Thank you's and catching up

Oh my gosh I have some catching up to do. So this is a Hodge podge of a post.
First off some Thank yous for some wonderful gifts from OWOH.

I was in shock when I opened my gift or should I say gifts from Viola.
The texture and colors on this canvas is unbelievable!!!
I knew this gorgeous canvas was on its way but...

So much more came. This cabinet type card. Oh my gosh.
 I don't know how she does it.
The layers look like velvet. I've been touching them all and trying to figure out how it was done!

Then this darling tag. Its like she painted over a piece of acetate.
 I know the pictures don't do these justice at all. Are you drooling yet????

and this darling soldered charm. Even her packaging is magnificent. I have been a long time admirer of Viola and I count myself very Lucky to now own some of her original pieces.

Next came this darling Fortune Teller ATC from Laura at Artfully Musing.
Laura is an extremely talented artist as well. Her blog is filled with tutorials, gorgeous art and monthly giveaways. Be sure and check out both these blogs.
I promise you will leave inspired by these two very talented artists.

Another Thank You to Bear Crazy Man at My Thoughts My Life 
for this lovely award.

A very talented Guy who is a Tim fan as well. Go check out his amazing work too!
I had already received this award so I won't bore you with the details about me again. LOL

Next. I had a lovely surprise in my e-mail box when
had seen a tutorial I had done on making spoon pendants at Gingersnap Creations
and decided to Feature my tutorial. It can be seen at either locations.
Thanks Handmade Jewelry Club. Lots of great ideas their if you like to make your own jewelry.

Next a couple of shout outs to
A Collective Journal Where they feature four artists.
Thank you for featuring my Frozen Charlotte Doll in my - Forgotten Childhood Art piece
For featuring my Wall Hanging in their treasury.

I think that about covers it for now.
I have some Big Surprises coming soon. I can't wait to tell you about!!!!
Thank you all so very much!!!
