So excited to share...

 Hello my friends, I am so excited for you all to see the project that I just completed. OMG, OMG, It turned out so darn cute. The only thing that I wanted to do on it but couldn't was use Distress lace stickles on some of the flowers, For the life of me, I cannot find my little bottle of the   Distress stickles. I mean I have like every color under the sun and that is the one I cannot find, doesn't it figure? LOL! So, This lunchbox type container, I got for $1.00 at the flea Market and it is exactly what I needed. I am in a swap on Swap Bot called "Think outside the JAR Whimsey swap" So basically we are to decorate and fill a container(anything except for a "JAR") with goodies! I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the "Lunch Box" but I already wrapped everything in tissue and put it inside the box. I cant tell you what is in it cause my partner might see and I want it to be a surprise. So, just looking at the picture, do you think she is going to like it?  I am mailing it off on Monday so she will have it by Wednesday, I will let you all know what she thinks!!   SO, I am off to get it all packaged up to ship out so I will see you all again real soon!!!  Nighty Nights!!!

ATC_World 6 For 6


 Happy Friday Friends, I am just finishing up a 6 for 6 ATC swap that I am in. ATC's are all the rage right now. I Love Love Love ATC's, collecting, creating, swapping, etc. So, this swap is for the Yahoo group ATC_World They have some pretty fun swaps in that group. This swap is "Use those scraps" and it is a 6 for 6 swap. We all have those scraps that we just cant throw away, You know what I'm talking about, right? Well, All 6 of my creations are from not only Card stock scraps but designer papers as well. It took me a little while to get the Mojo rolling but I completed all 6 and now it's time to mail them off to the Hostess on Monday!! I cant wait to see what I get in return.  
So, I am off to work on some more swaps so I will share some more with you real soon!! Have a wonderful weekend and drop me a line if you wanna swap either ATC's, 6X6  scrap book pages, Hat pins, Altered cigar box's, Etc.   Big Hugs!!!
Isn't this so cheerful?


This is my fave!!

I used a Gelly Roll "Clear star" pen on the flowers.

Happy Saturday night everyone. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We are here in Sunny Northern Cali. We hit 90° today so we had the air on all day long and tomorrow is going to be a pretty warm one as well. Sunday is my favorite day of the week. Craig and I hit the flea market. He actually goes at 6am. and then comes home and gets me at about 8:30( i like to sleep in a little!) Hopefully I will score some good finds tomorrow. I will share so wish me luck!
So, onto my creations. I have been making alot of ATC's(artist trading cards) lately and I have also been in alot of swaps over at Swap Bot.
