Sewn Together Design Team Call

Sewn Together Image -- Halen Back to School




Thank God For Awesome Friends and Great Garage Sales!!!!!

Cindy AKA Futura on the Cricut MB, PM'd me and told me she was out at garage sales and said she seen something that made her think of me and needed my address. Well today I received an awesome package!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes when I unwrapped each stamp. I love house mouse and these are some of their earlier stamps. I was even more amazed that out of all the HM Stamps I already have, I had none of these!! I can't wait to use them!! But then I'm always scared of messing them up lol But Cindy made the best card also! The picture just doesn't do it justice. The colors are so vivid and the butterfly looks like it could just fly off the page! Thank you so much Cindy for your kindness and for thinking of me. This was so sweet of you and I will never be able to thank you enough!!! It couldn't have come at a better time!!!!
Thank you!!

Sorry So Slow....

Here's a card I made for a friend of mine for her birthday. It was funny though because this was the one time that the post office got the card there ON her birthday lol so kinda deleted the purpose of saying Sorry so Slow lol But anyways, the turtle is a Dustin Pike image. He is awesome!!
I was experimenting with my copics and with layering...I think it turned out alright. i know I have a lot more learning to do though. Coloring was done with Copics and PrismaPencils w/Gamsol. I printed off and colored the image 3 times.
Hope you like and thanks for looking!

Special Delivery!

Since I have so many pictures to post, I figured I would post here instead of taking up so much room on the Cricut board.
I have to thank a few folks for some special unexpected gifts I received over the past few days. First I received some stamped images from a very special Cricut board member through a swap we were in together, and when I opened the envelope, she had included 12 Copic Markers. She said she had doubles and wanted to share them with me. I'm not going to include her name until I know she won't mind, I don't want folks bothering her, but this angel was so very sweet in sending such a generous gift...and it was Just Because! How incredibly nice was that?? I'm not usually speechless, but this gesture totally took all words from my brain and lips. I could only sit there in amazement at such a generous gift.
Then like that wasn't awesome enough, Yesterday I get a package in the mail with just THANK YOU in the return address corner. I open it up and I find this amazing altered composition book, some zutter chipboard, and package of bling in the box! I loved the chipboard and bling, but the book was my absolute favorite and was unbelievably awesome. It left me speechless once again!! That someone took so much time to personalize this book for me and to include things that she knew was special to me! Below are pictures of the book and each section she made in the book. On the backside of each of these dividers was decorated with paper from the DCWV ROCKSTAR Stack..I love that stack!!! But the front of these dividers were unbelievable, AND she took my autographed EVERCLEAR pic off my blog and reduced it and included it in my notebook as well. I thought that was really cool when I seen that in there!!! So i wanted to share all of her hard work with everyone!! I did however find out who the mystery sender was, I recognized the postmark, and it was from Nancy aka GOINCRICRAZY from the Cricut MB!!
I just want to thank both of you for being amazing ladies!!!!
Although I know that words will never repay you for these awesome gifts!!
THANK YOU!!

Twilight!!--Altered Mini Comp Book

Below is another project for a Twilight Swap I'm in. Hopefully the other ladies in my group will like them. Guess the good thing about having a 17yr old driving me crazy, I can get lost for a bit in my crafts...lol and get caught up in my swaps!

These are the smaller comp books then altered with different papers. Twilight pictures gathered and printed from various websites on the internet and then resized and laid out in PSP. Tree paper on the front and back from DCWV (thanks Anna for picking these up for me!!)
Divider made in the middle to hold the ribbon book mark. Apples are various buttons that I had on hand.
Thanks for looking!!

Below is a wooden box that I altered for a Goth Swap I hosted on the Cricut MB. The Goth Fairy is by Jessica Galbreth. I'm a big fan of her work! Box was painted with a metallic red acrylic paint. Various ribbons, skull paper from the DCWV Rockstar Stack...name was cut out with SCAL..(Thanks Michele!!)

Thanks for looking!!!
