Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Fairies, Snowman, Hearts and a Butterfly

One of two new Buttons available
at Flutter By

Open Theme
Big things are happening there
on Jan 6th to celebrate the move
to a new address.
I'll be there.

Image Provided
Actually, 2 are provided use
one or both.


I colored this image using my pastel chalks. I just love the look but
it isn't the easiest to do especially if you are coloring with a Q-tip.
I need some of those neat little sponges on a stick.
The two panels have been distressed with scissors.
The trim piece and roses have just the right colors to go with the
coordinating papers.

Winter Dazzling Diamonds for Snow
Let It Snow

Here is my entry. My snowman came from Google images.
My pretty snowflake came in a recent Christmas card and I
don't know where I picked up the white net. The stars are silver
not black which is how they show up here. Everything has
a bit of diamond glitter added.

This is a challenge site that I just found. I like
to support as many challenges as I can. I know what it is like
to have a challenge and have no one come.

I like how this one turned out. It was pretty quick, too. A scrap
of printed paper, heart stickers and fiber wrapped
around the top.
This pretty paper just came in a scrap exchange packet.
I couldn't resist this pretty pattern. I took this
and a couple of others and replaced them with something
from my scrap stash and will be sending it on.
It will be going to Malaysia, its final stop.

Are you making a New Year's resolution? I don't usually but
I am this year. It should be "I resolve to lose 15 pounds" but it
isn't. My resolution is to catalog all of my new unmounted stamps.
I have so many and they are so unorganized I can't find what I want. Then
maybe I will be stamping more often. I also like to flip
through the pages of my catalog and just look at them.
It's like one big collage.

I love your cards, and I have to say that I prefer Q-tips (what we call cotton buds, here in Scotland) than the sponges that come with the effect you have got....many thanks for joining us at Tuesday Taggers this week, and hope that you are looking forward to a fab New Year. Hugs Avril xxx

Jeanette, those cards are fabulous. Love the butterflies. Also, the pastel piece is beautifully colored. Maybe sponge tips would be easier than cotton. I don't have any myself. Pastels give such a soft look to a piece. This is beautiful.
