day that is a survivor or going thru it now. Do yourself a favor and get checked if you have not already. We have Halloween that I really enjoy this month also. Need to send out a few cards. Well, anyway, I came here to post the challenge we were having over at Scraps of Color. It was a Prima Doll Tag swap that had to be of Sisterhood/Friendship. I had a fun time making mine and actually wanted to keep it. I chose to use 2 dolls to show friendship. Hope my swap partner likes it as much as I did. Have a blessed Sunday.
