Easter ATC's

for a swap...
I bought all the staff bunny ears for work last week 
and we all wore them.
Well., actually, I had a Mad Hatter Hat and so did one other person.  
We're Management, after all.
We had a graduation ceremony with families invited and we wore them.
One family member said, "I know you do great work, 
but I'm finding it hard to take you seriously."

Just Because

I came across this is a sleepy little prairie town.
It's not what one would necessarily consider to be graffiti, but I think it's pretty awesome.

and with the addition of Bonnie Zemian's textures:  
Medieval Magic and Age It
and then,
GRAFFITI-a rude decoration 
inscribed on rocks or walls
 I've added Bonnie's Age It and Medieval Magic Testures.
I love graffiti.
See you at Bonnie Zeiman's
and have a great Easter!

Challenge #153 at the Gluei Resort!

Hi folks.  It's time for a new challenge at

Go Where You Haven't Gone Before  
(I know, it makes me think of Star Trek too.)
For a long time now, I have wanted to make a piece of

But you know how that goes...I can't, it won't work, I'm not talented enough....
 That self talk can be a bitch.
Well, Grand Poobah Rosemary invited us to try something we have never tried before, 
it was either do cartwheels on the front lawn
(Yeah, right)
or try to do some She Art
She Art it is.  
 It took me a long time, but I have to say, I love it.
I made her skirt out of wax paper, glue, bits of stuff, and napkins.
  It was the perfect opportunity to go through my stash...
 It involved many, many, many, many, MANY, many, many,
many layers.
 And the most important thing is

I hope this inspires you to go when you have not been before..

Self Portrait

I have to admit that when Bonnie said this week's theme would be 
I said to myself, "Well, THAT will never happen."
But then I decided to play around.
This is what I got...
with the help of Bonnie's testures:
Artist, Artist's Easel, Abstract Scratches and Dream Wonder

and I'm OK with you seeing it.

See lots more artists at
and maybe even do a self portrait of your own!

"Oh no, you don't take MY picture!"

Beauty Is, Dropped Petals, and Serve Life,
an overlay by Shadowhouse Creations,
and a tearose by Gilded Bee, I created this:
There is lots of amazing art at Bonnie's

Western shades of Brown with Ecru and Cream

That, my friends is the new challenge at
Soartful Challenges
I made a birthday card for a man I work with who is a cowboy through and through.
He's big and you can here him coming as he ambles into the room.
Blue jeans and boots, that's what it's all about.
So that was the challenge for me, how to make a card for a rough and tough good ol' boy which was manly and fun too.

I hope Joe likes it.

And you can create something western or using shades of brown, ecru and cream. 
 It doesn't even have to be westerm, that's
 just a kick-start to your imagination.
I hope you visit
and check out all the inspiration from our Design Team 
and then join in with a project of your own!
You have until April 6th to take part in this challenge.
(Plenty of time)
See you there!
