This is the card I made for our last Stampin' Up card exchange. Unfortunately, Karen (our S.U. Consultant), got sick---so she was unable to make it to our get together. So, instead of canceling we all met at my house anyways and made cards all day! We also went ahead with our card exchange.
This card was made using my Stampin' Up stamp set: Asian Artistry (and I colored it with copic markers for a watercolor effect). I also used my Versamark pad for the background (dragonflies and saying), and of course my Spellbinders dies: S4-202 Deckled Rect. ~ Lg. & S4-168 Large Labels.
So, here are some pictures of (me), and all my goodies from Spellbinders' Pendant Project Conetest. BIG Thank you to all the companies that gave out prizes----Spellbinders, My Mind's Eye, Clear Snap, Core`dinations, Just Rite & 3L Adhesives. I am in heaven!!! :)

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Tonight was my first "Creative Crafts" class at Hobby Lobby. These are the two cards that we made.
The first card uses Spellbinders die #S4-129 Classic Scalloped Squares ~ small; and the second uses #S4-159 Nested Flower.

Next class is Sept. 25 @ 5:30 p.m. in the classroom at Hobby Lobby (in the back by the art department). So if you're in the Grand Junction area come and make cards with me!

So I recently went back to Angelo's (our local paint your own pottery studio), and they had the Margarita glasses in stock. Of course, I HAD to paint one!!! :)
My son, Caden thinks it's funny that I'm a drink and a pizza----"You could be a whole meal!" Yes son, I could!

I also love dragonflys, so I decided to try and draw one on a cup (there's 3 on here actually). This burgundy paint actually has black specks in it, they're a little hard to see in the pic., but they look really neat!

Next time, I want to learn to melt glass! :)

These are 2 projects I made for the Tattered Angels Design Team (tryouts), using glimmer mist of course!

The card was made using: Spellbinders Renaissance Hearts Pendant die, Colorsnaps "smooch" in Pumpkin, Robin's Nest dew drop in Black, Glimmer Mist in Raven, Stampin' Up (saying) and various paper, ribbon & a button I had laying around.

I love the way this photo frame turned out!!! My husband and I attended the Renaissance Faire last year, but I've yet to do anything with the pictures, until now. This is a $1 wooden frame from Michaels that I painted a "wine red" color, then covered in D.C.W.V. "Once Upon a Time" paper. The torn edge paper is sprayed with "haunted shadow" glimmer mist, and the fairies wings are highlighted with clearsnaps "smooch" in gold. I also added some ribbon, brads and charms that I've been "saving for the perfect thing!" The sign at the bottom was made using Spellbinders Label 8 die and a gold marker.
