A few weeks ago I was watching a video on youtube by Jonnie(Tabasco14) showing a gift that she had received from Lisa (Maggie2005cupcake) and it was of a beautiful altered hard hat. I made a comment that I needed to make myself one for those that know me I'm for ever walking into something and leaving welts and bruises on my head. She was so generous and offered to make it for me. OMW!!!!! It's beautiful. I got it in the mail today and I can't tell you how gorgeous it it. Pictures or video do NOT show how gorgeous it is. All I can say is thank you Lisa for your generosity and amazing talent that you have shared with me. I have also put a video up so go take a look and go visit Lisa's channel and leave her some love and tell her I sent you. Have a great day. Hugs Donalda

I love to color Sherri Baldy Digi Stamps. She has so many to choose from and it's hard to pick just one. This one I did in pink, white and black. And of course can't for get the bling for that's what it's all about. LOL!!!! I colored her with copic markers (still learning). The card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and I used Stampin Up cardstock. The lace is from my stash that I have picked up at yard sales and different Antique Malls around here. The bling is from Michael's. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and take a look. Comments are welcome for I read each and everyone. Have a great day.

I made this a while ago but never put it on here . I altered a jam jar I used lace that I had gotten here at a local Antique Market in Centerville. Every time we go there I buy all the lace she has. Usually it's like .25 to .50 a bundle. The most I have ever spent was 2.00 on a 5 yard bundle. I dyed my roses with Tiffany blue from Lindy's Stamp Gang and a pearl spray that I made myself from dollar store eye shadow. I used bling and other embellishments that I had in my stash. The picture of the little girl is from a free site but I can't remember which one for sure but I think it was Magic Moonlight. She has some of the most beautiful Vintage photos. This was a quick and enjoyable project. Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment for I love to read them. Have a wonderful day,

Well I tried my hand at making a journal for my DH for our Anniversary and I finally finished it . Late but it's the thought that counts. Right!!!! He likes to journal and make dream books so I thought that I would make him one. I had picked up several Zutter binders at Tuesday Mornings and so that became my base. I cut my papers, distressed them then teas died them. I then stamped some of them with things that I know that he likes and some sayings that he likes. I covered pieces of cor-gated board with cloth scapbook paper that I got at Michael's. The door plate is from 7 Gypsies and the bookplate is Tim Holtz. The Charm is made up of things that he likes also such as Keys to unlock the future and a lighthouse to show him the way and a ships helm to help guide him to a safe harbor and so on. Thank you for taking the time to look at my creation and I would appreciated any and all comments. Have a great day Hugs Donalda
