It's Been A While!

Wow!! It sure has been a long time since I've posted!!! I guess time really does fly when your having fun ;)

The Christmas Season has kept me fairly busy.
I did do a couple things for friends for the holiday. I had done a one for one YEARS ago for one friend for the other. They both asked for another to give to other friends. 
Here is what I had done! The Desiderata Poem
The red and grey one is done in just a regular 8x10 picture frame. The grey and black one is in a 8x10 shadow box frame. 
They are both very pretty and I am pleased with how they turned out


The last one and my favourite so far!! I just love this poem and can't wait to do more!
These will be a hit for the upcoming craft sales. I just hope I can manage to get a few done in time :)

More Desiderata Poems

I never would have thought that decorating a poem in a frame would have
been so popular, but it really is a beautiful poem.
I did a third one for a friend to give as a gift. Another friend saw the one I had done and wanted one for herself, and I did one as a gift yesterday. 
I really like the way they turned out! I hope everyone that receives them is as pleased :-)
I think with the 3 I did yesterday it makes 7 that I have done so far. I still really would like one for myself. I guess I will have to make another trip to Michael's for more frames.
I prefer to use the Shadow Box frames but you can use regular frames. The Shadow Box frames make it so much easier as you have much more room to make it 3D looking.

This was the last one done for the evening yesterday


This was the first one I tackled yesterday morning and was delivered yesterday afternoon

 This was the second one. It didn't have butterflies at first but it need something else, so when I finished the other blue one, I added the left over butterflies. I am really pleased with it now.

I've Been Slackin in 2015

I want to apologize to anyone who is following my blog....
I can't believe I have been so slack this year! I haven't posted since December!
Here are the cards that we have done in the group up to April.
I have to admit again though just how much I love Pinterest as a lot of my cards are CASed from there. Everyone has such great imaginations and I just can't get mine to work most of the time! 

 These were the 2 we did for April. Again, simple but very pretty!


 These 2 were the ones we did in February. I cased them from Pinterest


 Everyone in my little group got the Watercolor Winter Kit at the end of the year in 2014 and that is what we started the year this year with. A good start to the cards for 2015 with the kit having 20 cards alone. Everyone should have lots by the end of the year ;)


 These ones were the ones for March. We went fairly simple this month :)
