Post Valentines Floundering.....
(tee hee)

Hi Everyone, it's been a little
while since you've heard from 
me, and here's hoping you all
had a Lovely Valentines Day!

I've been so busy with not
just every day stuff, but 
also diving back into some
unfinished projects all in
preparation for the coming
Season of Workshops
that I'm hoping to be taking.

Artful Gatherings

is one of the Groups
that I can't wait to get
into the classes with!

They have a Fabulous Line Up
of Teachers this 2013 Year
with a Wonderful Variety
of Workshops to chose from!

Registration is Open!!!
So get on over there and check out
all the Fabulous Artist Teachers 
 and their

But in the meantime,
Another Project I'm trying to get
finished up at the moment is 
a Wonderful Playing Card 
Inspiration Swap at

In Search of Dessert
Jessica Brogan
is Hosting this Wonderful
Altered Playing Card Swap
and the Deadline has been
extended to March 29th,
so you do still have time to
stop by her blog (link attached)
to Enter! 
Keep in mind, that's 52 Playing Cards
to alter and get mailed so get going! 

Here's the beginning of the cards
I've made

I got a little carried away, as these
are just the backgrounds! LOL!
I tore out pages from a soft
covered Moleskin Journal,
( believe me I thought long and
hard about doing it! GRIN)

Then using Dyan Reaveley's 
Fabulous Dylusions Ink Sprays

I sprayed the pages with a variety
of the wonderful colours Dyan has.

( And she's just released more
Fabulous Colours!!!)

From that point when the pages were
dry, I used one of my Favourite 
Stencils, and Mr. Tim's

Distress Stains
(All the new Fabulous Colours
from his Seasonal Series!)
Which I am so grateful to have
them all Thanks to a Wonderful
Girlie who treated me for
my Birthday and Christmas!

Next I glued, and trimmed the
Moleskin pages to the Playing Cards.

Now that I have the 52 Playing Cards
Backs and Fronts done...I'll be
scrambling to get them done and
mailed! LOL!!

And then there are also all the 
Dollie's I've been making recently,
and only 1 left in my Etsy Shop!
I've been so honoured to have
sold them all and I'm loving 
that each Dollie's New Owner
are sending pictures of them 
hanging in their New Homes
Globally!! What Fun!!!!

And of course there's always
time to grab 
for a bit of journaling....

Oh man! Have I had fun with this
Journaling spread!

Using this Lovely Little Girl 
as my Muse from the Wonderful

And these Fabulous Lazier Cut-Out
Butterflies from the Wonderful

And adding tons of Glitter
and Colour and pen work and
moulding paste and stencils...


So now you've seen just a few
reasons of why I've been 
late getting a Blog Post up
and running.....I think
they're pretty good excuses! HA!!!!

(and see you soon:)
