Looks good enough to eat!

I am really impressed with how my GINGERBREAD photo frame turned out. I just know Kathy will love it. She had given me ideas on a photo she had to put into this frame. I painted it a dark chocolate brown to start with...added cuts from a MS deep edge punch for the shingles and then pop-dotted the edge of it out to give the illusion of a ROOF. Added gems for lil' candies on the house. The photo place is the actual WINDOW for the house.  I soo love this!!!!

Altered Christmas Dominos

These are such a joy to make. I love them!!! I used my Tim Holtz alcohol inks in denim and aqua and pearl additive to give the color these have. I then heat set them with my heat gun. Used winter themed stamps I have  along with staz-on black ink and stamped them. Heat set it too....just for luck!  Add a magnetic strip to the back and Voila!!!! you are done. I hope all enjoy them in the CMB Swap.

WInter mini

THIs is the first mini of the sorts I've made....but soo easy and cute!!! Loved it. I found it here .  She does amazing her  site. Check it out and enjoy. 

The mini I did is a Winter Wonderland theme. It's for a CMB swap. I love how lil' they are and how fast they are to make.

I was given some SU wooden stamp blocks with the stamps removed. I had a clever idea to make a **Family** block set for a swap. I hope she enjoys them. I Chose a variety of heights and widths to give interest...and then decided to do a color scheme she liked. I used my Cricut and Don Juan cart to cut the letters. The paper is from M's. I mod podged the paper to the block...sanded the edges and then added the letters. Topped it w/more mod podge and let dry. Finished them off with silver pearls.  What fun project!!!

Happy Birthday, Kahlua!

Today, my beloved furbaby would have been 13 yrs old. Not a day goes by I do not think of her. She is deeply missed with each passing day. RIP my baby....I will see you at Rainbow Bridge.  Mommy just wanted you to know I was thinking of you.

Winter Pin Cushion

I've recently been in a WINTER themed pin cushion swap. Liz was my partner and this is what I did for her. She wanted a teacup this is soo pretty. I found the cup and saucer at Goodwill for next to nothing...and added my *touches* to it. I think it's soo well done...LIz this is for you...enjoy!

The patterned material for the cover was a cream ...I used Peppermint stick glimmer mist to give the red color I needed. The NOW English Ivy crocheted ribbon was also glimmer misted from cream to get this color. I JUST LOVE THAT STUFF~~~~ I added a small Christmas tree button...some buttons..a few snowflakes...and some mini wooden spools for that special touch. I then added sparkle glitter to look like snow on it.  I also used a small tab punch for the  sign and stamped the word **WISH** and put it on a Tim HOltz memo pin
