Never get to sure of yourself when it comes to staying well....as soon as you think ohhh I never get sick...boooooooom it happens. It hit me Saturday...just lovely....lovely aches and pains & oh so more. Don't know what it was but glad it has gone. Now trying to play catch up. I was craving some color........it has been snowing here and I needed a boost. I brought out some blues, sunny yellows, and reds. Easter is not far off..and I hope we don't have snow than but fear we will. That is it for me....I am still sooo fatiqued feeling so need some shut eye. Hope you enjoy! I have not forgotton about tying bows either. hugs, c herry

So glad I will see my dh tonight! Yesterday was his birthday...i won't spill the beans on how old..but felt awful he was alone on his birthday. As far as crafting I have been busy on some custom orders for a few ladies but had to stop and create something for no particular reason. Another pocket....boy am I predictable! I think I need help....maybe we should all start a self help group. Many of you agreed it was a nesting thing...and that sounds good to me. Anyways...this one is in nuetrals again and full of old laces that I have tea -stained. Some fun images and burlap ribbons. These are quite large tags and are actually photo mats but I thought they made a fun layer on top of my other diecuts.
Of course I had to have a mini tag...this time with its own envelope. Many of you have asked about my bows and if I would do a tutorial. If you are interested just let me know. I could try to do a photo tutorial..step by step. I cheat when I make bows....I will let you know that. Very easy. Anyways I need to get a few things spic and span. Hope you enjoy and have a good weekend! hugs, cherry

Soooooooooo I have more blue for you. Maybe I am blue and don't know it..but anyway I have been craving that wintery blue. This time with a bit of yellow mixed in and a little pink. Just having fun using new goodies. I found some vintage buttons the other day while in the big town and am smitten with their old crazing and crackle. You just can not replicate that lovely aged look.
And what is it with pockets, envelopes...or anything for that matter that you can tuck something in? I go crazy for such things. I am like that with shelves, cubbies, and nooks too. Hmmm is it a nesting thing? A bit of tucking and I am happy. So the first card has a vellum envelope with what else but a tag inside. A secret place to write a sentiment. The second project is another envelope for easter..just gussied up with some goodies. I LOVE that sheer pink rose cabochon button...found it at Joanns. New buttons are soooo expensive but JoAnns had buy one get one free. Last card was a lot of fun for me to make....it feels old fashion and grannyish. I have always loved that Disney saying from Jimminy Crickett. Wellllllllll hope you enjoy. I have sooo many chores to do and nary the energy. I am going to bed. There is always tomorrow. Night night! hugs, cherry

Well..no velvet per se but a lot of blue this eve! Just yummmy aquas up in here. I was inspired by the seambinding color and some new goodies from Joanns. Spring will soon be here and that makes me oh so happy. I just have two projects here to share tonight. Both large tag diecuts that I paired up with envelopes. Lots of fun to make the outer package just as fun as the inside. The sweet sentiment is from Crafty Secrets. That is it...hope you enjoy! I am off to spend time with the family. hugs, cherry
