Dreams Have Wings

A beautiful Hyacinth Macaw in flight.

Their wingspan measures up to three
feet wide....what an amazing beauty.
Some of his feathers are attached to the
card but unfortunately my scanner cannot
pick up the blue iridescense.

I like to recycle store bought greeting
cards that people send me.
Here I used a cat that I received.
I cut it out and added a crown.
I mean every princess needs a crown,
just ask Kate if you don´t believe me.
A few crowns were
stamped on the white card and a few paw
prints around this lilac persian. I topped it
off with some vellum, jewel studded brads
and fibers.

Want to see another princess?

This is my entry for Created By Hand.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Flower Garden II

Joy II

Another in the set of Flower Garden cards.

The button was sewn onto the card by knotting
the metallic thread in front of the button which
gives it a fluffy, flowering look made out of
the thin thread. If you missed the first in this
garden series you can see it here.

You may also remember the flower I made out
of gold thread on this tag.

We have finally gotten some decent rain so
my flower garden is thriving. Maybe you are
out working in your garden on this beautiful

This is my entry for Theme Thursday.

Flower Garden I


I have been working on a series of flower garden
cards using watercolors and stamps.
A white satin vine was added as well as
three tiny punched squares.
I think I have been inspired by all the
wonderful flowers in my own garden.
How does your garden grow?

How Kind

Random Act of Kindness

Lynne from Scotland sent me this wonderful
card along with some special papers for making
transfers onto fabric. Out of the goodness of
her heart....wasn´t that nice of her. Want to see
more of her work? She is the queen of romance.
Her art will transport you to another era in time.

Can you ever get enough chocolate?
This is a chocolate tag which I sent to
Anneke back in January.

She sent me this tag back in December and
since she loves the color green and comes
from the land of fine chocolate....I knew she
would appreciate such a tag.

You may also remember another
chocolate tag of mine.

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday.
