I LOVE THIS IMAGE

Hi friends, just wanted to stop in and share what I have been playing with lately.  I found this image on Pinterest and can not stop creating with it.  I just find it to be so beautiful and just my style.  I have made an altered key/potholder, two cards and two sticky note pads.  Thanks for looking.

PRIMA DOLL SWAP

Hey folks, back again to share a little something from the Prima Doll with a twist swap over at Scraps of Color.  I had to do two to the same person.  I created an altered journal and a tag.  Since Black Panther is all the rage, I choose to use that as my theme.  I was inspired by all the beautiful women in this movie.  Hope you enjoy my share as much as I did making it.  Peace

NEW AFRICAN AMERICAN STAMPS BY RUBBERNECKER

Good morning and greetings  to all.  Last weekend I rode up to Mesa, AZ to the Rubber Stamp show at the Mesa Convention Center.  It was kinda small and lacking some of the booths we use to see.  However, we ran into lots of friends from Tucson and the Phoenix area which turned out to be very enjoyable.  The Rubbernecker booth was my favorite as he had a  lot of new African American stamps.  I could not wait to play with them.  I used Zari and Nessa to create some quick cards. The two bottom cards are both Nessa. Thanks for stopping in and Happy crafting.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Hello and welcome back to my blog.  Today I want to share a couple of projects that were created to celebrate Black History month..  First is a scrapbook layout I did for a challenge over at Scraps of Color hosted by Princess http://papercraftingparadise.blogspot.com/.  Every year she hosts a Black History Bingo challenge.  I don't scrapbook much, but I wanted to support the challenge.  My second project is an altered wood box that I painted and added art and embellished.  In honor of Black History month, I will be giving this away on Facebook.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to create something yourself today.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS SWAP

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

AN ORDER FROM THE NETHERLANDS

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.
