Great weekend with friends

I just got back from a trip with friends. My friend, Claudia and I went to see our friend. Diane in Raleigh, NC. We had a wonderful time. Our other friend, Diann joined us on Monday and we had a wonderful time creating. Here are some of the things that we did.

This was a 5x7 inch picture that my friend, Diann gave me for the cat lottery that I won this month in our online art group.

Diann also gave me this cute little cat ATC.

I made this tassel
with my friends
Claudia, Diane,
and Diann. This
was a project that
Diane taught us all.

This necklace really did not scan very well but this is another project that Diane taught us. It is a necklace made from a sticker believe it or not that has glossy accents on it and the center is the top of a spoon filled with all sorts of treasures.

I have one more necklace which is the bottom of the spoon but I'll have to find it as I unpack.

Fish pond in the Garden

This is an ATC that I made for our local altered book club. The theme was Gardens for this ATC and it has a background that was sprayed with different colors of distress inks. Then the fish was stenciled on it. It was layered with stamps, guesso, napkins, more ink over the quote and doodles. The quote is by William Shakespear.
I wanted it to look like the view from the pond that the fish sees of the garden.
I hope Linda likes it!

TMTA - Eternity and Every Inchie Monday - Strength

This is my inchie for Every Inchie Monday where the theme is strength. I hope you can tell it is a strong man holding a little baby. I thought that was kind of cute because you are going to need all the strength that you have to raise a little baby!

This is my ATC for Think Monday, Think ATC
Where the theme is Eternity. Since my 41st
Anniversary is this month on the 23rd, I was
thinking about marriage. And no that is not
me and my DH. It is just an image that I had
on one of my graphic programs.

Birthday card for friend's mom

My friend Barbara's mom is having her 97th Birthday and I made her this wild birthday card. She loves Sunflowers. I saw a similar birthday card in an old issue of Stamper's Sampler magazine. The card in the magazine had the added piece where the eyelets are and I wanted to try this technique. I had the wild printed paper that is cut on the diagonal and thought she might enjoy this paper because it is so happy and wild. I hope she enjoys it and has a very happy birthday.
