It's time for BLOG CANDY!!

When I posted about my blog award I realized it was my 100th post. I started this blog about 10 months ago and what a journey it's been. I love blogging, I love the people I've met, the comments I get, the way it motivates me to craft more than I normally would. So how about a little giveaway. I love lace and hopefully you do too, I have a yard of each, 14 different laces. I'm also including a few of my crocheted flowers.

If you'd like to win, you must be a follower of my blog and leave a comment. If you'd like to post on your blog about my candy, let me know and I'll give you another entry. I'll draw a winner a week from today. Oct.3rd, I'll close the drawing at midnight on the 2nd of Oct. Thanks for celebrating 100 posts with me. Shari

Wow two posts in one week!

I must be sick. Ha! I made a few cards in the last couple of days and thought I'd share them. The first cards I made are for an anniversary party for my dear cousin and her husband. They are celebrating their 50th on Sunday. I always make double to use on another occasion. I cut the 50's on my cricut, used some old lace and the cakes are Jolee's boutique dimensional stickers I got on clearance. The little flowers are prima, I also got on clearance.

The next cards I made were for my two nieces who just had baby boys. I used flower soft for the first time on these tiny little flowers. You can click on the pic. to see the flowers better. I stamped the buggy and colored it with prisma color pencils, then added glossy accents to the buggy and wheels. The baby bottle is a dimensional sticker from Jolee's boutique. I added the ribbon and pearl brads. I also made 2 but only took pics. of 1. What do you think?

I did some crafting!!!!!!

Wow, It's about time don't you think? Lately I've been in a funk and have no ambition to make anything. And when I do what to make something, life seems to get in the way.

Well last night I attended a U-Stream live with Laura Denison. Check out her blog : following the paper trail .
(I just love her projects, she has so much talent.)
So today I decided to give the wreath she was making a try. The sun flower pieces were all cut by hand, pleated and inked, the flowers were cut with the Tim Holtz die, tattered florals. The leaves were all cut on my cricut and also inked. I think it will look cute hanging on my front door, what do you think? You know I love your comments!

My take on the craft spinner

Ok, I admit it, I haven't been very creative. I hoped I would have got alot done this week but once again life gets in the way. I did get a chance to try the masking technique that Jennifer McGuire had a
video on. I stamped the dress maker image and used glossy
accents, let dry. Then I inked the tag. Pretty cute huh?

Since I haven't been very creative I thought I would share MY version of the Inksentials craft spinner, shown here.

I found a rack at a store going out of business and this is my version. I drilled holes in my ink blender tools and ran a piece of leather thru them. I hung clips to hold my

daubers on and labeled each color. Now I have a blending tool and dauber for my most frequently used colors, and I don't have to switch pads. I love it, it's very handy.
