Think Spring!

We've got a Challenge going on over at Outlawz, and we would like you to join us at Festive Fridays!   Hope to see you there!

Little Flower Girl has a tote full of flowers, and this one was made especially for a friend.
I used my Blender Markers by Spectrum Noir

Happy Dance

I feel a happy dance comin' on... Christmas is just around the corner!  

This is my first time to design for Festive Fridays at the Outlawz!

Where there is a Challenge going on...

So c'mon over and join in the fun! 

This Dancing Penguin is just too cute... this Image can be found at: Fred She Said 

Here is my card

And to show the bling & sparkle

Here's how I made this card: 
The snowflake design was made by using a Diamond Snowflakes Stencil by Altenew and a Gelli Plate to get the desired effect.
The bling is from Hobby Lobby, as is the card stock.
Distress Oxide in Stormy Sky and Salty Ocean is the ink for the background.   I really like how it turned out.  :)
The image was colored in using Prismacolor Pencils.
And glitter for the "ice" is from a glitter pen found at Close To My Heart.
Stickles in Frosted Lace was used to create the snowflake dots.

Thanks for coming by, while you're here leave a comment too!

Happy Crafting,

Sweet lil' Vintage

 Greetings!      I haven't been crafting very much lately, just couldn't seem to find any inspiration.   Well,  we've been getting tons of those junk flyers in the mail lately, due to the upcoming election.   And as much as I wanted to tear them up and just toss away... another thought came to me, why not use them for a project.   My creative juices started to flow.    Here's what I made...

I started out with a 10 x 5 inch junk mail flyer, and added pieces of vintage papers to collage.  Brushed on mod podge to seal the papers together, went around the edges with distress oxide, in vintage photo.  Added in some lace here and there, and beads across the bottom.   This really makes a cute wall hanging for my craft room.  Almost forgot to mention, this is: 6 x 5 inches.   I call this my Sweet lil' Vintage project.  

I wouldn't be a bit surprised, if most of my followers have moved on to greener pastures,  but, I am going to try my best to keep this blog updated.  Believe it or not.   :)  

If you have come by to see what's up...  let me know by leaving a comment.   It would really make my day.  

Happy Autumn, happy crafting!
