I'm Doing the Happy Dance

When a Dear blog friend told me I should try out for the DT at 
I never expected to hear I made the Team!
But that's just what happened and I couldn't be happier!!!
Not only did I make the team
 but my good friend Kimberly Laws made the team too.
Aren't these just the prettiest things ever?  Swoon!!!!
You must stop by and see all their Gorgeous wares.
I can't wait to hear about our first assignment!

Mask Challenge 
I'm also doing the Happy Dance as I received my comp
copy of the new Stampers Sampler.
They published a card I submitted for the Mask Challenge
using The Venezia images from Oxford Impressions

I'm heading out of town for work and I won't have access
to a computer until I return next weekend.
I'll catch up with you all then.
Have a Great creative week!

A Little of This and That

Honestly I don't know where the time has gone???
I feel  like I stepped back  5 years ago during the building boom.
Works been crazy busy.
But when I'm not working I try and get some creative time in.

Like playing with the new stamps from Oxford Impressions
Jane's Garden
I just Love these new images!!

Night Owl
A mini moon shrine and stars 
complete with the tiniest niche 
I knew my hand cast owl would be the perfect fit!!!

Alice in Wonderland Charms
Somehow I managed to host a charm swap over at 
Truth be told I started this months ago.
Here are the darling charms I received back.
(Top L to R) Darlene Rolls, Wendy Aspinall, Kimberly Laws
(Bottom L to R) Jan Larson, Karla Jackson, 
an extra Thank you charm from Jan Larson and my tea pots.

I have a few tea pots left over. So if anyone would like one just leave a comment
and I'll draw some winners next week.

A few more things that have slipped past me lately.
I was honored to have one of my pieces selected by 
Graphics 45
as their project of the week.
Another Mini Matchbox chest I made using there awesome papers!!!



I was Thrilled when Altered Art magazine asked if they could
use a few of my Domino pieces in their Spring Issue

So that's what I've been up to lately.
 BUT I am shamelessly behind on all my blog visits.....
I'll be over just as soon as I can. 

Hope your all enjoying a wonderful spring...
Or is it summer already???????

Bathing Beauty Spoolie

I played along in a swap at Blissful Art Swaps recently.
Here's what I made for my partner Darlene.
We were to use a wooden spool and the theme was Bathing Beauties.
I decided on a base of a sea shell slice. 
The spool became a pylon wrapped with cord and of course I couldn't forget the gull. LOL 
I made a mold and casting 
 for the sand castle from a pair of salt & Pepper shakers,
then sprinkled on a coating of sand.
The umbrella is from Tim's Rosette die.
 I love coming up with different ideas with this favorite die.
A few mini sea shells and a sun hat and she was ready to hit the beach.
