Two New Cards

Today I made two cards using Flower Soft Stamps Called Moments in time.  I stamped them both with Memento black ink on water color paper.  I then use Tim Holtz Distress Makers and colored them.  Then I added the flower soft.  Then I assembled the cards.  The base cards are from Micheal's and the paper is some scraps that I have had in stash for a very long time.  I do believe that the pink and cream paper is DCWV but not positive.  The Rickrack and lace are from my stash also.  The ribbon in the inside of the card  I got from Seema Khan in a give away.  The WOC flowers are also from a giveaway that I won on Srapbooking with ME on Facebook.  Thank you for taking the time to look at my new creations and please feel free to comment.  Hugs Donalda

Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging a while back but did not share it here.  I had a lot of fun making this and it was a little out of my comfort zone.  I took a piece of felt and covered it with lace from my stash used several vintage laces that I have gathered over the last year or so.  I made all the large flowers and the tags that are on it.  The hanger is a pants hanger that I covered in lace.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look and please feel free to leave a comment,  Hugs, Donalda

First Time Using Tim Holtz Distress Markers

So today I decided to get busy an make a card I had bought a few of Tim Holtz Distress Markers so I thought that I would take them out for a spin..  I didn't have any watercolor paper on hand so I thought that I would just use 110# cardstiock by Georgia Pacific.  Well it has issues but none that I couldn't live with.  I had this cute digital image by Sheri Baldy and printed it out and I started playing and this is the results.  I did make mistakes but like I said I can live with them.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts which I won on a facebook group call Scrapbooking with ME.  Everything else is things that I have in my stash.  Thanks for stopping by and taking  look.  Please leave a comment as I do read and appreciate them.  Hugs, Donalda

Handmade Flowers

Been making flowers got inspired by Diana (sparemarbles2012) on utube for her Fluffy Puffy Shabby Flower tutorial and thought that I would share them here as well.  Love making flowers don't know what I will do with all of them but I really do enjoy making them.  I have a hard time cutting into some of my material and lace because it's so pretty and when I use it up I may not be able to replace it but OMW I need to do something with it or it will just set here and rot.  And I sure can't take it with me and my kids sure won't want it so I guess I had better make flowers.   Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  Please leave a comment for I do read them and will try my very best to respond.  Hugs Donalda

Look What I Got!!!

Last night we went to Walmart to get somethings for me to make Banana Nut Bread and as we were walking towards the back we passed the fresh flowers.  I said to my DH Oh aren't they pretty and I kept walking to get the things that I needed.  My DH isn't keeping up with me and then about 5 minuets later here he comes and puts these beautiful flowers in our basket.  I said what are these for and DH  smiled and said just because I love you......  I think he's a keeper don't you....  Hope you are having a good day.
