Fairy Magic Box

I have been working on this one since the moment I finished the last. Mostly mentally, but I KNEW I had to do it :). The flying bumblebee didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but the one on the flower is fine. I learned a few other things I will do a bit differently next time, but all in all am fairly pleased. More than I thought I would be yesterday when the wings were drying....

Magic box

I saw these and knew I wanted to try my hand at making one. It was a BLAST to do! I am pretty certain I will be making more. I don't have a purpose for them, but they are so much fun! I put the quarter in one of the pictures so you get a feel for the scale.

Couple more cards with fairies

YES- I love fairies :). I am not a super girly, girl, but I DO love the fairies!!

Another fairy

I used some more of the paper as a background for this card as well. The fairy stamp is from Susana's .

Aisian theme cards

I have some wonderful papers sent to me by a friend in Japan. I have been reluctant to use them as I don't want to use them all up. I have decided that I don't get to enjoy them when they are put away so I WILL be using them :) Here are a couple of cards I made.

March- gone too quickly

I have been laid off for the month of March. The no paycheck thing will hit in about a week (April 1st to be exact), but for now, the time has been WONDERFUL. It has lined up beautifully with the boys Spring Break-this week. I have also really enjoyed being the person to take care of my home and family. I have gotten a few smaller projects completed. I didn't tackle the really big one, but that is because I decided to stay small. I don't have as much time as I wish. The weather didn't/isn't cooperating as much as I would like for the outside activities, but they are started at least.
Just some general rambling, but I am LOVING this month! :)

BLOG Candy from Elisabeth Bell!

Elisabeth Bell is an illustrator that has had many of her images created as stamps. She has a style all her own and definitely has a way with capturing the moment! She has some BLOG candy going on now that asks what is the favorite from a particular group. Well, for me, that was EASY. It is Willow with Hot Chocolate. LOVE IT!

Check out her BLOG and let her know what your favorite is!

In Honor of Kevin Shea

This has been mailed to the parents of Marine Lt. Col. Kevin M. Shea (38). I am very grateful to all of those that send squares for these comfortghans. This mission is very, very important to me.
