Pretty Rosette Embellies!

I just love how these rosettes look.  The other night I decided to pull out my Tim Holtz rosette die and make some pretty embellishments to have on hand and I just love the way they look.  They are so glittery and so very shabby!  I used the kid's creatology glitter that you can purchase at Michael's.  It's a large jar that cost about $5, but can be purchased for less with a coupon.  Some of the rosettes are just the bottom layer, but I like it best with the large rosette topped off with the smaller one.  I used some flowers from my stash along with a little seam binding on some.  Don't you just love how sparkly they are. Leave a comment for a chance to win some of these beautiful rosettes.  Winner will be announced on Saturday.

Farm Fresh Friday Sketch Challenge

Here is my entry for this week's Farm Fresh Friday Sketch Challenge.  A couple of weeks ago, I won the Garden Variety Tuesday random giveaway and received this gorgeous digi: Cheeky Fairy.  I think this my new favorite.  I decided to finally use her for this week's challenge and I think she looks perfect on this card.  Thanks so much for stopping by and leave a comment if you wish.

All Dressed Up for Halloween!!

For this card I used my Holiday Anya 2 and dressed her for Halloween.  I used my very hoarded October Afternoon Witch Hazel paper collection and added some seam binding and fibers, flowers that I dyed with my Lindy's sprays and added a banner to make it spooktacular.  I love it!!!!  This card has been submitted in the Garden Variety Tuesday challenge on the Greeting Farm blog.  Go over for more inpiration. Thanks for stopping by.

Anything BUT a card challenge!!

For this week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge it is anything but a card.  I decided to create one of the treat pockets that is the craze right now using a Recollections envelope.  What a clever idea that was developed by Yolonda on YT.  I made this very shabby adorable treat pocket using Flutter Anya for a friend.  My plan is to add some rosette trim so that she can make some of the fluffy flowers.  This pocket is such a great idea that I  am looking forward to making more.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I am really glad that you are here.

All Ready for Halloween!!!

Holiday Anya 2 all ready and dressed for Halloween!  I love the way she looks on this card.  I decided to dress her for Halloween instead of Christmas.  I added a witch hat from the October Afternoon Witch Hazel collection and used an embossing folder in the background, which you can't see too much.   I also used some Dylusion's to color the flowers orange.  I love how bright they are.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

"Gorjuss" girl criss cross card

This week Laura and I challenged each other to make a fancy criss cross card using a colored image and items that we received in our DT packages (Laura is on the DT for WOC).  So this is what I came up with using some of the items that Julie sent me this month from Craft Supplies1.  I love how fancy and shabby it looks and I hope Laura likes it too.

"Head Start on the Holidays"

This week for the Greeting Farm blog Garden Variety challenge, the theme is "Head Start on the Holidays".  The challenge is to make a Christmas card using a Greeting Farm image.  I decided to use my new Holiday Anya 2 stamp for this one.  I also used Teresa Collins Santa's List paper collection and I just love the way this card looks.  This is my first Christmas card for the season.  I even had Christmas music playing as I was crafting.  Now it's time to get some sleep.  I hope you like my card and your comments are welcomed.

Gorjuss Shabby Pincushion

Wow!  I had a jammed packed weekend and I am feeling the effects of it this morning.  I went to a late night crop on Friday and had loads of fun, but managed to finish my DT projcet for Craft Supplies1.  I really love my new Gorjuss Shabby pincusion chair.  The chair was a plant stand that I decided to alter.  I used several of the items that I received in my DT package from Julie and enlarged the image by 50% so that she fit better on the chair.    She looks so beautiful sitting in my cabinet on display.
