Pay it Forwad ~ Facebook

So, I participated in this "Pay it Forward" thing on Facebook where you post to your page that you will make a handmade gift (anything) to the first 5 people who comment and repost to there page...  Well, as of date I have received 2 gifts!  They are absolutely adorable.  My first gift was handmade and hand delivered by my friend and neighbor, Leah.  She made me a yummy good bouquet! 

My second gift (received in the mail today) came from my dear Louisiana friend, Paperpiecing Patty!  She made adorable Easter bunny cards.  The picture really does no justice for the actual art of the card.  They have so much detail to them and are simply adorable!  Thanks to both Leah & Patty for your thoughtfulness!  I am so blessed to have such loving and caring friends!!!

Busy Day!

Okay, so today I had a very productive day playing at Archiver's... I completed 3 cards, 1 tag, and 1 ATC! For my first card, I used Hunter Green, Yellow, and Red Cardstock. Gecko Galz Emphemera - True Romance Collection, and Gold Ribbon.
For the second card, I used Pink Cardstock, K & Company Stickers, Gecko Galz Emphemera - True Romance Collection, Gecko Galz Fripperies - Heart String Fibers, and ColorBox Chalk - Chestnut to ink around the edges.
For the 3rd card, I used Black & Red Cardstock, Black Fabric Mesh (that I bought at Scrapfest last year), Heart Charm, StazOn Opaque - Cotton White, Gecko Galz Emphemera - True Romance Collection, Gecko Galz Alphabet Soup - Love Letters, Gecko Galz Clear Stamps - Garden Mandela Set
For the tag, I used Yellow Carstock, White Sparkle Tulle, Cream Ribbon, & Lace, K & Company Metal Art, Flower Soft - Spring, and Gecko Galz Emphemera - True Romance Collection.
For the ATC, I used Green Cardstock, Gecko Galz Fripperies - Red Tulle, Gecko Galz Fripperies - (Silver) Ultra Thick Embossing Powder, Gecko Galz Emphemera - True Romance Collection, and Metal Heart Brad (whick I shanked the brad off and attached to tulle).
I had so much fun creating the cards, tag, and ATC. And of course it was an added benefit being able to spend the day in good company with awesome friends! I hope you enjoyed viewing my creations and that they inspire you to be creative...

Off to a GREAT start in 2011!

Okay, so I just joined this AWSOME website called Bella Creations where there are so many talented ladies with fantastic ideas! I completed my first challenge in the group which was a tag. We were given an image and had to create a Valentine tag. This is what I came up with... I used Tim Holtz paper stash - vintage shabby pink. I popped up my image because I love popping up things. lol Also used some K & Company stickers along with some ribbon for the bottom and a clip (which I added a pretty flower embellishment). Along with a pink butterfly and green & pink ribbon and a little pink tulle. I am so excited about being a part of this website along with being a new design team member with Gecko Galz! You can check out both websites by clicking on the pictures to the right. Also, if you are interested in joining Bella Creations they are taking a few more members. Check it out, you won't be disappointed... Gecko Galz has lots of awesome products for sale and has some really neat ideas too. So, check that one out too!
