We Fish You A Happy Anniversary

Well, it’s been a while since I mentioned that I had at least one more puny anniversary card to post.  Now that I’ve finally finished it, I hope you will enjoy it.  I think the little brads really add to the card.

This is an image by Digi Doodle Shop, isn’t it cute?  I know the male of the species is supposed to be better looking (LOL), but I think this lady is much prettier.  How do you suppose she keeps her eye shadow on? :-)

I used Basic Grey paper on the inside and the punches are by MS.

Another Framed Project

Hi, I know I said I’d be back soon, but it’s just been one of those weeks.  No get-up-and-go. Sad smile  I hope you will enjoy seeing my 2nd of five pieces of framed artwork that I’ve created.  These are my Pay-It-Forward projects, which I know didn’t have to be so entailed, but I really wanted to do this for my friends.

This friend loves pink, animals flowers, bows, gems and butterflies.

I know she likes lambs, and I thought this one from K and K was so cute (unfortunately I’m unable to find the website any longer.)

The die cuts I’ve used are by Cheery Lynn Designs. They are my favorite, and if I had the means, I’d buy more and more of them.  My wish list is humongous, especially since they’ve come out with even more new ones.

The papers are by DCWV and are scraps from other projects.  The ribbon for the flower is from Bunny Zoe’s (made with Bow-Easy) and the flowers and gems are from Recollections. The punch is by MS

A Blog Hop For Dorcas

Hello, this is a blog hop that friends of Dorcas have joined in on to let her know we care for her and want to comfort her in the loss of one of her fur-babies.  It is so easy to become attached to our furry friends. So we wanted to let her know we care. I did this wall hanging for her.

Dorcas, as you now know, Stacey was the instigator of this idea; isn’t it wonderful to have such thoughtful friends?  If you’ve come from Dionne’s blog, you’re on the right track.  Please check out the lovely projects we have all created for our friend, and hopefully you’ll leave a comment.  If you get lost along the way or have started in the middle, you can go to Stacey’s blog and start from the beginning.

Anyone that knows Dorcas, also knows how much she loves ducks.  So I thought I’d do something to hopefully make her smile.  (This is also my “Pay It Forward” gift to her.  It only took me a little over a year to get it out, but that’s me. LOL)  Now you know why I've been not been posting lately.

I hope the colors show up correctly; as it’s difficult to get it right sometimes. The colors on the image by Prairie Fairies, ‘Singin in the Rain’ are prettier in person.

 I’ve used die cuts by Cheery Lynn Designs, and then distressed with Tim Holtz inks.  Knowing how much Dorcas loves buttons, I thought these would make some lovely flowers. I used my Bow-Easy to make my bow from ribbon I love.  I did go easy on the bling, though, but a girl’s got to have some. (LOL) The Bible Scripture is one of her favorites, too, typed on my computer.

Next, please hop on over to Tracy’s blog and see her beautiful design.

P.S.  The other on my 'Pay It Forward' list will be receiving something in the mail as soon as I can get them out. (You know who you are. LOL)  I’ll post them soon, so just in case your mail runs extremely slow, you’ll know what’s coming.
