Hello to Everyone -----

This was such a fun project to do. I don't know why it has taken me so long to do my initial but I finally finished it.  Of course it seems that lately my favorite color is black (with almost anything other color).   I am entering this at Craft Us Crazy.

The initial is from JoAnns.  Paper is from Graphic45 (I don't remember which one).  The clothspen is also from Graphic45.  The flowers, butterflies and keys are from Michaels.  The green fancy swirl is from CherryLynn Designs.  The gold swirl is from Maya Road which I used Gold UTEE on (two coats).  The "soar" is from Tim Holtz that I colored with Distress Inks (faded jeans).  The "inspire" was computer generated also colored with "faded jeans".

Hello again.    Craft Us Crazy is having a new challenge where you use black as the main color or a party theme.  As you can see, I decided to use black.   I have to start restocking my birthday cards and it seems like everyone I know is 29 - again and again.  LOL  Age really is just a number because some days you just feel old and some days you feel so young.

I decided to use paper from Fancy Pants Design called it's the little things.  I just stamped a whole lot of numbers on white cardstock then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (tea dye) to tone down the white.  Scallops are from Nestabilities and the scallop border is from Martha Stewart. 

Thank you for looking and have a great day.

Hello and welcome.  I wanted to share this 8 x 10 canvas with all of you.  This was inspired by Jeri Strickland Moody when she posted this saying on her facebook page.   Once I read this I just knew I had to make this for me. I used different techniques that I have never used and some are old favorites.  The background color is Lumiere paint - Halo Blue Gold.  The embellishments are from Tim Holtz, Walmart letters, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, Cheery Lynn Designs and my stash.

Thank you for looking.
